garden hose...

Lately I have taken an increased interest in our lawn. Since we had the pool put in a few years ago our sprinkler system has never been the same. I think the pool builders broke a few lines in the process & financially we can not afford to fix it especially now AFTER quadruplets! SO me & the good ol' garden hose is now our sprinkler system. YAY me! LOL! I have been known to frequent the yard in my PJ's carrying the hose & a hand held sprinkler attempting to accomplish the job. Hopefully by Hurricane Season we will be good to go! haha! I am sure that when our neighbors peek outside they think I look like one BIG fool! I do not mind if it does the job & the grass has been staying green! Woo hoo! The worst part about having a "crunchy" lawn is that ants seem to like to live there. I despise ants! So I am on a mission to exterminate them all! Don't want any ant bites on my babies! =) It is even funnier when our munchkins follow me out & decide to play with the hose. They don't care about the grass or the ants they just want to get wet! They would start flock to the hose like it was one BIG snake. Yes we have outdoorsy children! They LOVE snakes, lizards, ants, bugs, etc. They will try to grab the hose & then say "hands"? & then put their hands out as if they needed their hands washed. You see we live on a dirt road & there is a TON of dirt they seem to LOVE to get into! Well I bought it! Then they would then run into the stream of water to get TOTALLY soaked giggling all the way. At first they succeeded in their mission to pull one over on me but then I caught on to them! Now I make sure their hands are the ONLY thing in the flow of the water OR they are in their bathing suits & then I drench them! We had such a fun afternoon & it started out with just one...
