What a Difference a Day Makes!

Saturday was a very busy day for us. We are attempting a garden this year with all of the space we have. After figuring out how Justin's Dad's tiller worked without slipping out of gear, things went pretty smoothly. Here are a few pictures to tell you what we did.
Justin and Cooper Tilled the garden spot while the kids and I played and worked in the back yard. I got a spot cleared out for an herb garden behind the garage and the kids played like crazy. It was a little cold, but they still enjoyed it.
Here are the cuties on a blanket playing with some toys. Bo did so well. We were outside for a good 4 hours and he didn't start crying until the last 1/2 hour or so. What a trooper!
Here's a cute picture of my boys. Aren't they handsome?
Marianne and Allison loved to play in the back of the truck. They wanted to help load stuff in to go to the dump. What great helpers!
After all of our hard work and play, Justin cooked us some hot dogs and brats and we had a picnic on the floor inside. It was getting a little cold because the wind was blowing. Thanks Daddy!

So, here is the finished product of our hard work in the garden. If you look closely, you can see the row of onions that we planted. If everything goes well, we will have everything we need for salsa. Wish us luck!

Inside picnics are the best! We worked in our yard Saturday too and it was a little chilly. James didn't last too long... Your garden looks nice. We are still waiting for the snow to melt off of ours, its getting close (hopefully it doesn't snow again...)
