Tree in the hole, and the hole in the ground....

and the green grass grew all around, all around...

I was so proud of Scarlett for climbing this tree all by herself that I had to take 100 cell phone pictures of her standing in the exact same spot.

My girlfriend and I took our girls to the arboretum the other day and have since cursed ourselves for ever spending money on any other outing.

I have also declared that every Monday from here until she leaves me to fend for myself in Orange County solitude, will be considered Arboretum Mondays.  We will drink tea, have picnics, teach our girls about the beauty of nature, and chat peacefully in the sunshine about the ease of motherhood.

These Mondays are of course in my dreams.  Reality would look more like this...
"Hey girls, look at this really great spot to picnic"
Lay out blanket and food...
Edith and Scarlett simultaneously scream "mine" and then proceed to steal from each other, run in opposite directions and meet together only to smash food into each others hair.
Katie and I roll our eyes, take a bite of delicious juicy orange and a sip of tea, before realizing that one of our girls has slipped and fallen into the water and the other one is illegally picking flowers.  
Yes, this is the ease of motherhood at its finest.
