I had a lovely Mother’s Day and Quinn with little Morris posed here to show Mom’s cards waiting to be opened. My dear husband told me my gift was a pink dogwood tree and it was waiting outside in the garden to be planted. I was so happy since I have wanted to plant a pink dogwood for several years now. I invisioned it wrapped in burlap and tied up with string. As you can see, it is standing tall in a plastic bucket. I am certain that I am dating myself with a burlap image in my mind 🙂
Quinn is standing tall and very excited about planting the tree. Since we had all gathered on Mother’s Day, we decided to make the planting a family event.
Look, there is Daddy waving at us to show a perfect site for the little tree.
My son, Tyler carried the tree over to where Daddy was standing.
Quinn standing by to help with digging.
Quinn can see that the hole will have to be pretty big!
Daddy plucked up the post hole diggers and started to work.
Tyler also helped with the digging.
And so did my son Luke. With so many strong arms, digging the hole was very quick! Our dog Shelby supervised the entire operation.
Quinn was so excited and just had to look in the hole. He said “Wow, that sure is deep! Are there worms in there?”
Look Mom, it’s almost deeper than I am tall 🙂
Quinn wanted to stay in the hole and play.
Daddy finally convinces Quinn to jump from the hole and he plants the tree.
Quinn loves the new dogwood tree and so does Mom 🙂
