Long Spring

Our spring has been so long this year. It was in the 70's today. We moved here three years ago and it hit 106 in May. It was record breaking, but it still scared me to death. I'm not one for the heat. I think 80 degrees is my favorite daytime temperature.

Life is great right now. Hank has grown out of his fussy baby stage and is an explorer and entertains himself constantly. He can pull himself up on things and eats anything on the floor so it's upped my housekeeping efforts. Wyatt is the sweetest little boy. Every now and again if he's short on sleep and hungry he can be a pest, but in general he's so sweet and funny and smart.

I'm sure you have noticed the beautiful bike above. Well this is my new bike. I'm so excited! (I don't use exclamation points casually). This 3 speed beauty is such a smooth ride. I have to wait a week for it to come but I test drove one in another color. I'm selling my mountain bike, which has never been off the road with me riding it. This has the feel of my dear tricycle that I sold for my mountain bike, but it it so much nicer.

Behold the garden. The peas are ripe for picking; the tomatoes are one their way to hugeness and my garden gnome is keeping guard of my herbs with a bushy dill right to the side of him.

My darling boys.

This is my most recent project. When growing up I remember that my mom was always working on some project. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. I am in the middle of a quilt for our wall, but took a short detour to make this purse below. I saw a purse/tote at a store that I really liked. It was $55 and I thought, hmm, maybe I'll make one like it and see if it's the type of bag for me. So I used an old jacket that was in my goodwill pile. The jacket belonged to calder in high school and I inherited it and just decided to get rid of it, oh it's old.

My new bag went shopping at Sam's today and to the farmer's market. I think it's a great size. Today I had my wallet, a packet of 2 diapers and wipes, a granola bar, a small bottle of water and my sunglasses.

My Boys

I have the cutest boys in the world. Whenever I go to the grocery store or anywhere, people always comment on how cute they are. I couldn't agree more. I enjoy them so much. I love being their mom.

Here's Wyatt's church outfit last week. I think the shorts are a nice touch.

Sometimes I wonder if any of Hank's food gets in his mouth.

Wyatt has huge muscles and always like to show them off.

The garden is coming along well. We have radishes, romaine lettuce, spinach, all kinds of herbs and flowers. I love my flowers to much. A major reason I garden is to cut flowers and put them all over the house. The flowers here are in my bedroom. We are in the middle of our biggest strawberry crop yet. We even had home grown strawberries and angel food cake last night. I am so in to my garden!
