Spring is on it's way, or at least we hope it is, and with it comes garden and yard projects which both Josh and I enjoy. Josh decided to take advantage of this semi-dry weekend to begin one of the many landscaping projects we hope to accomplish in the coming months. The project ended up involving a tarp, the hose and a bunch of rocks needing to be cleaned of mud and moss all of which resulted in the creation of Owen's paradise - his very own pond!
There have been two other occasions this winter where Josh and Owen have "worked" outside together and it is quickly becoming one of my favorite things to observe. Owen follows Josh around, mimicking his actions or simply shadowing his every move with a stick or ball in hand. He seems to enjoy just being with Josh and I love watching them together. So, knowing how much fun Owen has when Josh is working outside I bundled him up and sent him to "help" Daddy with the rocks. He definitely was of no help to Josh, and in fact he probably made it more difficult, seeing that he stole rocks away from Josh's project to throw in to the tarp pond but he was in heaven.
I don't think there could be anything better than throwing rocks in the water all while being outside with his Dad.
