A Sunday Afternoon Outside

Sunday was cold and blustery, but so sunny that we couldn't stay inside one minute longer.  After preparing for Monday's meals Joseph and I headed outside for an afternoon of cutting back dead flowers and playing on the sand pile.  The kids were outside in their "little woods" which was a total blessing because Joseph played with them and generally stayed nearby.  He usually goes in the opposite direction of me making it difficult to get anything done outside. 

After cleaning up the yard we hopped on the 4-wheeler to check out what Dad was doing.  The wind was so strong it actually made waves in the cranberry beds.  You can't tell much from the picture but the waves made the cranberries ripple up and down.  It was so cool.
Warren was raking the bottom Stevens bed.  Only two more to go, then the raking tractor can be put away.

I've always loved the way cranberries look when they are still on the vine, but underwater. 
Joseph enjoyed running back and forth along the dike while I snapped a ton of pictures.

He's a boy, can you tell?  He loves climbing on the 4-wheeler.

We had a glorious Sunday afternoon.
