Lovin' Me a Little Springtime!

Saturday we had a wicked storm that had us all hiding in the basement. Funnel clouds were spotted not too far away from us but in 30 minutes, we were spotting sun rays shining down from our side window. We were saddened because we had a lot planned for that day... a garage sale (cancelled), baseball (cancelled), and the making of our new found hobby. Gardening. Also cancelled.

So on Sunday... The sun was a shining!

Our happy little green apple tree sporting a little sun too.

Everyone got in on the action. We are so fortunate to have Jon's dad here to help. He is really the brains behind this whole thing as we are so new to all of this. It was great to see Jon and him work the long hours to get this thing going. He has worked nonstop for two straight days and we love him for it.

Even someone with tiny little toes got into mischief. Then we found this...

After attempting to get him out of the garden multiple times, he then got into this...

and he wouldn't let go of it for an hour. Just sipping some diet coke every once in awhile and shaking the ice. He handles a cup like a pro! But after him trying to wrangle walking in the garden yet again, Jon finally had to corral him. (and yes, you can tell it is our third kid. Our first two think soda is poison.)

While all of that mess was going on, Kylie and Poppi were busy. Love how my girl gets dirty with ease. She refused to put her shoes on and since we were connecting with the earth and all, I didn't push it. Parenting at it's finest!

This will be my view from my deck. Won't this be a great lookout for my morning cup of coffee? When it is done, there will be a fence around it - mostly to keep the kids out! But of course we will tell them it is because of the deer and rabbits...

So we shall see about this new chapter in our life. I love the feeling of being responsible for our food. Hopefully we won't kill it all! And we won't see any of these...

Happy Spring!
