Playing on the roof and other adventures

So we had that little storm the other night. I spent part of the day yesterday outside cleaning up the rest of the mess in my yard. There were some more branches on the main part of the house roof, so I had to get the ladder out in order to climb from the garage roof to the house roof. I got as much of the stuff off as I could, but the roof is in really really bad shape - and just reinforced the idea that we need to get out of here and get a better house soon.

Yep, I used the rake to minimize the amount of walking
I had to do up there.

Contemplating whether I could go over the top to get to the
back - an idea I quickly dismissed when I stepped on a
really spongy spot.

Ladder: Fail. There's no way I'm getting up on the back
part without a taller ladder.

All of the rain has done wonders for the flowers....
....and the stray trees.
I didn't really realize how bad it had gotten until I got
all of the crap pulled out of there.

This flower bed wasn't *as* bad.

But it looks better now.

Today, The Dude and I took the boys out for a while. Daniel definitely needed new sneakers, so we headed there first. I ended up deciding to get Alex a new pair too. Here's the scary part - somehow, both boys managed to fully skip 2 shoe sizes at once. Daniel went from a 10 straight into a 13, and Alex went from a 1 to a 4. How does that happen? I mean, I know ..... they're growing boys, they grow up so fast, blah blah blah blah..... but seriously? That's some major foot growth. I found myself sitting on the floor in the middle of the store contemplating the fact that they are growing up entirely too fast.

After we did that, we did a few more things before we decided to do something fun.

I have no idea. None.

Apparently, Daniel had too much fun.

I have only two rules - don't reveal anyone's personal information, and be respectful. It's not difficult, honest. Now, go on and play.
