Big Boys Toys

Just sometimes girls need what is commonly referred to as Big Boys Toys.  Since I seem to be in charge of the lawn mowing at my place I thought that I might just as well enjoy sitting while mowing instead of hand mowing for 3 1/2 hours ( Ok the first time I mowed all of that space it took closer to 4 1/2 hours).  Now I can happily hand mow the bits that need a catcher and around the trees and sit down and ride my way around the rest.  I should add just here that I flooded the mower right about the moment the photo was taken and was more than a little upset that THAT machine had let me down.

It is hard to believe just 4 months ago most of the part I call backyard was paddock.  The children love all the space there is to play in and I can't wait for it all to be easier to mow.
