4th of july

What an amazing way to bring communities together. I love 4th of july. What other holiday brings everyone together in one place by cities? Tons of people pushing strollers, carrying chairs and hanging out. I enjoy everything about it. The BBQs, the friends, the fireworks, the amazing american songs and the bold colors- red, white and blue. Every time I hear the national anthe, I cry. Every time soldiers are asked to stand and be recognized, I get choked up with gratitude. Thank you soldiers for making us safe. I am proud to be an American, where I know I'm free!!!!

my garden/paint bday party

This was fun. Now I will have little pieces of my friends in my backyard garden. What could be better. All personalities came out on pots, bricks and rocks.

summer garden

I love to see things grow! Bethy and I had so much planting our garden and even more fun watching it come to fruition! Here's a little piece of what it looks like. Our squash are ready for picking and our beans are more than we can handle. I love picking fresh basil for a recipe. This is so much fun. Hopefully the water shortage won't effect it too much. They are regulating our water to 3 days a week! I pray it doesn't all die.
