Waiting for the Frost to End

We had a wonderful weekend here.  On Saturday we spent some time at a friend's birthday party at the local state park.  Samantha had a great time with her friends on the bounce house, eating cake, and walking the trails (including throwing sand in the river). 

Following the party, we went to the opening of a new brewery in town.  It was very busy and the tasting room is great.  However, Chris' beers taste better than what we tasted.

On Sunday, Chris spent some quality time in the garden with the tiller.  Now we just need to wait for the last frost to get the plants in the ground.

Speaking of plants, our seedlings are doing quite well in the sunroom for now.  We hope that they will prosper this year because our vegetable loving toddler can't wait to eat fresh from the garden items!

Even the strawberry plants are doing well.  Hopefully this year we'll get to eat some in addition to Samantha (she was a little strawberry thief last year!).

Joshua is growing like a weed.  He's already about 11 1/2 pounds at 3 weeks old.  He is such a good baby - and he doesn't mind his sister's rough treatment (too much anyway!).

 We think he's a very adorable little boy but we are a little biased!

Chris' parents were here this week and Samantha had so much fun with them.  One of the things we did was go to a "Mighty Machines" event at a local day care center.  They got to see a police cruiser, ambulance, fire truck, bucket truck, and snow plow.  It was hard getting a good picture of the kids but it was fun.

We got to go to the science center.  It was fun but Samantha didn't want to nap afterwards so it was a rough day.  It was very nice to have the help on a day like that!

Here's a picture of the kids with Nana and Pap. 

Even though there's still some rough handling, Samantha really does love her brother!

This week is expected to be rainy most of the time so maybe we'll get more accomplished upstairs (if we're not too sleep deprived!).
