Playing in Our Backyard and Our House

Tori and I went outside after her morning nap on Saturday to watch Jason fix our lawn. Our lawn is HUGE!!! and it takes a lot of work. It is a little overwhelming sometimes (we are on 3/4 of an acre!) and sometimes it seems the lawn has a mind of it's own!

Tori peeking at Daddy and running free...the grass makes her a little nervous!

So you see how huge our yard is? And this is only half of it!!! I think that she is excited about one of our trees here! Classic Tori expression!

So darned cute!

We have a grape trellis outside our fenced garden space. She likes to pop the grapes out of their skins. (Daddy taught her this!)

Picking grapes (I am still not sure if she should eat them...)

Wow...look how tall! She looks like a little munchkin!


Eating a leaf near our butterfly bush

She's our tree hugger!

It looks like you LOVE your house! Did you paint the walls, or did they come like that? I LOVE your HUGE kitchen too!

WOW!!! A House......A real house!!! I want one too!!! I love your strange tree, it has character. The only thing that is missing is a picture of me lying around in the guest room! ;) I can't wait to come out and see it....I don't know when that will be, but hopefully soon. Can Tori's eyes get any bigger! I Love her. She is too adorable. Give her a squeeze for me. Did I mention how much I wanted a house too?????? Oh....well, it will only take a decade or so before we can get into one half the size of yours, under a freeway, next to some. peddlers. Oh...the joy of living in California. Love you tons!!!!
