We have been spending pretty much all our spare time working on the back yard. Today I picked up some patio stones to set up an area for our BBQ. The last 2 weekends were spent building a box around the garden. Next step after the bbq area will the the walkway - or if the weather is still behaving planing the garden.
Here is a picture of our littlest helper pounding away with his hammer.
My seedlings are growing like mad - they are ready for the garden but the garden is not ready for them. C Monster loves watering them almost every morning for me. He is perticularly proud of teh edamame since he planted them himself.
On the weekend we visited Tara and her kids (Geoff's sister) C Monster had so much fun and I think B and S Monster also really enjoyed his visit. Tara and her family are so great they keep pretty much everything from their kids for us - she is the reason we almost do not have to buy any clothing. This weekend we got to take home a tricycle for C Monster - he loves it. This time we booked our next visit with them right away we often go almost 6 months without seeing each other - I can't let that happen again.
C Monster loves feeding the cats. We turned our head away from him for a minute and he had one dish packed to the brim; when I told him to put some in the other bowl - he did ; but it was the water bowl. Note the nice mess he also made... However if it was not for C Monster I think many days the cats would not eat as I am always forgetting to feed them. Every day when C Monster sees their bowls he says "Bo num num". Bo is one of our cats.
Looking Forward To
The peanut butter cupcakes I am baking for my moms group that is meeting at my house on Friday. If they turn out to be yummy I will post the recipe.
