Backyard Adventures and Memories

We have so many memories with the home and we are thankful. On the weekend we had lots of neighbourhood kids over for a balloon fight, sprinkler under the trampoline, popcicles and just fun. I had errands to do so Daddy was in charge for lots of it!!! Glad for the memories.

My sister reminded me to to take pictures of our place to remember! How soon our memories fade (especially as we get older yikes!) So, I took one of this remarkable tree. It is called a catellapa tree (not sure of the spelling) but the leave are larger than any leaf I have ever seen. It makes my feel like I am in a rain forest when I sit under it. The pods that eventually grow are like a green beans on steroids!! It is really something and I have always loved that tree. I plan on taking some pods with us and planting some and over the years see if we can enjoy another one. Okay, it may take 20 yrs, but why not!

Now onward to a new place for more memories, 10 days until we move!!

I can't believe it's coming up so quickly!
I'm glad your sister told you to take photos! Not that you don't have enough already but these will focus on the details you'd probably forget. Great idea. Enjoy your last days!
