Y is for Yard Crew

When we first moved into this house a year ago, the Yard needed a lot of work. The grass was knee high, the plants were wild and wooly and going everywhere.
So, my wonderful Yard Crew set to work. They dug, planted, raked, washed, watered, mowed and weeded.
They worked very hard, so we fed them good food cooked on the grill by my Old Guy.
It was a great day, family all around, sun shining, music in the background, laughter, food, babies fussing.
It does not get better than that.


Here it is again, Alphabe-Thursday at Jenny Matlocks place.
Come on over.
