What We've Been Up To

So you won't be seeing a "What I Wore Wednesday" post from me today, because mostly I've been in my gardening grungies and it's not a pretty sight. Think 10 year old shorts, tanks with paint splotches, and worn out flip flops. 

Really, no one needs to see that.

While I've been digging in my yard, the kiddos have been in their glory...learning how to "poop" worms (disgusting), playing in their homemade playground, riding bikes, and digging in the dirt, and getting as dirty as humanly possible.

Did I ever mention that hubs made this awesome playground for them? From scratch. Out of stuff we had laying around the garage. I'll have to show you the details sometime.

Baby V is trying out the baby swing for the first time. And loving it!

Here is the slide that comes out of the tree. Hubs built a ladder up the side of the tree, and Jack is finally big enough to climb it. So fun!

I spray painted furniture for the porch. I can't wait until my roses are in full bloom! Sigh, I love springtime!

Hubs and I planted the tiny little garden last night...

Here's what's on the menu:

Lettuce, several varieties
Grape tomatoes
Italian Parsley
Green beans
Red potatoes
Bell peppers

It has been so much fun working outside, but this girl is sore and tired!

Am I getting old or what??


  1. You've been busy! What a fantastic playground. Can't believe how big V is!!

  2. oh, such wonderful "normal" days. what a blessing to be alive! can't wait to visit your home this Summer 'cause we're getting together right? Maybe June!? :) Congrats on your garden!!

  3. don't think i've commented before, but i've been reading for a while. LOVE your patio furniture - do you mind telling us where you got it? thanks!

  4. That playground looks amazing! How fun to have it built on the tree. Your garden will be on your table in no time :)

  5. I love the homemade jungle gym your husband made. I'm sure it is much more fun than the store bought variety. I think a post on that specifically would be interesting and inspiring...


I love hearing from you! Thanks for your comments! ~Aimee
