Shady Happenings

With temperatures soaring into triple digits for the next few days, I am unusually grateful for the large apricot tree in our backyard. Not only does it supply more apricot products than we ever consume in a year, but this week it keeps the princess picnics we have back here while Jake's in school a little cooler.

I suppose to the untrained eye this would look like a pretty messy backyard. To me it looks like the makings of a happy childhood as Abby and Grace eat, swing, slide, dig, play catch, and best of all, giggle together. It's the best of summer.

Thank goodness for a little shade.
