Backyard Paradise

It's not often that a May 2-4 weekend is as amazing as you plan for it to be.  This weekend has been the best one since I was 17 years old! For quite different reasons, although the perfect weather helped both times.
Friday, Sunday and Monday have been spent outside (Saturday, it rained, but I was inside for Cordelia's birthday party anyway).  How perfect!! What made it the most amazing was that my backyard is finally ready for summer and it's like Mother Nature knew that and sent us a good dose of it.  Here is what makes my yard the best:
Drinking water from the new sprinklers
Swings and
monkey bars!
Water table - which used to be the favourite, but the pool now wins that honour
Shady haven for King and I
the clothesline
the adored $10 kiddie pool (with added on slide from our old neighbours curb)

Rachel's birdfeeder and water (the birds were hungry)
my vegetable garden
baby laughs
and naps outside.
