We had some super warm days last weekend. It was 90 on Saturday. And then Sunday had a high of 52. Still, we enjoyed the warmth (or at least survived. I don't like the 90's.) and went swimming. The kids love goggles.
Gilbert had a little trouble with his.
Saturday evening, we went up to the neighbors for a surprise birthday party. We had a lovely time.

Monday morning, I took the girls and some chocolate chip cookies to school. When I came back, I decided to cut back some of my bleeding heart, which overtakes the flower bed pretty quickly. And then I noticed how much I needed to weed the flower beds. And then I saw stuff that needed to be loaded up in Justin's truck for the dump. While I was doing that, I noticed how very filthy our house was, so I washed it. (I feel like this is a more boring version of If You Give a Mouse a Cookie)
This is the before picture. The whole house did not look like this. This was the worst part, where an outside cabinet was up against the wall.
Ten minutes later, with the hose, some soap, and a rag. Unfortunately, I can't reach all the way up the house, but the hose got a lot of dirt off and it does look better.
(We have finally got our rain! Three days of raininess has made everything lovely.)
Lupine leaves. How awesome are these leaves? I don't know why the water droplets do this on Lupine leaves, but it is fabulous.
A peachy one
Please ignore my dirty window. I can never keep it clean this close to the road.
