The Garden is Thriving!

Well, it has been fun to watch over the past month. We are growing squash, lettuce, peppers, swiss chard, and peas. I hope to expand my repretoire in the future. Here are some pics. The kids have enjoyed seeing the progress everyday.

Saturday! I love Saturdays, when we aren't out of town. There is so much to be accomplished that has built up from the busy week and there are plenty of hours to do it. I started out this morning at 6 a.m. on a hike. Jodi and Cheryl and I headed out East to where Meridian Road dead ends. There is a beautiful hike that is the perfect amount of time. We got home at 8:30 just in time to get kids working and get the household in order. I cut up a huge bowl of strawberries for breakfast and couldn't believe how large some of them were. Do these grow this large naturally, I'm not sure. Oh well, because they are delicious. I am loving Spring time.

My kind of F.H.E.

Well, it was turning into one of those hum drum Monday nights until Jodi Lewis called. She told me to grab the kiddies and let's go to our favorite restaurant, Oreganoe's for Pizookies! At first , the practical side of me said, oh no, we can't, it's a school night, I've eaten good today, don't wanna ruin it etc. etc. blah blah blah excuses. Then the wild side of me threw caution to the wind and said " Oh yeah, let's do it!" The Arizona weather was perfect and the Lewis family owns a "couple" VWs. Jodi picked me up in the convertible bug and Dean took the rest of the family in the orange bus with a ragtop! Sweet! We had a fun drive to downtown Gilbert and indulged ourselves in the yummy pizookies! Good times. Thanks Lewis Family!
