Saturday Fun

Some Saturdays we break from our normal weekend fun and actually do some work around the house and in the yard.
With the help of some strong young men we cut up a limb that had fallen from this oak tree.
See where it was rotten?

JuneBug and I came out to bring them water and they had a lot of the smaller branches already cut off. The limb was long enough to go touch the fence but not do any damage, for which we were thankful.

Perfectly sized to fit into the wood stove, after splitting of course.

"Someday I'll be helping too...."

One Saturday the lawn needed tending...
JuneBug loved to watch his Daddy. Later I set him up in his booster seat so that he could watch out of the other windows.

As he was mowing, Ike went right over a yellow jacket's nest. Later that night we put gas into the hole and the next day we dug it up.
It's a big one!

Carolina Clay

I hadn't seen one before so this was very interesting for me.

Thar she is! It's the queen!
It was a deep hole and there were a lot of yellow jackets.
