Word On The Street that we are preg-o-nant. So for those of you that were wondering if it was true....IT IS TRUE! We are already looking forward to 2010 and the new baby that will come our way January 12!

Our Memorial Day Weekend

On Memorial Day Weekend we made the last minute decision to go down to Bryce Canyon National Park with our good friends/neighbors. And when I say last minute we made the decision and were packed up in less than 2 hours and on our way!
We arrived late in the night and it stopped raining long enough for us to get the tent set up. Then proceeded to rain off and on for the next day and night.
As you can see Zachary wasn't too happy about hiking in the rain. But he started to like it soon there after. He just wanted to get out and walk. I wasn't about to let that happen considering I had about 4 inches of thick canyon mud on the bottom of my shoes.

We hiked other areas including Moss Cave.
This is the view from Rainbow Ridge (I think that is what it was called).
'nother family pic...
This is Zachary smiling big cause he is out of the car.
He is so dang cute!

We had a blast and are itching to get back out again for more camping this summer before the restaurant opens and Joe is way busy again. We are thinking about Capital Reef next....

Just Like Daddy

When we go camping Joe has a head light that he wears at night sometimes. Zachary loves it! So much so that he wants to wear it more often than not. He insisted on wearing it while he ate his lunch yesterday. I just couldn't tell him no. He might get one of his own very soon. I think that Daddy is having trouble sharing.

A Bit Much?

So I have been reading just about every page of the book off to the left here...Square Foot Gardening. And thankfully my husband was paying attention to my interest in the book and helped me out. This is saying a LOT about Joe. He has a very strong dislike for weeding, gardening, pretty much any sort of yard work what-so-ever. But I came home from work one day a few weeks back to discover that he had built me a couple of boxes for the back yard. He later built some trellises and attached them to the back as well.
Last week we finally were home between the camping trips and trips to California long enough to get the garden going. So in the above picture we have planted...let's see if I can remember everything...watermelon, cantaloupe, sweet corn, 3 tomato plants, habanero pepper, red hot chili pepper, onions, beets, arugula, cilantro, orange carrots, purple carrots, and 2 sweet red bell pepper plants. I still have some room so I am debating on eggplant too.
Then here where we had our tiny garden last year we planted a pumpkin, yellow crock-necked squash, zucchini, and more yellow squash. So I am wondering....did we take on too much? And of course I asked that question out loud last week and Joe just looked at me and said, "We? I think you mean you." So when this garden starts producing food I'm going to take all the credit for it!

On a side note, Joe fixed the sprinkler system for both the back and front yards. We knew that we had it but could not figure out why the ancient system wasn't working. I was so PROUD of him! Our neighbor came out after Joe fixed it and stated that he had not seen the sprinklers on in about 7 years. Yipee!
