Miscellany Monday

we had a seriously relaxing, wonderful, simple weekend. our garden beds are full of dirt and ready to be filled (in Southern Oregon the best time to plant is around Mother's Day). We went on walks, played outside, ate with friends and just kind of relaxed. 

 this kid exists to help Daddy in the yard. he leaps into our room at 6:30am declaring it's time to get the rakes and take care of the rocks in the backyard. He loves to sweep, weed, shovel, dig, rake and mow. He'd mow the lawn everyday if we let him. He is in heaven when he is outside getting his hands dirty with Daddy. I love it. 

this picture may look adorable and cute, but in reality they were totally fighting over the mower and screaming at one another. This happens to be a common occurrence in our home these days....

I read this book. Wow. Rocked my world. If you don't read any other book this year, read this. Promise it'll be worth your time. 

found this super cute and fun app, Elmo Calls....they were all totally amazed and it's the cutest thing for .99

Don't forget about Bloggers for Birth Kits. Read here if you missed it and see how you can help a Mom in need this Mother's Day!

In 3 days these little people turn 15 months.

 Crazy. And as of yesterday this little man is 3 months shy of turning 4. What?! 

And speaking of numbers and fun things, in 18 days we go on vacation with some friends. Oh yes I'm ready!

and and last but not least, this picture won a "favorite" spot over at The Paper Mama
The Paper Mama Photo Challenge

Happy Monday. Link up with my friend Carissa for some Miscellany today!
