    Every year for my birthday, my twins (now 28) give me two hours of hard labor in the yard. Usually it's trimming dead tree branches, moving heavy rocks, anything heavy. They do all my heavy lifting.

    This year we're building trellis's - trelli? - for my summer veges. Got the wood ready. They'll be grateful not to break their backs this year!

    Sure would have been some interesting photos of 2 year olds trimming trees! :D But I figured the smiley got accidentally switched for a number.
    That's a great birthday present.... something you want, need and will cherish and use for years and years!

    Thanks all! Turned out to be a beautiful day, and the boys did a great job building me three trellis's for my vegies this year. Plus we had lots of fun. I am lucky to have such good kids!
