Memorial Day Weekend

We had a great long weekend. Saturday we had "nastics" (gymnastics) and then we went to the farmers market and got veggie plants for our garden. Then we headed to the local park and walked about 2 miles! Then everyone came back here for a great playdate.

On Sunday we got that garden ready and planted. This is my first time with a veggie garden of my own and I am really looking forward to it. I have also been busy working in our big rock garden. It needs SO much weeding.

On Monday, Memorial Day we went to the parade in town and then went to the Heenan's for a picnic. I was another beautiful day!

Allie and Jack's New Swing Set

For Allie and Jack's birthday's Grammy and Papa very generously got them a swing set. Allie LOVES it and Jack does too. I see lots of fun playing outside in our future!

Take Your Child To Work Day

These pictures are from a few weeks ago, when it was take your child to work day. Allie came with me to school and she loved being the "teacher"!

Daffodil Days

Every year since Allie was born we have gone to the Laurel Ridge Narcissus Plantings in Northfield, just outside Litchfield. These plantings are AMAZING!! I have never seen so many daffodils and Narcissus planted in one place.

I always love this day; it feels like spring has finally arrived. This year we went late, the last Saturday in April and the weather was beautiful!

Each year we get the most amazing photo's. I have to admit that it was a bit harder this year, trying to get both kiddos to smile and cooperate at the same time for photos. Oh well, we had fun and got some good pictures too!

I hope that you enjoyed our day at the Daffodils as much as we did!
