We decided since it has been in the high 90's it was time to break out the pool. Too bad the well water is too cold for him to actually sit in it.

|Best part of this design is that it closes so animals can't make it their litter box and it opens up to make benches.|
|Little Lukie loves his sandbox|
|He is all boy, loves the dirt.|

After the park, we headed home and started on the yard. We mowed, trimmed, racked and pulled weeds and the best part of it was giving Lucas a ride in the wheelbarrow with the grass clippings. It brought back so many memories I had of riding in my grandpa's grass filled wheelbarrow.
The yard was finished and the last thing I wanted to do was go into the house on this perfect evening, so the whole crew laid on the trampoline. We got to witness an incredible sunset and enjoy each other's company... Perfect way to end a perfect day.
|He rode the carousel 3 times.|
|Nice and comfy.|
|Go faster Momma!|
|Idaho sunsets are spectacular.|

|Love his little profile|
|He melts my heart.|

Because we had warmer than usual winter and spring, I took the chance of planting my flower garden earlier than usual, about 1 month earlier. I took the chance of it freezing and losing everything but was lucky enough that this never occurred.
|Prior to planting the spring flowers. My flower bed is sparse anymore when it comes to tulips and daffodils, so I bought some hyacinths and more daffodils after the Easter sales, so next year they should come up and be gorgeous.|
|Last year when Grandma Avery passed away on May 5th the lilacs were about 1 month away but this year they were in bloom on the anniversary of her passing.|

Well it has been a month since I planted my flower garden and it is getting fuller and more gorgeous. The extra month of growth will really prove itself later this summer.

Sunday we had to go up to the cabin to bring home the things Chris took up for Fathers n Sons since he didn't have time since the semi was coming to haul the cows up for the summer.. So we took advantage of it and made a picnic and headed up after church. After our picnic we decided to take a hike up into the trees behind the cabin. Lucas did fantastic and was able to keep up with us long legged parents. We hiked about 1 1/2 miles and by the end Luke's little legs were tired and I carried him the rest of the way. Thankfully it was just a few hundred yards. While on our hike we took advantage of the beauty around us and showed Luke what a beautiful Earth we live on.

So Lucas and his Da Da went on their 2nd Fathers and Sons outing up to Avery Acres with the Foothill ward. Lucas was so excited that he was going to go camping again and especially excited to be going with his dad. Though when I buckled him in his car seat he decided he wanted me to come with him too. They had a great time up there and from what I could tell Lucas and James Coles played hard the whole time. James is Luke's age just 5 weeks older, and they are best buddies in Nursery.
|Of course they stopped on the way and Da Da bought him his favorite thing, a sucker.|
|The aftermath, he was filthy and smelt of fire, but that's how its supposed to be|
He was so excited to see me and tell me everything. But the best part was he wanted a big hug.

So Lucas and I were outside and Chris came out telling us that there was a massive storm brewing right on top of and wanted to go driving in it. Of course we jumped into the car and started to drive to the top of the Iona hill. As we were getting ready to turn left onto Foothill Rd, the sunset caught my eye because of the ominous clouds were enclosing around us. I didn't have my nice camera so the colors didn't come through as spectacular but they are still impressive.
We didn't make it to the top of the hill due to the fact lightning was striking all around us and the rain was coming in sideway with the wind howling 60 - 70mph. It was an intense storm and it brought close to 2.25 inches of rain in about 20 - 30 minutes. Foothill Rd and the cross section of 85th was flooded due to the runoff from the hill and made for a horrible muddy mess.
