our garden

Here's a look at our garden this year...
we planted tomatoes, several kinds of peppers, squash & zucchini, basil, strawberries and Conall planted sunflowers!

These two have been my little helpers all summer!

1st day of 1st grade!

 Last Thursday all the boys (and this mama) were up extra early to take Declan to school!  First grade!  He was a bit nervous, but dad turned on some basketball and he was ready to go by the time we left:)  This year his teacher is Miss Bidmead and he's signed up for choir!  Along with basketball and soccer, which is going on now.  With the return of school we are back to earlier bedtimes and breakfasts in the car, but Declan loves school and we couldn't be happier! 
 Here he is with a couple of the guys from his class:)

Camping 2014

 This past weekend we headed over to Shades State Park for some camping!
Our friends, The Howay's, met up with us...they have two boys, Jack 6 and Sam 3.  All 5 blonde boys had an awesome time playing in the dirt, on the playground, roasting s'more's and being one with nature (by that, I mean peeing pretty much wherever!).  We woke up Saturday morning to some rain, not too much thankfully and it cleared up quickly, so we were able to go on a huge hike in the park.  The boys did amazing on the rugged trail...Galvan had it easy in the Ergo:)  The rest of our time there was perfect...great weather and friends!
