I love the garden. And my kids do to. Sam tilled the big one in back and the S, J, and K and I worked in the front one. We have had lots of lettuce thanks to Kara's plant donation. The peas are looking quite nice I think the broccoli should do well. Everything else was planted a bit late, so we will have to wait and see on those. I do have three tomatoes with flowers on them so it shouldn't be long. I love to be outside when the weather is nice and I am grateful I have a big yard so that my little ones can run and play.

We got some small plastic bugs and dinosaurs and such at a garage sale and so I had the girls wash them before they played with them. Some of them were made of a soft material and got a bit messy. So I told them they were made of different stuff and maybe they weren't made to get wet. So Sinclaire mentioned that maybe they were made in China. Thanks mom! Ever since I told the girls that Oma won't buy lip gloss made in China they think that everything is made there.

After the party my kids got in the pool for the first time this summer.

We had such a great time on Tiny's birthday. Two is such a fun age and he loved opening his gifts. Mom and pop got him an aqua doodle mat and grandma got him lots of cute clothes and some trucks. He loves them, but I really can't tell who likes them more the girls or him. His cake turned out great and it was so fun to make. The girls helped and had such fun. I can't believe he is two. He is such a great little boy and so fun and cuddly. He has begun to say a lot of new words and he really likes to say that everything is yucky. Such a sweet boy.

1/2 t salt
1 T vanilla
1/2-3/4 cup oil
