KEEPING THE GARDEN LATE JUNE, EARLY JULY




The end of June has been huge for our garden. We've used a lot of lettuce and cilantro. Our tomatoes (4 plants) are about to produce a lot of tomatoes... or so we think & hope. Our bean plants are doing well too! Will has been working hard keeping the weeds out. It's been a learning process, but super exciting too. We've been slow to plant things around the home, mainly because of the time of the year we moved in and other projects to tackle. But, we planted two hydrangea plants and 1 is doing well (pictures above) and the other will probably have to be moved---the plant loves shade and we aren't giving it enough!

PINTREST FOR THE WIN

When we were 'planning' our garden, I was looking around on Pinterest for some fun ideas. I came across this idea.  I loved it immediately. Well, the stars aligned or something like that, and when we were doing our kitchen reno, we had to get a new sink for various reasons. Will called to tell me this and I asked him if it was still safe to use and he told me yes. The plan was set.

Well, a few months later, we Will finally got around to putting something together. It came out awesome and we all love it! Since these pictures, we have painted the wood red because we had leftover paint from our door. :)





FATHER'S DAY WEEKEND 2016

A little late on posting this, but like I've stated on here many times, better late than never!

We really wanted to do something fun, so we planned a day in the city on Saturday. The beach + the zoo, what could be better? We don't make it to the city nearly enough, but G is at an age where he can really appreciate it and sorta knows what's going on more.

On the way there, already too far to turn around, I turned to Will and told him I had forgotten to grab the camera. Major bummer & both of our phones were very close to dying. But, we were able to snap a few pictures to remember the special day! We decided to drive since we would be able to park in one spot and walk to both locations. First we went to the beach. It was the perfect day, warm + the water felt so great!


                 







                

It took G a little bit to warm up to the sand and the water. He loved the sand a bit more, so we did our best attempts at building sand castles and letting him play with the different textures. The beach was so lovely & clean. There were lots of families early in the morning, which was nice as well! Already looking forward to our next trip.




   The Zoo is free to get in, so I guess I just wasn't expecting a whole lot? I'm not sure why. We were totally shocked. It's so beautiful, with big mature trees, and clean too! We were able to see all of the animals, and it seems G loves the sea lion area the most and the giraffe scared him, a lot. They sell beer and ice cream, what more could you want?

He actually fell asleep in the stroller walking to the car, that's how tired he was.

           


On Sunday we just relaxed around the house & grilled out. It was a beautiful weekend celebrating our favorite guy! We love you, Will! So thankful for the Dad you are to G and look forward to all the years I get to watch you being a Dad- it's so special.
