We are having the most PERFECT weather! About 70 degrees, and pretty dry for Louisiana. Not the sweltering humidity we are accustomed to.
And the Groves Clan is taking full advantage of it!
We all go out in the driveway or yard EVERY evening to play around. On this particular day, Gabbi Lou chose tossing leaves.
She thoroughly enjoyed herself!!
Back and forth, over and over. I believe she could've done this til the sun went down.
And with such zeal and JOY!
Have I mentioned how much I love this kid?!
ANd then there was this other little girl. ...
Oh, wait. I interrupt this message to let you check out my gorgeous tulips!!
and look at how AWESOME they look by my front door. They will look even better when the new entrance is built!
Ok, so back to that other cute kid. She is a fun loving kid! She is the one who occasionally reminds me that I am almost 42! She makes me use every last bit of my energy!!
And the sass that comes out of her mouth at 3 amazes me. I just keep trying to delicately prepare her dad for things to come! Teenage years should be quite interesting!
Awww, man! No words! There's our sweet Earl! Only a few days before he died. We sure do miss that sweet fella!
Gosh, I LOVE flowers! You should see what my newest employee and I have done to create my garden around my cottage!
That employee would be Hunter! ANd believe it or not, he's been working pretty hard for me! I'm kinda amazed!
As I am about this...it could be Holland!!
Ok, so maybe that's an exaggeration, but they ARE pretty awesome, arent't they?!
Oh, and that wall behind Ellie? It will be covered with fig ivy. I have about 10-15 plants down the side of that wall that just need some time to grow, grow, grow. I LOVE the warmth of a home with ivy growing on it. Makes it feel older and lived in, sooner!
Hey, Gabbi, raise your hand if you love red tulips!
Umm hmmm. That's what I thought!
Yo gabbi Girl. Let's take one of those flowers in to look beautiful in our house. Wanna?!
Oh yeah. that's my ball playing girl!
And this is my drama queen!
And that? THAT would be a big ass tree that had to be knocked down when we were building our house and has STILL not been moved! Hey, who's gonna come cut this thing up!? Jeff? you coming? Get that sucker outta my yard!!
And guess what else. We now have GREEN GRASS! I mean straight up, green, like summertime green, grass!!
Can you belive how awesome these colors are?! I LOVE these tulips! Had to take one in for myself.
