We probably would have spent the entire weekend out on the porch; unfortunately we've not been industrious enough to clear off the 1/4-inch of pollen that's coating every surface out there.
Here is a rare glimpse of the kids playing nicely together building a castle of some sort. Don't be too impressed. It lasted about as long as it took me to grab the camera and take this shot.
This morning, the kids and I played out in the front yard (avoiding the aforementioned porch.) Michael ran in to get his juice which I let him do on his own. Mistake No. 1 of the day. I came in a short while later to find this scene in the kitchen.
Spring planting was finished up yesterday. Now all I have to do is remember to water everything...
These little trees of pollen look so clever, so harmless. So not true.
We took the kids to Holwell Park today for a picnic and some playtime.
I should know better than to ask Ella to look at the camera for me.
Yes, I really should know better.
