The only pics that got downloaded to this computer...

The cousins. Evelyn was stuffing tons of popcorn in Sophia's mouth - it was hilarious because she just kept taking it!
My little goofball in the tub!

We started our first garden! Memorial day we went to a local nursery and bought some starter plants and seeds to grow our own vegetables. In retrospect, for the money we invested we could have bought an awful lot of veggies from the farmer's market. But, those don't come with all the fun and memories, right?!? Jason built the planter box in the back and it has: tomatoes, cucumbers, red peppers, onions, radishes, carrots, lettuce, and cilantro. I didn't calculate correctly and we bought WAY too many plants. So, I planted more peppers (we have peppers of every variety coming out of our ears :-), tomatoes, and the italian parsley up front. We'll have to post pictures - things are growing well! Of course it is the most fun to see the things we planted as seeds sprouting!!! I am probably most excited about the raspberry bush we planted in the front. I hope it survives the crummy soil up there... Notice the gloves! I don't like dirty fingernails! :-)

At the nursery telling us that the flowers are "pur-pul." Oh, and she is sporting her first ponytail!

Evelyn is totally into it! She was FILTHY by the end of the day!

Ooo...I just love gardening!! It's totally worth it, and the more you plant from seeds the cheaper and more "worth it" it is. Hope you'll show updates!
