30 - Yard Work

Today the sun broke through, the clouds cleared away, and the angels sang. It was the first day in weeks that it really was nice enough to get some much needed yard work done. Our back yard was a MESS! Many days of snow/rain/fog/sleet made for some serious nastiness. Mr. Incredible and #2 got out the manly tools, and got to it. So here (because you have ALWAYS wanted to know this process) is how our yard gets cleaned up.

First, Mr. Incredible gets out a blowy thing and gets all the leaves away from the fence...

keep going

get all those suckers

but always take time out to enjoy the scenery!

I know - I am one lucky girl!  ANYWAY...You also have to find a sucker kid to suck all the leaves up. He must be big enough to start the monstrosity...

Then he gets to work sucking up all the leaves.

Soon the bag is full and you must throw it over the fence,

(There's the hottie again!) Run around and throw it over your sholder

Drag it up into the woods

and spread it all around (Dad will not be happy if it just gets piled!)

And, voilla, you have a nice clean yard....well after you threaten, beg, torture and promise good things to eat to #'s 1 and 3 to get all the trash and dog biscuits picked up :0)
