Grandma's Backyard in the Fall

Playing in Grammy's backyard is so much fun no matter what season. Cadence wants to be outside in her backyard when it is dark, middle of the night, raining, snowing, first thing in the morning, etc. She loves all there is to do!!! This trip was no exception.

The guy that rents Grammy's garden space has three sheep in her backyard. They are named Lawnie (the black one) and Dumb and Dumber (The white ones). Lawnie is the friendliest. Cadence is a little nervous around them, but this trip she was really into putting sticks through the fence in hopes they would eat/chew on them. (Cadence really enjoys all the fabulous activities she can do with sticks.)
She also loved swinging and pushing Cooper and I in the swing!!! There were lots of wet leaves. and while Cadence was napping, I was raking. If the leaves weren't wet, we would have had tons of fun jumping in the big piles!!!
There was a little snow and Cadence was thrilled to make her footprints in the snow. It looks like that will be a favorite activity this winter- just like last winter.
Grammy has decided that she is NOT retiring this year due to the economy and plans to teach another 3 years. She will be in her house another 3 years at least so my kids will have three more enjoyable years of Grammy's backyard!!!

Thanks for your comments!

I tried to find more ethnicities with beards, you know, to represent, but all I got were cosumes.

Hey, remember the time you went to prom with Arnold? I still remember that, and it was awesome!
