Under that ol' Willow...

were about half a million twigs to be picked up and an entire summer of fun just waiting to be discovered! And it didn't take but seconds for Carter and Ceili to discover what all that old tree has to offer as they were picking "food" for the worms that they had been digging!
Our parents were out of town a few weeks ago so we, I mean us and my sister and her family, all headed over to mom and dads to do a little Spring Cleaning while they were away. It turned into 8 hours of raking, piling, and for the most part just playing. The weather was absolutely perfect so we made the best of it and had a blast together.
Carter and Ceili climbing the good old cottonwood.

Ceili and Carter pitch in and do a little cleaning themselves...i mean after all this is their table! They had so much fun cleaning this little table that they actually came over and helped us clean the other patio furniture. How sweet is that?

Here's Carter taking a little break from cleaning to perfect his soccer skills

Matt and Justin were hard at work putting together the new playground that Nana and Papaw had bought for the kids. Above you can see that Carter and Ceili just couldn't wait any longer to play on it so they grabbed some tools and decided to help!

Here's Keaton testing out the new glider before it is hung!

On your mark, get set, GO!! I cannot even begin to count how many times Carter and Ceili raced down one side and then the other side of the bridge. I guess some things just never get old.

And after a long day of cleaning and playing we all left...still loving one another!!

I love the pictures of the kiddos playing in the yard. It reminds me of some other little girls that use to love to play under the willows!! Dad and I have the greatest family, you all taking time out of your busy schedules to do something so great meant the world to Dad and I. We will never be able to thank you enough!! All we can say is that we "love you" and appreciate it so much. Thanks again!
