Memorial Day Fun

We spent time this weekend working on the backyard, attempting to reclaim it from the dogs. Billy built an awesome deck, which you can see a little bit of in this picture. We have some landscaping we want to do around the deck and hope to accomplish that next weekend.

The babies loved being outside and were content to play by themselves for a while.
(Yes, M. is wearing American flag shorts.)

Then they started fighting over toys. Baby Boy D. climbed on top of Baby Girl M., and she retaliated by pulling his hair. I have photos, but they are graphic. (Just kidding!)
Here is J. getting to know the ground a little better.
What these photos don't show was the screaming, crying, falling down, and other hysterics and general chaos that occurred while Daddy was trying to grill and supervise a toddler and Mommy was trying to feed babies and then get them situated outside. But the end result was a relaxing evening in the backyard with our family, and well worth the trouble.
