After the harsh summer last year, our 7 year old Chinese Pastiche, which are known to be quite hardy, dropped all its leaves and died. Today we finally got around to going to Southwood to pick out a new tree to replace it. The big girls have always loved going there to ride the tricycles around while we shop. Even at 8 and 10, they still have a good time on them. (Sometimes Daddy wishes he could ride around with them instead of shopping!) Eva like being outside in the nice weather too. It was a little cool with the recent rains.
