review, renovation, and renegade squirrels

A few weeks ago I was contacted by EcoStore USA to review some of their products and write a review...and host a giveaway. I am in the midst of trying the products so the review will be coming soon. In the mean time I encourage you to visit the EcoStore USA web site and check out their products. It's pretty amazing!

This summer our back yard has undergone a serious renovation. It's been in the works for quite some time and we're almost done. The major project was getting a swing set for the girls. I must say, it was definitely worth the wait because they absolutely love it. Tim put the the whole thing together by himself...okay I handed him a few things here and there, but he did it...and it's wonderful.

Now, because there has been such a grand transformation of the back yard, the crazy squirrels that love to play back there are not very happy. What they have begun doing is sitting way up in the top of the neighbors oak tree and throwing acorns at the girls while they swing. Oh, I'm not crazy. You may think I am, but I'm not. When I was out there alone hanging the laundry on the clothesline I didn't hear a single acorn hit the ground or the play gym but as soon as the girls came out to play the acorns rained down on them. It's comical really, until that is, someone gets whacked on the top of the head with acorn pieces. Okay, even then it's still a little funny, but seriously, there are acorn everywhere! It's July for crying out loud! There shouldn't be that many acorns yet!

Stay tuned for the Eco Store USA product review and giveaway!

that is hysterical! Poor girls. When I went to check on John last night I moved his sippy cup and ended up whacking him on the head because I dropped it ... he was fine - didn't even wake up - just kind grunted and snored. I couldn't stop laughing - hubbie didn't think it was quite funny!
