we took advantage of the gorgeous weather earlier this week to plant both our vegetable garden, and fill our planters with annuals.

both kiddos were really interested in helping out!

blaire loved the dirt!

and hendrix loved the watering can.

my front porch looks very cheery and springy......

and i am optimistic that growing their own vegetables with be a healthy and productive experience for the kiddos on all kinds of levels.

grow plants, grow!

and please stay away bunnies.......

park fun

my kids love the wagon.

they both enjoy the ride.
and more recently, hendrix likes to pull blaire in it.

she loves it.

heck, i love it.  

how awesome is it to let them do all the work and i just follow along behind taken photos of their cuteness on the way to the park?!?  ;)

our house's location right in the heart of downtown has us within walking distance of several great parks, bandshell park being one of them.

the kids had a blast running around and hollering up there, and it was entertaining to watch.

oh the sweet energy of youth.

gotta love it!

skinned knees, snotty noses, and all......

soccer is in his blood

my husband, brothers, sister and sister-in-law have all played and highly excelled in the sport of soccer.

my son has been spectating the sport since he was an infant.

 and now,

my three-year old has started his very own organized soccer program.

he is so excited about going to soccer practice with his daddy, and tonight when we were playing at the park, he told me he wanted to show me his tricks.


it is so fun to see both of them full of such enthusiasm and passion!
