Irrigation & turtles

The kids love to help open the "flood gates" when it's irrigation time

One of the most anticipated events at our new home is irrigation day. During the summer months our back yard is flood irrigated once every 2 weeks. To me it looks like a big

dirty swamp land, but to the kids....adventures galore!! This week they decided to teach our

new turtle, Encanto, how to boogie board. I'm not sure he was enjoying it as much as they were.

So now do you live in a different place then when you first moved there? I can't even imagine flood the yard. Cinnamon and all that water sounds like my worst nightmare. We finally got new carpet this year (only took 7 years) I could just imagine trying to keep it free of muddy dog feet. Hey if turtle likes it, oh and the kids, I guess it's worth it.

Looks like fun! Guess that boogie boarding a few weeks ago left quite an impression...
