At first, we were supposed to have guests this weekend, but with their 3rd baby on the way they needed to get some things done before he got here. I miss our friends and hope to see them soon.Good thing they didn't come though, hubby ended up working most of the weekend. I, on the other hand took this opportunity to get ahead start on my summer cleaning. We cleaned, organized and decluttered: 2 bedrooms, 2 bookcases and the homeschool closet.

The kids and I also weeded the garden and replanted the watermelon and the cantalope. The garden is taking shape. We have planted cucumber, 21 tomato plants, all sorts of peppers, strawberries, garlic, corn, radishes, beets, onions, bush beans, watermelon, cantalope, jack be little pumpkins and Big Max pumpkins. oh, and 2 rows of raspberries. Sorry the picture isn't the best, a morning shot is better by far, I'll try to get one soon. Hope all enjoyed their weekend. Can't wait until next weekend when I get to see my Sis and her family...which reminds me...I need to go clean some more:)

Dad got off work early today so we headed for the hills. We saw lots of birds, and traces of wildlife. We found a place where animals had bedded down, even some cow bones. It was a short walk of 45 min and thankfully it was. Nap time was fast approaching. The kids were great, they looked for birds and snakes(didn't find any, thankfully). We will definitely be putting this hike on our list: DO AGAIN!!!

Yesterday we celebrated Mom and Dad's 50th anniversary. Lots of food and a beautiful cake

There were lots of friends and family that we haven't seen in a long time. It was great to see everyone.

Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad

O.K.we did it. Now what?
No we don't grow Tumbleweed's, we live in them. This last winter we had a wind storm and as I was talking to my sister on the phone, I counted 51 Tumbleweeds in our pasture. They were just tumbling along. They have since been gathered and burned.
