After some hard work we are now beginning to experience the harvest! We have all decided it is quite a joy to pick your own fruits and veggies from your very own garden. I hadn't realized it would feel quite so rewarding!
Joey, Joey- working hard- how does your garden grow?
With squash, lettuce, cucumbers, zuccini,
g beans and okra all in a row.
Don't forget the watermelon and tomatoes- for when you will ripen we just don't know.
for all your gardeners out there- yes we are aware some of our first harvest got a bit too BIG! we've learned since that you have to check every day cause these babies grow fast!

today was braxton's treasure hunt birthday blast! i have given many a party in my days as a mom and it ranks at the top. (actually briley's 5th bday princess dress up party and brax's 5th treasure hunt are tied for the top. 5 is a great party day for us- i must keep up the trend with the up and coming siblings!)
we started with batman tatoos and pinata full of candy...
next we divided into 3 teams (special thanks to uncle nate and mr rocky for guiding teams) and using the specially "made by mom" treasure maps went hunting the trails of our woods for loot... the below 2 pics are of brax's team led by daddy, of course, who did a most incredible job! thanks daddy!

the long awaited batman belt. thanks aunt tiff for pulling thru (by the way- figuring out how it worked was quite a challenge- but now we are professional)!
we are 0-2 on playing in the bicentennial mall fountains. yep- just like wally world- kids running and smiling and SCREECH- no water- electrical issues.
we scrambled and ended up at a park with a nature center, hiking trails, a creek, and a shady picnic spot. then a cooling off trip to sonic for slushes all around.
the above pic shows one motley crew.
the day continues with dinner at no other than chuck e cheese
even though we had a slight glitch in our day with the fountain issue- brax claims tonight his birthday was totally awesome.
thank you God for braxton- our true miracle baby- from such a tumultuous beginning God has brought such joy and blessing!
