Planting The Garden!

This week it was finally time, time to get out in the dirt and get our seeds planted!
It was beautiful day for being outside, and we had a lot of fun. 

My little, big helpers.

The freshly tilled garden, thanks to a wonderful father in law!

Lots of seeds.

My handy little garden bag thanks to a sweet Grandma.

Tomatoes and peppers from my thoughtful Mother.

Getting started with the peas.

Planting pumpkins.

And we finished it off with the potatoes.

3 Long straight (ish) :) rows.

My wonderful helper.

He did a super duper job of placing each potato in the hole with the pokey side up. :)

 And the finished product. Now the waiting starts, the kids are eager to see what all their work will produce!

When Andy's Not At Home...

Andy has been out riding with Josh a couple of times, and when he's gone I have a little shadow.
So today we baked a cheese cake, and had a great time doing it!

What We Have Been Waiting For!


Green grass

Flip flops

Bare feet

And picnics!

Forgotten sandwiches

And a much waited for sandbox

First time touching the grass

And the sand

But give me a shovel

A brother and a sister

Some sunshine, and I'm a happy, happy boy!

Cause Spring is finally here!!

Party Time!

The day of Brendan's birthday we went out for lunch then did some shopping and had ice cream, the kids all really enjoyed and slept really good that night! :)
The next day we had some friends over for supper and cake.

He was super excited when he saws the cake! :)

The day after we had cake we finally opened presents. :)

Opening gifts is so much fun!
