What We’ve Been Up To

April 27, 2011

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
Spinach
Grape tomatoes
Basil
Italian Parsley
Green beans
Red potatoes
Cucumbers
Bell peppers

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

Am I getting old or what??
