David's New Chore

Dustin has been meaning to teach David how to mow the lawn for weeks now, but it seemed that every time they would have the time, Seattle would bless us with yet more rain. Finally, yesterday afternoon the sun peaked out of the clouds for the afternoon and David got his chance to mow. He loved it! haha...I mean, he was grinning ear to ear the entire time. We have a slight hill in the back yard that he struggled with, and the grass being a little bit wet made it even harder..but he did it! The veins were popping out of his head as he pushed with all his might, but he didn't want any help. The lines weren't perfectly straight, and there were a few missed patches, but he accomplished the task and I am so proud of my little man.

My Vintage Umbrella

When I found this old umbrella I fell in love with it immediately. It is covered in little sayings and quotes about "Love" written in gold. I was wondering about it's previous owner as I sat beneath it the other day at David's game. I wondered if they had found "love" in their life, and possibly shared a kiss in the rain beneath it. That's my romantic side coming out in me I suppose. Now it's my turn to make memories as I use it for shelter from the Seattle rain.
