This is Audra looking out the window (this is HER window- she can stand here and look outside for hours) watching Daddy cut the grass. What a sweet girl!

The First of Many
This is probably not the most exciting news of the world, but Ben got to mow the lawn for the first time this last weekend. He has been excited to have a yard to take care of, and our yard is pretty small so it only takes about 20 minutes to mow. You'll notice we got an old fashioned reel mower- no gas, no spark plugs, no electricity- just good old fashioned pushing. People told us not to get one because they are so tough to work, etc- NOT SO! This thing is awesome- you feel like you are pushing air! They are a ton cheaper and super easy to work, so if you are in the market for a new mower, we would highly recommend this type! Even I am willing to go mow the lawn with this, and that is saying a lot, because I defintely believe that mowing the lawn is Ben's job. Sexist? Perhaps, but hey- I make dinner every night.
