Grandparents & Gardens.

Our kids are so blessed with great grandparents on both sides! They love our kids so well and our girls feel at home with both of them (and really never want to leave either of their houses b/c it's so fun there....not to mention all of the fun treats and marshmallow cereal and Lily snack and chocolate and play time, etc, etc). These pictures are from a weekend my parents came to visit.

Also, it's garden time, which is a lot of fun and A LOT of work.
So far we have planted for the spring:
sugar snap peas
yellow and red onions
buttercrunch lettuce
red lettuce

We are excited about the season ahead. We'll plant for summer in a couple of weeks

Our newly planted garden, a couple of months ago.

Thinning (a.k.a throwing away) radish plants. Well, I am....everyone else is watching.

Piper's Perspective.

I love getting to see the world through these eyes of my kids. Sometimes I get down on the floor just to see what everything looks like from way down there. Phil swears he remembers the very first time he could see the top of the kitchen counter.

So Piper got a camera for Christmas and it has been so fun to see what she likes to take pictures of and what sticks out to her as "important" or "noteworthy".......we'll work on technique, framing the picture, lighting and getting the objects in focus some other time.

Us wasting energy. Oops.

I wish I could have put all of the faces of Daddy up. Very funny.

I swear she wasn't there for long by herself.

Best friend, Bunny.


Just tall enough to see the counter!


Caught. She's not supposed to be behind the tree.

And, of course, the self-portrait.

I'm excited to see how their perspectives change over the years.
