The Garden!

When we moved into this house there was a large circular bed out in the back but there really wasn't anything in it so Lily and I had talked about putting in flowers.  Today was the day and the garden was started.  027My mom is an incredible motivator and with her help we got the 2 foot tall weeds out of it and got it ready for planting.  Lily's flower of choice are wave petunias and impatiens so in they went.  It was a lot of fun.  I didn't get any pictures of the actual planting portion as we were all dirty and muddy but the finished product is below.  The kids finished the afternoon by playing in the sprinkler in swimsuits and then in the house for a bath and an early dinner.  029 028








The last night with Grandma and Auntie Ruthie was sad but we made the best of it and had a fun time playing some games before calling it a night.002 008                                      









Oh, the skills that aunties teach.  Lily learned this from Ruthie 2 years ago and it hasn't stopped since!
