August Already?

Where does the time go? The summer is already half over, the days are getting shorter, and the peas are coming to an end in my garden. I did harvest some pretty amazing magic purple beans that turn into green beans when you cook them - the kids should get a kick out of those! I even found a few edible strawberries in the patch (they haven't been doing well - this being their first year and all). Still to come: tomatoes and possibly corn - though the stalks look a little too thin to hold any!
As for family outings, we have mainly stayed in the neighborhood, but we did venture out on one camping trip - in Nana's motorhome! We had a great time and are even considering braving camping in a tent with two toddlers in tow...well, we'll see! We also spent a couple weeks at the pool - both kids loved their swimming lessons and can't wait to go back.

Sweet Ride

I was so sure I posted these photos already. I absolutely love my new bike. I even love the infant seat I bought to attach at the back to carry one of the kids. They love it too. In fact there was quite a fight to ride in it in the beginning and it really hasn't lost its popularity since! Of course, now that I have one, it makes it a bit harder to head out for a ride and tell the kids they can't come along! Mostly I love taking them with me anyways, so it isn't really a problem (except when I want to head downtown to shop for myself).
Jayden also has his own bike that he is getting very good at riding...I can't wait until he can ride fast enough to bike ride together!

Watering is a very serious job!

My veggie gardens are growing nicely...thanks to a very dedicated gardener! I have been known to have a bit of a black thumb in the past so it is good to have some assistance! This year I am starting to really get into gardening so I decided to plant a little of everything and see what grows. So far we have eaten one asparagus (it's the first year so mostly it just flowers), a few leaves of lettuce (enough to fill 4 hamburgers to be exact), and a tiny flower of broccoli, but there is lots growing so there is a lot to look forward to (and plenty to water).
