Really, we are a making family

The bug has a pretty big assortment of dress up outfits and accessories. As in a lot of stuff.

In the above Before picture we had it all just thrown in a big basket in one of our wagons to handle overflow.

Now at least hanging things can hang and the rest fits in the basket. And the whole thing is on casters!

And here is little one with the Man adding a few hooks for various extras.

Not terribly pretty. But just what we needed and made in less than an hour from things on hand. Yeehaw!

Busy backyard

We had a little bit of rain this morning and boy did that make for a busy backyard. So many little birds flying around, singing and chirping and talking and raising a ruckus. It was great to hear. I looked outside and saw all sorts of movement in the garden and realized it was all the little birds feeding. Glasses helped to confirm that theory. And here is some photographic evidence. 

And now that the sun has come out for a little bit, all is quiet again. 

I love how they are all lined up on this one. Although with their backs to the camera. The shot below shows what they were hiding - bright beautiful bellies. And why is it that the boys are so much better looking than the girls.

And in hindsight I am not sure why I am posting these pics for 'all' to see. Yikes do we have some big weeds on THE HILL. Well, at least the little guys like them. One advantage, right? But only in the rain....

Have I told you about THE HILL? This was my nemesis last year. I attacked this hill with all I had for many, many months. I'll need to pull out some old photos to show you where we were, and were we are today. Actually, it looks pretty good, aside from these pictures and these weeds. It is still a work in progress, but it is progressing and what more can you ask for, right? (Note to self: no more pictures of just weeds. It is depressing.)

I hope the rain comes back. I love looking at these guys.
