Sigh.......See this pile? This is nothing...this is actually progress! This is what our weekends for the past 6 weeks have consisted of....
All five of us picking up all these sticks and leaves (and any surprises lurking beneath) and burning, burning, burning....
The boys take frequent breaks!
We have made our boys into pyromaniacs to say the least.
However, we have been having lots of fun having friends over for wiener roasts! We have smore's and hotdogs about every weekend now.
To give you a little more information, our driveway is lined with Bradford Pears. I use to LOVE these trees. Now they are a thorn in my side. Since July 1st, we have had two major incidents with these trees - aka wind. These trees do NOT like wind. Nor ice or snow for that matter. We constantly are picking up fallen limbs and trees - hence the reason for our unending brush pile.
The boys really like messing around out there and are a big help most of the time. They have come to enjoy this "work" and I'm thankful for that. It's much better than sitting inside watching tv all day. And let's face it - we will be inside a lot over the next coming months so we are trying to soak as much outdoor time in as we can.
