The view from my kitchen sink last week.

Full of yellow wildflowers and thistles. I love getting chubby handfuls of flowers from Nathanael (usually with very little stems...making it hard to put in a vase!) and Hadleigh loves to bring them too.

The neighborhood developers are in the process of putting in a road and getting more lots staked out behind us...so our view is/will be changing. But I am enjoying it day by day.

Soon, we will put a fence in the back and landscape a bit and--oh, the most important thing, to my little ones--the playground. We are excited about the yard...lots of room for the kiddos to play...to have some flowers (you know I'm going to try hydrangeas here!)...and enough room for an herb garden too, which has been my request for the past few years. Little by little. We are looking at buying some trees because you know we love our trees. The only thing missing will be mountains, but I'm getting used to that. (Not happy about it, but used to it.)

what a beautiful view! i love those wild flowers!! and you are living my dream...to have a window over the kitchen sink that looks out to the backyard, so as the kids get older, i can be cooking dinner or cleaning up the kitchen while keeping an eye on the kiddos!!
