Busy, busy!

It’s been a while since we updated last. The kids are napping

From Drop Box

so I’ll take a bit of time to update.

This week, we’ve found out what happens when you give a 2 year old a Hershey bar

We also did some canning, so Toby played with the pots and pans on the floor

Remember that pumpkin? It’s orange now!

We also took a few walks and Toby was entranced by this bird on the telephone wires.

Naomi enjoyed her first run-in with a toy on Monday.

Toby studied up for our Dungeons & Dragons campaign.

He goofed off by putting his sister’s socks on his hands, too. Strange little guy!

Toby also spent the whole day Wednesday with NO DIAPER! He’s getting very good at pottying.

Busy week and busy kids!

Our Garden

The garden has finally started to bear fruit! We picked about 2 dozen cucumbers yesterday, as well as a few squash. The patty-pans are doing nicely (and man, are they yummy on the grill!).

We even saw this little guy, growing through the fence. Yes, the cucumber is supposed to be white – we’ve only been growing heirlooms, and we’re having such a blast with such pretty vegetables. I’ll post a picture of our purple carrots later.

Our biggest surprise was volunteer watermelons in the compost! We went out there yesterday and realized that they weren’t watermelons, they’re……. can you guess?

That’s right! Pumpkins! I can’t wait for fall! Of course, I couldn’t wait for fall BEFORE because this weather has been so gross.

And now, because I know that’s why you’re here….. pics of the kids.

This is Toby last weekend, at the Team Sarcoma PA walk, sporting the team shirt and bracelet.
