A Boy and His Backyard

"I wanna go outside, I wanna go outside, I wanna go OUTSIDE! Mama, I go outside, please?  PLEASE?  I get my boots."

I hear that excited ramble of words every day from my three year old, Toby.  He simply loves being outside.  And I simply love having a backyard for him to play in.

This afternoon as I was cleaning the house I let Toby out by himself (the yard is fully fenced in) and when I went to check on him he was having such a good time with his trucks that I had to grab my camera and sneak some pictures of my cute boy.

I am a very wealthy woman.  Rich with adorable boys!


  1. that is what i hear every morning noon and night too :) outside, outside, peeeeeease, outside!

    I love it! Great pics!

  2. Elisa always wants to play outside too. But we don't have a yard... and with a napping baby, it is sometimes hard to be able to take her out. She spends a fair amount of time on the porch... but it's not quite the same as a yard. A yard is the one thing that I long for more than anything... maybe someday!

  3. Hi Jeana.. You probably don't remember me but I went to Multnomah for one year and met you there..i read your blog sometimes (found it on Amanda's Gentemann's blog)... your family is beautiful! I recently saw your gorgeous birds nest necklaces and I would love to buy one for my mom for mothers day.. is it best to go to your etsy shop or just talk to you about it? Just wondering..hope you are doing good!

  4. Nikki, I do remember you! Brown hair...super cute...hung out with Amanda and Stephanie? Thank you for reading for my blog and for the compliments on my jewelry--I am blushing!

    I would love to make a nest necklace for you! Here's my email: You can let me know how many eggs and what color(s) and then I'll take a picture of the necklace and give it it's own etsy listing so you can see it before you purchase. Hope to hear from you soon!

  5. Carolyn, I hear you! Having a back yard has been one of the biggest blessings in this house. I hope you get one of your own someday! Maybe it will happen on your upcoming move!
