Katie's garden is growing! We have three big tomatoes growing and one new little addition, a green pepper! Katie has done a great job with checking on them every day. We are excited to make salsa! I've been collecting recipes to try.
We had a really nice Memorial Day weekend. We stayed at home, and tried a bunch of new healthy recipes. We also had one "unhealthy" meal of fried trout (from our awesome fisherman brother-in-law, Michael) and homemade hushpuppies, and I have to tell you...it was so incredibly delicious! One of our other favorite foods that we tried was grilling chicken with a dry rub on it...it was so good! We have always marinated in an oil based marinade, so this was a little healthier option for us.
I got the Slip-n-Slide out for the kids on Monday, and they loved it! Claire was kind enough to give me a funny faced pose while sitting in the water! This is the face she makes all of the time, and it totally cracks us up! She loved the water, and wasn't afraid to get right in the sprinkler part! Asher never did quite get the "sliding" part of it, but he sure had a good time playing in the water! Katie hurt her knee again with a bike wreck, so she didn't slide today...I think she felt like she was too big...which makes me sad. She is really growing up. She would rather just watch, and listen to her ipod. She still listens to Christian music (most of the time) and still loves to listen to "Adventures in Oddessy" every day, and lately she's been watching Disney channel shows a lot. The kids are all growing so fast, makes me feel the need to cherish each day!
