This year we tried to be a little smarter about what we were going to plant in our front yard. The last two years have shown us things that don’t do well in Colorado weather. We made a few trips to Lowe’s to pick up the flowers and then we had the kids help us plant our new flowers and weed in between the rocks. The boys are never quite thrilled when we tell them they are going to do yard work with us but they always seem to have a good attitude once they start. Luckily the girls are at an age where they want to help. When the front yard was finished it looked so nice. Poor little Abby started out so happy but later I found her in the front hallway in the house asleep on the floor. The poor girl had a fever so I laid her in her bed to rest for the remainder of the day.
