Autumn Break

Raising two teenage boys has been a challenge, but Mark and I are making it through.  Every now and then we need to take a break.  Most of the snow has melted away, so I thought it was a good opportunity for Mark and I to sneak in some couple time.  We went to Starbucks and right next door was a small park.  We sat on a wood bench and watched a muskrat swim across the small lake and then he took a turn and swam right in front of us.  As we gazed at the lake enjoying our alone time I snapped this picture below.  Just love the reflection on the water.

Next snow storm is due to hit on Wednesday (same day as last week).  With Brandon's help we were able to cut down the broken branch on the tree in the backyard.  It was a pretty daring task, but the guys got it done.  Then they got on the roof and cleaned out the gutters.  We also have our sprinkler system winterized, so we are ready for the snow.
