H loves to work in our backyard. It's funny how much a back door can make a difference for back yard enjoyment. In our NoDa house, we never used the backyard. You had to go out the side door and then around the back. Plus once the kids were out there you couldn't really see what they were doing from the front area of the house. Now we have this back door and window so I can see everyone. H and R really seem to love just being outside. I'm looking forward to some cooler fall weather so that we can spend even more time out there.
And how wonderful to look up from such a menial task as dishes and see that scene. It makes my heart leap up in joy.
