Sunday we decided we would stay home after Mass and get some chores done around the house. One of Caitlin’s favorite chores is working on the patio. As soon as we started she asked for help putting on the garden gloves.


Note to self: Pick up a pair of kid-sized garden gloves!


(Please ignore the floating floral fabric…we had a few pillowcases on the clothesline!)


We’ve had poinsettias in the garden boxes on the balcony since December. The Irishman finally replaced them and took down the Christmas lights. (Yes, you read that correctly. Yes, it is May. Don’t judge!) Some of the poinsettias had some new growth so he has replanted them elsewhere and is currently giving some TLC in hopes that they will make it until December.


Caitlin thought they all deserved a chance to be replanted…


Her favorite part of working in the garden is watering the plants.


She begged and begged for Daddy to turn on the hose until he gave in,


and that’s when the real fun started!
