Our backyard is very small. Not at all reminiscant of the yard I grew up in- big, grassy, surrounded by trees- and oh, sweet privacy! But we've made the most of our small space. I have a small flower bed, and John keeps an array of herbs in pots of different shapes, sizes and colours. On our deck, we have a table that will seat four, with four chairs and an umbrella. Joshua has a small slide, a little-tike sized basketball net and now a kiddie pool.
Earlier this week, my friend Raina came over with her son. Joshua and Andrew spent most of the time playing in the living room while Raina and I shouted over the screeching, squeals and laughter. They stayed for four hours and it was a blast. They did spend a short time in the kiddie pool in our backyard and thanks to Raina, I have a few pictures. Here's one of them-- neither of them wanted to sit in the water at all:
And here's a few pictures from the park:
I love how this one turned out:
Looking forward to more sunny summer days- though it's hard to believe it's already July!
