Good morning! Today I am sharing a fun multigenerational reminiscent (I don’t even know if that is a word?) moment I had over the weekend as well as the DIY wooden planter project my dad and I completed last weekend featured today over at Tidy Mom.  Here is a sneak peek of our diy wooden planter. It’s even on wheels!

If you are not familiar with Tidy Mom, she is like a rockstar in blogland. I would love for you to come visit me over there where I am sharing the entire tutorial and final planter pictures. My inspiration for our planter was from a $498 Estate planter I found online and we made ours out of scrap wood! Oh yes, free!

Ok, now for my story from the weekend. I had a moment this weekend where I went back in time. As a kid, I always remember following my dad around the yard and getting rides in the wheel barrow. He was always outdoors either building additions on or home or cleaning up the yard. I can remember those moments like it was yesterday and this weekend, I watched my son do the same thing with my dad that I did as a kid. Our multigenerational family and living arrangement has brought back so many memories for me. Ironically, I was in my grandfather’s workshop, taking pictures of a wooden dolphine that he made and I was able to snap this picture of my dad and son cleaning up the yard.

Do you ever have moments like this where you remember things from when you were a kid and those feelings stick with you for a few minutes? This was one of those moments for me. It’s so strange how that happens. It was a fun Multigenerational moment that I wanted to share with you. I hope you all enjoy your day and please come visit me over at Tidy Mom, our planter tutorial would be a fabulous edition to our outdoor space.
