Our Backyard!!!!!

We are renters, so usually our backyard consists of a tiny balcony or a small pad of grass. Not this time!!! God has completely blown our expectations by bringing us the most perfect rental house, with a magical backyard. Magical? You might ask. It is a backyard where at night, in the dark of night, thousands of fireflies dance around and illuminate....it is as if you can see thousands of beautiful blinks of light. I was speechless the first time I saw it for myself. It is a backyard where you can hear birds, it is as if you are in the rainforest at times, you can just sit out back and hear so many birds chirping, it is delightful. It is a place where even if it is 100 degrees in the house and you feel like you cannot go on, you can go outside and find refuge and peace under the shade of our tree. It is the spot of many beautiful warm dinners, where we can chat and laugh and thank God for all of our blessings. Yes it is indeed a magical backyard.

Love, Love, Love!

She loves to climb. She loves to hang on bars and dangle her cute little tan legs. Each morning she asks, "can we go rock climbing?"  She is my little monkey!!!

Warm Summer Nights.

Sometimes the heat drives you outside where it is warm, but nice. Such was the case last night when we passed the time on our front porch. It was so quiet, we chatted, and caught strange bugs.  Hazel chewed gum, and laughed. It was a lovely collection of warm summer moments.

Date with St. Peter


Hazel and Dad went on a date. Hazel said she wanted to go for a hike....

So we did at St. Peter's village, about 15 minutes from our house.

Hazel even brought her own camera, and took a few pics. We will download those later.

Strawberry Pickin'

The girls and I, accompanied by dear sweet friends.....visited an organic Strawberry farm and picked strawberries. It was fun...and the strawberries were beyond yummy.
