Mothers Day and More

First off-I'm a slacker who's now playing catch up. Lots of blog fodder. Gobble it all up at once or savor it for a few days, but enjoy it. :)

Mothers day was nice and laid back. I got to share my special day with my most special man. Jeff's birthday happened to fall on moms day this year. We did cake and presents Saturday night. I fooled him into thinking I'd just gotten him some candy and a (rather boring looking) Frisbee-until he turned it over and got tickets he's been wanting. hehe.

(Don't you love how McKay's picking his nose? Such a boy!)

Sunday morning I tried to help Jeff and McKay make breakfast. I'm all for not helping with breakfast this one day a year, but I don't think you should have to do the cooking on your birthday either. McKay, however, had a different idea and told me I had to go back to bed. I went (to my bed) and started working on my mom's gift. McKay wandered in and said, "Hey! You are supposed to be laying down with the lights off, Mom!!" He then brought me his present he made at preschool, some hearts he colored and cut out at home, and some seashells.

After church we visited with my grandparents and then had a BBQ at my moms with my family after.


Also that weekend, we were able to get our garden started. Thanks in a HUGE way to my best-ever dad. He brought his tiller over, fertilizer, all the nutrients for the soil and some black plastic ground cover. He tilled and tilled some more, mixed the stuff in and then kept tilling. Then I raked it smooth. The ground was sooooo soft when he was done. He laid the plastic down and told us how to cut it for the different veggies. (Minimal weeds. I am SOOO excited!) Last night we got most of our veggies in: tomatoes, tomatillos, cilantro, onions, beans, peas, carrots, zucchini, and cucumber. Next week we'll do more cilantro, peppers, and pumpkins. Yummy!

I might have to steal some veggies from you. My garden isn't big enough to plant as much stuff as you have!

Looks like you guys had a good day! I forgot to wish Jeff happy birthday - a little distracted with Bryant's day. How big is your garden? It looks bigger than ours and I still need to plant and get a few things ready.

Looks like you had a great weekend! Ang, we just planted our first garden and I'm a little scared. If you have any helpful tips please share with me!
