Springtime: Work or Play?

Both!!! Springtime means a garden at our house. For some it is work and others it is play.

Mimi and Gracie watch the progress. Mimi probably worked harder giving instructions than we did planting!

Demonstrator and Worker
Jimmy demonstrates how to plant the seeds and plants most of them.

As I said before, some play and some work. Guess what Caroline, Ben and Gracie are doing?

We had to wait forever for the garden spot to get dry enough to plant. Now it is finally planted with tomatoes, bell peppers, banana peppers, egg plant, purple hull peas, green beans and butter beans. Oh yeah, squash and zucchini. Probably more that I am forgetting. New problem, it is so wet we can't get in it to pull weeds and till between rows. I guess that is better than a drought!

We get spring fever with the pretty weather. We have visited different parks periodically with friends. We went to Fairpark for the first time with the Burleson's and had a great time. Here are some fun pictures.
Gracie and Sam enjoying the swings.

Round, and round and round go Kate, Lia, Caroline and Ben.
Gracie loves being outdoors.

Sweet Sam!! He is sooooo cute!!

And last but not least: ANTICIPATION

PARTICIPATION!!!! What fun!!!
Ryan tries to get Gracie to participate as Mimi watches in the background.

Way to go, Kim! at the race yesterday. You kept on going even though you were tired and it was hot. I admire you because you attempted the race; I wasn't even going to try.
