It’s what I wanted….Really

Every year as Mother’s Day approaches, Buster and the girls start asking me over and over what I want for Mother’s Day. 

This year I told them I wanted a wheelbarrow.   I usually borrow my Neighbor Steves.   Neighbor Steve may be moving to Connecticut so I needed my own.

This was not their idea of a Mother’s Day gift,  but they went along with it and I am so happy to have it.  It is perfect to move my compost from my compost pile to the flower beds and garden beds.  So I’m thrilled.

I’m so thankful for these two girls.  I love them more than they will ever know.

They are so big now I can’t carry them in my arms so….

Oh Joy---what a special Mother's Day gift... It's not a 'baby carriage'--but can be a big girl carriage!!!!! The girls are growing up so fast... Goodness!!!! And they are both so pretty...

Do you have some bibbed overalls to wear when you push your new wheel barrow around the yard??? ha ha

Hugs,
Betsy

Oh now that's a great idea! I should have something that does that.

Oh wait, I do. I call mine a pram, but I think your girls look more comfortable in the wheelbarrow! More fun, anyway!!
