How I wanted to spend today might be a bit different from what other moms did today. But it was an AWESOME day and I did exactly what I wanted to.
There was water play in our new pool,
I weeded the strawberry bed and admired the beautiful blooms that have suddenly appeared.
And we planted a tree! Well, transplanted it really. This small maple tree was in a different part of our yard, being choked out by a larger bush so we decided to try and move it to save it. I don't know if it will make it because we couldn't get a lot of roots, but we will see.
If this one doesn't make it we have decided we will buy a small tree to put in this spot. We need a bit more shade in our yard and are hoping that we can save this small tree tree and not have to buy one, but we will see.
We ended the day with a great dinner, reading time and cuddles.
It was a great outdoor day full of productivity, fun and laughter. What could be better than that?
Hope you all had a great Mother's Day!
