Fourth of July

I'm farming and I grow it

Zucchini and other vining plants


Cucumber, first one

Squash that Papa Tom planted

Corn, not looking so good

Broccoli, already cut off two heads

Tomatoes, I'm hoping they survive my novice

Also, if you haven't watched this video about farming it is hilarious

Sleeping at the hotel

This is how she gets her bath, too big for the kitchen sink!

Family visits

My family decided to visit us at different times.  My parents came first and stayed for a week.  Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures.  So when I get some from mom, I will make a new post.  But Anna and Peyton came to visit a week later.  We had a lot of fun with them; swimming, playing outside and hanging out.

She is going to be a great big sister to Addie

We went for a couple of walks

Rhys is almost as big

They love their cousies

So big

Swimming fun!

We also did some baking and got inspired by Food, Inc.  These are our homemade cheese crackers.  

Video that Mia shot of us coming back from Dodge City.  We left after dinner, gave the kids ice cream and then the car broke down a bit.

Mia made a carnival in Papa and Binga's backyard

Not sure he likes me, now he does!



May quickly flew by.  Here is what we did:
We went to Iowa for a week, and went garage saleing?.  Lots of walks and bike rides. Jenni and her kids came up and we enjoyed hot dog roasts at the park.

Thankfully, I have a wonderful tech savvy daughter that updates he blog frequently, so I am stealing a few of her posts. 

Then everyone came to our house for Memorial Weekend. We celebrated Binga's birthda Again another post from my amazing daughter.

We were busy finishing up school, and working on the garden.
