Our First Garden

in our neighborhood there is a huge garden and whoever wants can sign up for a plot. anyway, we decided to plant our own garden this year. yesterday derek rented a tiller from home depot, and we made our rows and planted strawberries, raspberries, tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, baby carrots, green and yellow squash, cantaloupe, and sugar snap peas. the girls were a huge help, and they loved digging and planting. katleyn only got to help for a little bit, because she and I had to leave to go to her soccer game. annie stayed with derek and helped him the whole time. they were up there for about 3 hours, and when she came home she was covered from head to toe in dirt!! i'm really excited to go up there with the girls every morning and let them pull weeds and water. hopefully the stuff we planted will grow!!! i guess that has to happen before i get too excited. oh, so we figured we were pretty safe planting on may 1st...well, we were wrong. it is supposed to snow tonight. derek just left to go buy plastic to cover all the plants! we were supposed to have a bad storm last night and derek kept asking if i thought the garden would be ok!! and he came home from work and changed so he could walk up there and check on it! he really loves home grown veggies...plus he worked his can off planting everything, so it would be sad if it got ruined. maybe the weather men have predicted all wrong, like usual, and it'll just rain tonight. pray for no snow. forget the garden...i think i'll go insane if i wake up to snow. HELLO...IT IS MAY.

K so I was looking at the ultrasound picture of the baby. It is hilarious that you can tell already that her mouth is just like your other girls'. You must only have one mouth mold between the two of you. Cute Kids!!

Looks like you guys are doing good. I hear you on the garden. I bought a bunch of raspberries and strawberries to plant too and I am not waiting to get more dirt for Ryan's parents backyard. I hope they don't die before I plant them. Good luck with yours.
