3. Garden update: to tell you I am so happy that our garden isn’t a total flop this year is an understatement. It’s such a great feeling to eat your own vegetables! We had a ton of green beans ready to be picked when we came back from the shore and the boys had such a good time picking them all. It made my job easier too, haha. They don’t even care if they are cooked or not. They will open the fridge and grab a handful of them and just start munching away. Our zucchinis on the other hand aren’t looking too hot, but maybe we’ll master them next year. The boys also built this scarecrow/robot/tin man looking thing with my mom and made it all out of recycled products. I think he looks pretty good and is hopefully keeping the critters away.
4. Shark party: I can’t believe that little nugget will be three in a month. Seriously time is just flying. With everything going on in our lives we still want to have a great party for him but are going to keep it small with family and a few friends from his class. We decided to just have it at out our house. At this age, as fun as it is to go over the top for them, they really only care about running around with their friends and if there are cupcakes. And a bounce house. His one request is to have a bounce house, so we’re working on that. If you’re a parent or have small children in your family, then you probably know all about the baby shark song (doo doo, doo doo doo doo). Sorry if I just got it stuck in anyone’s head because, Lord help us. Well, he loves that song, and just lights up when it comes on. It only makes sense to have a shark party for him, but as he would say, a nice shark party not a scary one. I have been turning to where else, Pinterest (if we’re not following each other there let’s connect) for all the inspirational ideas and I think I have a good starting point.
