Greg used his chainsaw and Thomas pulled using an extension cord (He will have to start his own blog so you can read an explanation of why they were using it!) All the girls stood at a very safe distance away. When it came down Caroline was a little worried about what happened. It took her several minutes to decide it was okay to get out of my arms and check out the debris. I kept explaining that it was dead and we had to cut it down to make the yard a safe place to play. Here’s an after picture:
Before bringing the tree down, we bought tomato and strawberry plants at the Farmer’s
At one point she wanted Thomas’ shovel and he had to use hers!
Time to wash up! She LOVES playing in the hose. We're still loving her shoes Aunt B got her. The mud washes right through!
I want to end on a “smiling” picture (because who knows how long it will be before my next entry!)
Thanks to Aly Claire, we have discovered how much Caroline LOVES drinking from straws! It’s so cute watching her drink from these cups. (I don’t know why she’s holding it like that, she doesn’t usually do that.)
If only she ate spinach like Popeye, too!
