There is something so magical about mother nature - it sooths a fussy baby or a tantrum-prone preschooler. Both my boys calm right down when we are outside. Today I got out a little tent I purchased at a yard sale for Grant. He's sucking on his thumb in this picture. He happily hung-out while Sean painted the house, I gardened, and Liam "helped" me. It's really nice when things come together and everyone can enjoy a peaceful afternoon together.
