Memorial Day

Today we picked up a few new plants and pots for the backyard. We had so much fun playing in the dirt! We are so thankful for all the men and women serving in the armed forces protecting our beautiful country and allowing us to be with our family. Thank you soldiers past and present for all that you do.

Jackson has been hearing the word "no" a lot as he is into everything these days...

However I really try not to say no to things that are not dangerous, I think kids need to explore! If that means tasting the dirt then so be it. I think he learned pretty fast that dirt doesn't go in the mouth :) Talking about how we use dirt for plants!

After we tasted the dirt we found something really neat.... a lady bug was crawling all over my dress!!! Good Luck for us!

Here is the finished product! I love these plant containers and all the plants we picked out!

The purple fuzzy flowers are still going strong from our anniversary basket of flowers and I just added a few more to join it!

We are ordering bull rock to make new beds where the grass just won't grow on the sides of the fence.
What a fun day! Boys are sleeping and I'm about to take a nap myself!

Those first images are hilarious! W ate sand all last year when we took her to the beach. So weird how they'll put anything in their little mouths!

Just a heads up, I'm giving you an award tomorrow. :)

I love the pictures of your little garden helper. SO funny!! If they've got to learn the lesson, at least be there to document it, right?
