Another sign of Spring

The other night while I was shooting pictures , I decided I needed some new pics of the waterfall in our backyard. I love the sounds and just watching the water. I would never have built something like this in a backyard, the pond and the waterfall are huge. When we moved in , everything was already here so we have just been cleaning it up and enjoying it. Some days I feel so out of place at home. Our house is too big and the backyard is huge. I should feel blessed I guess, we got it at a good price and at the right time. Of course shortly after we moved out here we had our second child and life has been changing ever since. I want to use the space for something good, I'm just not sure what.
We planted a garden this year, a small one that I think I will expand to try and keep our costs down... Eat off the land, and work to make the surrounds more peaceful.
I know the boys are loving the space and I don't have to take them to the park as we have such a big back yard... If gas prices weren't so high I could have friends down to play but we live in the country and far enough away from people that it is hard. I guess it is a mixed blessing.


  1. Cariann, your backyard picture is so lovely. Might I get a copy of it for my faithbooking album? I reminds me of such tranquility and peace. It would be a honor to be blessed with it. Sincerely,

  2. Cari -I love the picture of your backyard. It does look so peaceful, you guys are pretty lucky.We saw diesel this morning for $4.29! Sheesh!
