Hard Work and Geckos

We did a lot of yard work the other night.  This picture is of Amanda and Aliza throwing branches over the wall to the branch pile.  Aliza was kind enough to help us with that task... we weren't tall enough.

It's too hot to spend any considerable amount of time outside during the day, especially laboring over dirt and plants, so we resort to working in the yard by flood light.  It's a good chance to get some exercise and to be outside for more than a few minutes at a time.

Aliza loves going outside.  She also spent some time playing in the dirt, which was very cute.  But she really loves being outside because that's where the geckos live.  You can barely see it, but there's a gecko in her hand.

Oooo, now you can see it better.
I'm sorry to say, it didn't have a very long and happy life after that...

Have you introduced her to Grubby? She would love him. And he's much more durable than that poor Gecko...
