Backyard Fun

Our dream came true this summer - a backyard!  The boys are having a blast racing their cars, splashing in the pool, chasing and catching frogs and toads, and swatting mosquitoes.  Okay, maybe we don't love the last part, but it's the price we're paying for having such a beautiful woods in our backyard.  (Thank goodness for Cutter, Off! and Bullfrog insect repellants.)

Our newest invention: the water slide!

Just like daddy - driving cars and mowing the lawn.

They love being traced - our patio looks like a crime scene!

Getting ready for another race

Sharing a snack at the end of the day
That last one is my favorite!  Last night, I brought them a snack to eat before heading in to bed.  Rather than eating it at their picnic table, they both got in their cars with the snack and "parked" themselves like this, under a tree, like they were watching the sunset together.  They sat like this for a long time!
