Vegetable Garden part 1

We spent yesterday afternoon cleaning out an area for a vegetable garden. We hadn't focused much on our back yard since we moved in and the weeds were out of control!! Since my in-laws own an organic produce nursery, they are coming out next week and bringing me everything I need to get my garden started. I can't wait!

The location:
Elliana helped test...errr...taste the soil to make sure it was good:
I loved that she loved getting dirty (btw...check out her blond hair!)
Noah was the foreman
No exaggeration, this entire green waste can was full of weeds!

San Diego

Last week we took a 3-day getaway to San Diego. It was wonderful! We did Sea World for two days (two half days) and got to spend time at the beach, walking around and just relaxing. The kids did awesome, and enjoyed every minute of our time away. It was so fun to begin to build memories that will last.

Checking out the penguinsSo tired!
Fun at the beach!
The view from the roof-top garden at our hotel...soooo pretty!

Easter Baskets (Elliana's eggs were filled with goldfish, gerber puffs and yogurt melts..she was thrilled :) )

Noah was so excited to get his basket:

Sissy loved hers too:

It was so hard to get them still and looking at the camera together, so I took what I could get:

Definitely not interested in posing for the camera
Singing on the way to church

SO excited to see daddy

My final attempt at a picture together
