Garden part 2

Okay, so many of you know that we planted our first garden this year. Click Here to see a photo of the garden just after everything was planted. Fast forward a couple months and this is what you get:
Although it appears that the garden is a doing great......the pumpkins have over taken everything, the tomatoes have nothing to hold them up and there are weeds everywhere.

With that being said the kids and I have really been enjoying going to the garden to pick and eat OUR own vegetables. Shane is especially amazed by how those tiny little seeds grew into such yummy vegetables! He is known to come in with handfuls of beans at a time.

Last weekend we had a friend over that we haven't seen in years. Jacee is a friend of ours from Saint Louis Park. It was a lot of fun to spend the evening with her and her family! We also met at the beach the next day for some more fun. Here are some pictures of our families together:

Vanessa Rose

I just love these pictures of my only girl.

Papa's 85th birthday

This picture has been long over due. Here is a family photo of the extended family. I think everyone is here except Peter, Erin, Devin, and Jaden. (Sorry the picture quality is not so good. It looks a lot better if you click on the picture to enlarge it)

New job

For all of you who haven't heard, I started a new job. I am cleaning some local businesses.

My mom has been taking my three oldest kids to do something fun once a week. The first week they went to an outdoor water park. Last week they went to the movie theater to see Ice Age 3D. I think this week all of us are going to Valley Fair or the Wright County fair. So, thank you mom for loving on my kids!

Softball Champs

I know this is old news to most of you but I still think it deserves a post. The team Justin played softball with this year won all of their games except one (and that one they had to forfeit). So if you ask me I would say they were undefeated.
