Planting seeds...

Still loving the blossom in our garden you guys!

And I also love this moment every year...

Planting our vegetable patch with the boys!!!





If i'm honest with you guys, it never quite goes as smoothly as it looks in the pictures...

So sweet huh?

Lucas always walks, no runs over the soil where we just planted the seeds. And we all shout 'Lucas no!!!'...

They both want to use all the gardening tools and dig where I don't want them too. Like all over the garden...

Me and Tim both say 'wait and minute...' and 'hang on not yet' over and over.

Still I love it and the best part is that it ALWAYS ends with us spraying each other with the hose.

Every single time.

I mean it starts out pretty sensible...

But it quickly escalates to this...
I join in obviously...
And I win...

So much fun.

*sigh* I can't wait to see those first little shoots come through, probably in the wrong spot...

Thank you for that Lucas.

Speaking of wild children and nature I absolutely have to tell you about this children's book that I have completely fallen in love with. It's Wild by Emily Hughes
I bought it for Lucas for Easter. The artwork is so beautiful and the story so lovely....
Um Emily how can I draw like you?



I'm not being paid to promote this book. I just love it so much that I may actually buy one just for myself...

  1. Oh that book looks wonderful!

    I am so glad you got some seeds in the ground, always so much hope surrounds those first seeds and eventual sprouts peeking out from the ground. I always win the water fights around here too :)

    Happy gardening!

  3. Ack! What fun! It's inevitable that a boys, dirt, and garden hoses turns to absolute joyful chaos!

    I'll have to check out that book! The pictures remind me of the 1960's Disney books and animated cartoon style which I just love!

  8. I LOVE that last B&W photo. So glad you narrated your seed planting experience because the photos told a completely different story and I would have been madly envious. (Alas, your experience is just as crazy as mine.) Will have to check out that book, looks like a good one!
