Saturday, David came home with a new toy. A new mower and a trailer are purchases we have discussed for a long time now, since the yard is really just too big to push mow. David has been eyeing the mowers at Williams Tractor for awhile now and decided to break down and buy one. I was hoping he would buy a used mower, since new ones are so expensive, but he said he doesn't want to have to deal with other people's problems. : ) The trailer was used though. It came in handy over the weekend when David started some more landscaping projects- a blue cypress, river birch, and a Japanese maple. He also bought some plants for the porch to replace the fall topiaries.
My mom teased me and said for the price of that mower I could have gotten a brand new wedding ring, taken a round trip flight to Cancun, and bought all new furniture. Ha, ha! Oh well... David can now get our acre mowed in less than an hour as opposed to five. I know it makes the work load easier for him. : ) I am glad to not have to borrow my parents' trailer whenever we need to haul something. I hate borrowing from people anyway- I always feel anxious knowing I am responsible for something that doesn't belong to me.
Sunday, we had a family lunch at my granny's house for Father's Day.
Chyann and Madsion, our nieces, spent the night last night and are here hanging out today. We have had fun making cookies, watching Grease, and taking bubble baths!
