Our Little Garden, part 4

Well it's been about a month since I updated you on the progress of our little garden. Things are growing nicely and we have even been able to eat a little of the spinach in salads with dinner. I can't wait until the other plants are producing.

The fruit trees are doing nicely also there are fruit on all of the trees (apple, lemon, orange, peach and grape). Hopefully we will be able to get a good harvest before the birds this year.

A Family Trip to the Zoo

This week my cousin S is in town with her family. They live back east so I don't get to see her often (actually this is the first time I met her daughter). A bunch of us got together to go to the zoo today and a great time was had by all. We couldn't have asked for nicer weather, it was a bit cool in the morning but by lunch time it was just right. Soon it is going to be too hot to go anymore (it is supposed to be 95 by Sunday).

The Cardboard Box

I think it is a classic question of parenthood, but here I'll ask it again. Why, when my kids have more toys than they even play with do they find a cardboard box so thrilling?

Be sure to notice the PILES of toys behind Alex. I think he played in here for at least a half an hour before his sister climbed in the box with him, took off her diaper and peed. Alex was very upset that we had to retire the box before he was ready.
