The Great Outdoors

We have loved every minute in our new home (well, except for the armadillo and the dead scorpion I found by the breakfast table...).  One of our favorite things is how quiet it is in our neighborhood and having backyard space again!  After 2 months in a rental with no outdoor space, the boys were ready to play outside and get dirty!  We have enjoyed throwing on their "outside shoes" after dinner and enjoying time outside when it is not so hot.  Here are some pictures from our evening outside tonight.

It was a beautiful night and I love how the tall trees in our neighborhood look against the blue sky.

I guess he thought they looked like safety glasses?

Oh yeah! Having a testosterone moment.

Joshua's favorite outside activity is petting the neighbor's very friendly cat, Eliza.  He calls her "Wiza".  She looks like she could have been a litter mate for our cat Ginger.

This week someone started building on the lot across the street from us.  So far Joshua has been able to nap in spite of the excavation noise during the day, and his room is closest to the street!

The boys have enjoyed watching the heavy equipment from our playroom and checking on the progress each evening once the crew leaves.

Bryan & Caleb headed over to our neighbor's lot

Caleb said, "Maybe if I jump it will make smoke when I land." 

When you live on a not so busy street, it's totally ok to sit down in the middle of the road to get the "smoke" aka dirt out of your shoe.

We have added some flowers to the front of our house and the porch and love how it looks!

I even got my sweet Joshie to pose by my new bougainvillea.
