What's Up?

On the last day of school Lucas had a birthday party to attend.... as if there already wasn't enough going on. Being inside in a loud McDonald's Play Place wasn't exactly my idea of a good time, but he sure had fun.

Papa Doug came to visit Friday night. He was here from Oregon on his way to Council. Cody brought Nevaeh over and we had steaks on the BBQ.

And some plastic baseball in the driveway.

I love sitting by the fire.

There's been a lot of gardening going on at The White House, but progress is terribly slow. Olivia planted some carrots for me. 

Down the road two neighborhood boys were selling plants and honey sticks. I do not need any plants, but I did want to support his ambition so we got two tomato plants of a variety I don't have to put in Olivia's greenhouse. 

How we traveled to the sale. 

And how we got to a garage sale. 

The boys worked with their Dad some Sunday night (until the bugs got too bad) on the retaining wall. 

Emily took me on a 4-wheeler ride.

Monday they finished up their part minus a short side wall. Now I need to shovel dirt and pack rocks.

And this mess still waits for me. The snow is gone and most of the water is pumped out, but the mess is still there. Sure wish it wasn't as we've had 80* for several days and are supposed to have it all week. Then summer will be over... not really, but it probably won't be this nice again.

Looks like a fun time with grandpa.
You must be more than ready for the onset of warm weather.

All I can say is that your workers seem to be covering the retaining wall thing a lot quicker than ours! :-D hahaha

I know I've said this before but the fullness of your life always lifts me up.
