Well, first of all, my mother will not believe this...I've started to really get into gardening. Yes, ma. I know that I fought you tooth and nail all growing up when it came to weeding the garden, but as I have finally grown up, I decided that it just may be worthwhile. I have planted several vegetable plants in some pots, and recently I ventured into the hanging flower pot arena. Here are the fruits of my labors. No, I did grow these from seeds. I bought the plants and transferred them. They should grow and overflow from the basket eventually. I'll keep you updated.
These are my petunias.
And these are my pansies. Don't you love the duo of colors on the pansies!!
This is the wreath that I made...okay...I bought at Jo-Ann's. It is pretty funny because I had an autumn wreath hanging up until just the other day, and people (ahem, Kathy and Travis) kept making fun of me because autumn was over. So I just had to get a new one. When Travis got home from school, the first thing out of his mouth was, "I see you went shopping." Ha! Ha! That's what he gets for making me feel embarrassed and pressured to keep up with the seasons!! I hope you learned your lesson, Trav. (Actually, I hope he didn't. It was a great excuse!)
We went to a family fun center. Russell was so excited to go in the bumper boats, until it was actually time to get in them.
Russell's creepy bunny mask.
I love that cheesy grin!!
Coloring Easter eggs with Dad.
He got the motherload!
Notice how he is soothing himself with his thumb. He was a little nervous about the large, creepy bunny. He only gave him a hug for the candy. He'll do whatever he needs to do to get some candy.
What a cutie!!
We went on a little hike a week or so ago. It was just about 30 minutes from our apartment. This is Russell and I having a little snack.
I love this picture of my two sweet boys!!
