Garden Update

Just in time for summer James finally finished our garden. He definitely works at his own pace but when he finishes it's awesome! Everything he does always turns out perfect. I have to admit that this project did turn out to be a lot more work than we originally thought. Our ground is solid rock so every yard project pretty much sucks. I guess we should have expected that since we live on a hill. We traded in most of our smaller wooden boxes for taller cinder block raised beds and I love it!! This is the first year that we are trying our hand at an herb garden so keep your fingers crossed.

Texas 2009

Last week we went on our first vacation with the boys and the boys did great on the airplane. We decided to fly down to Texas to play in the sun and hang out with family. Luckily we have some really great family that didn't mind us taking over their house and their lives for the weekend.

We were only there four days but we had a ton of fun. We got plenty of pool time and sunshine the first two days. My Uncle even took us up in his plane and we got to do barrel rolls with him. Our third day there we visited the Fortworth Stock yards which have been turned into a tourist area. Our last full day James got to visit both Cabella's and the Texas Motor Speedway. We got plenty of BBQs in and even some great Mexican food. It was also fun to see all the cousins before they get too big.

Good weather, good food, and great company.......we would love to go back someday!

My Boys

This was our first mother's day at home with the boys. On the way to my parents house for brunch we stopped on the side of the road for a quick photo op. Spring is in the air! The boys are 11 months old now and have changed so much in the last 2 weeks. Everything seems to be coming together for them and it is so fun to watch them laugh and play together.
