The Weekend of Much Yardwork. . .

My parents were in town last weekend for mother's day and to help us move. . . Mother's Day happened, the move didn't. So we put them to work helping play with Lucy and tame our crazy yard, or was it the other way around? Thank goodness I come from a long line of excellent yardworkers, hope those green thumbs are a dominant trait.

Here is my dad up in a tree where he also hung a rope swing for the nephews:

And Gramma Gwen trimming back the hedge in front:
And me trying to save the lilacs from the ivy that was choking them. Don't look at me, look at the lilac:

Here is my mom playing with Lucy, don't they look alike?

Or does Lucy look more like me?

Anyhow, we got a lot done. Thanks, Mom and Dad and Gramma! Are you busy next weekend?

that was fun to see the whole family at work! I agree I love the color of the doors and the antique knobs! Keep up the hard work! I can't wait to see the finished product!

Your parents are amazing. They are such hard works and super cute with Lucy. Wish I was being helpful. It is looking awesome.
