I discovered freezing mango, kiwi and grapes in a Popsicle mold with lemon flavored water makes the most refreshing of snacks – and also a fun addition to breakfast. I have a feeling we’ll be making lots of these simple Popsicles this summer.
Paul has been busy working in the backyard.
He dug the holes for their swing set he is going to be building from scratch.
I brought the swings back from Nigeria that the boys spent hours playing on.
I wish I could have that same tree in our yard to hang the swings from – but a hand made swing set by their daddy will be the next best thing!
He had a minor glitch that set back his plans for finishing it, but it will happen soon. The sunshine and gentle breeze are just begging for swings and giggly boys soaring through the air.
Paul also built a couple raised garden beds as we are going to do a bit of gardening this summer -both for fresh vegetables for ourselves and to give the boys an education on plant life.
My favorite addition to our backyard is our new hammock.
We bought the Eagles Nest Outfitters DoubleNest Hammock with plans on using it for camping trips – Paul and I each in our own hammock with each of us having one boy sleeping with us. I’ll let you know how those camping trips go. For now it has been a delightful spot to spend reading in our own backyard.
I love that April in the South is as warm as a summer in the North.Related:
