When we got back from California I noticed almost all of my garlic had sprouted Scapes.
I cut most of them off because I’ve read that you do that so all the plants energy goes to growing bigger bulbs.
Now I’ve just got to figure out how to eat them.
Lily thought it sounded fun to put this sticker on her face.
Lily’s buddies are set up for a picnic or eating at a restaurant. I can’t remember which.
My sister Jolene and her daughter Olivia at Olivia’s preschool graduation.
My Dad and Olivia at her graduation.
The graduate herself.
This picture is of my Grandparents; my Dad’s parents, my newborn sisters and myself. My Grandpa; Papaw passed away when I was in 7th grade. Mamaw passed away two weeks ago and she’s the reason we were in California last week.
We miss you both.
We got Lil a new bathing suit. I think it’s adorable.
There’s no pictures of Lil anymore without her doing some dramatic pose of one kind or another.
Lily set up a tea party for her new baby, Big Baby.
Lil loves these chopsticks and was super proud of herself for giving them shoes. I don’t normally let her play with her food, but come on, noodle shoes are a must.
We are making a last minute trip to CA for my grandmother’s funeral. This is about half the food we took with us.
More food art. I made a muffin with honey in Lil’s cream of wheat.
Lily improved it with the blueberries.
I am all caught up with my pictures and what’s been going on in our lives so all of these pictures are from over the last week. I’m sure excited and my goal is to keep caught up and on top of things. (I have a number of posts scheduled for the next few weeks)
Lily set up this scene the other day and when I asked what she was doing she told me she was taking pictures of her babies. I had to get in on the picture taking.
Lily and I went out and checked on our strawberries and other garden growth. These were the only strawberries that were ready to eat.
The stupid birds and ants got to these poor guys.
I love these flowers in the backyard.
We found these mushrooms in the backyard.
Lily broke out into a dance in the backyard. I really need to get this kid in dance class again.
I took this picture because Waldo was running to the store for asparagus and I wanted him to grab these bars for me. I’m putting it here because they are delicious.
Lily did some breakfast art on her own.
I walked into the bathroom the other day and saw this in the office. My little Gamer Duo.
And my Gamer Girl.
Lily is taking a water break during our bike ride the other day. On a side note, Lil loved riding her bike when we first got it and then one day she fell and wanted nothing more to do with the bike. This didn’t surprise us at all, I mean it’s logical. But we kept telling her that falling happens and we just have to try again. Waldo worked really hard taking her for short rides to get her confidence back and we are happy to report that this last bike ride she is 100% back and loving it. YAY!
Lil wanted to make a cardboard rocket so the other day when I was working late Waldo and Lily made this. Then when Waldo got tired of pushing Lil on the carpet in her rocket, she had the brilliant idea of Daddy pushing her in his office chair. It worked out great and they went back and forth between rooms with her yelling for astronauts to get out of her way.
I got Lil a Hello Kitty shower cap from Target. It was a big hit and super useful.
More breakfast art.
We went to the Boise Farmer’s Market last weekend and Lily got this awesome balloon turtle.
My Brother-in-Law is a beekeeper and sells local raw honey at the Farmer’s Market. This is his observation hive. He had some bees hatching while we were there, it was crazy to see.
More breakfast art. Lily loves this and it’s fun to do for her.
This is suppose to be Minnie, but her bow kept melting into the cream of wheat.
My lame attempt at a dinosaur paw.
And while I’m posting about food; I saw this hummus at Costco and when I was reading the label I couldn’t help but laugh and buy it. It’s made with love, what’s not to like?
Lily took this picture of some of the backyard flowers.
Lily with my Mother’s Day card. She wrote Happy Mother’s Day at the bottom of Waldo’s message all by herself. Waldo had to tell her how to spell it and help with the S, otherwise it was all Lil.
