Castle... complete with mote!

We were so excited to get our fence started and it looked like we were going to beat the secondary water. Gage and his dad got all the corner posts set on Wednesday night while I was at work. Thursday it snowed. This is what the yard looked like on Friday morning.
We got lots of ran and lots of very wet snow. It continued to rain/snow all weekend a true Utah swinter. We got a little more snow on Sunday morning then the rest of the day was beautiful. Monday was a perfect day and we enjoyed playing outside, protected on all side by our mote.
These were taken on Monday and they had already drained a lot from the day before. Remember I was worried about our little neighbor kids falling in one of our holes... now I get to worry about them falling in one and drowning.
Hopefully the clay that we dug through will hold up and we won't have to re-dig all the holes. If we do I guess it will be ok, because that tractor isn't going anywhere for a while. There is no way I'm letting it drive through my yard and make trenches in the soggy soil.
Today it is raining again so it looks like we will be enjoying our mote for a while longer. On the bright side I don't think anyone will feel like watering when the secondary water turns on, on the 15th.

I would be nervous about neighbor kids too. Hopefully this weather will finally clear up.. I am so sick of it. Maybe if it clears up we could all go to the park!
