Trees!

We recently picked up Estelle's tree, given to her by the great province of Quebec, upon proff of her birth. She received a tiny little black cherry tree, and we planted it in the yard where last year's apple tree used to be (which was gobbled up by bunnies over the winter)

It's about the same size as Estelle!


We're going to need more dirt in the wheelbarrow (no little girls this time)

Alice took this opportunity to take care of her own "birth tree"; a japanese lilac, which is growing quite nicely.

Are you sure that hole is big enough, dad?

Just a little more water...

(p.s. what do you think Alice will say later in life about us dressing her as a purple monster?)
