The Trees....
On Saturday of Labor Day weekend, we headed to the lake to see the Big Guy's parents. They currently rent lake property space, and by this time next year, they hope to have their home building complete on some property just down the road from where they are renting.

One of the things that his parents wanted to do was take their grandsons to the local nursery and buy trees for them to plant on the new property.

The boys went and picked out trees and came back where we all went down the road and set off to plant some trees.

Each of the boys got to pick out where they wanted their tree to be and then each of the boys had to help dig the hole.

First up was Super Z.

And then Mighty P was up next.

So, while it's sad to be leaving the farm--the only home that the Big Guy has ever known--this has been a great way to make this plot home.

It'll be so cool to see what those trees look like when those boys grow up into adults! They'll remember planting those roots there... literally... :)

I love that they planted trees together. That is wonderful!

I love this. And the best part about it is the fact that you took these pictures. You will be so happy that you did. What an incredible gift to the future. The trees and the pictures.

I completely understand the big guy's situation. It's happening to me too!! This is great though - somehow I need to find a way to plant trees at the senior housing facility!

What a great idea! The house we just sold had a tree in the front yard that my husband helped to plant when he was a boy. He practically goes ape S*** every few years when the utility company sends tree trimmers around to cut it back.
