Backyard fun

Our little family enjoyed plenty of sunshine in our backyard today.
Here are some of my "creative shots". 
Yeah, I was a little bored and and way to much
Photoshop time on my hands.

 Brandon played in his sandbox for a long time. Long enough to empty out huge amounts of sand out into the grass when Gabe and I had our backs turned. Lets just say lesson learned!

 Brandon and Gabe got to bond over some good ole fashion tree climbing.

 My lazy attempt to snap a shot of Brandon and I together....Yay for the girl with half a face!

 I got to sit down and enjoy getting my hands dirty in the dry dead leafs and winter grass.

 I just loved the way the sun rays looked. Well I love the sun period in the winter.

And of course when Brandon got bored of the sandbox he went straight to collecting rocks...
He is such a boy!

Anyway, moral of the story is...

 Sometimes it just feels so good to relax in the yard, soak up some sunshine, and do absolutely nothing...
I get so caught up in new activities and places to go I forget to just live simple.
Today was a much needed break :)
