After many people commenting on how my blog hasn't been updated in forever, I finally decided to do something about it and 'git er done'. Since my last post was back on April 20th and since today is Memorial Day I figured now would be a great time to catch up on things.
My birthday came and went and it was pretty good -- alot of eating out due to all the freebies retaurant websites I signed up for. With some of the nice weather toward the end of April and first part of May got us all excited about getting the gardens ready. So we set out and worked in the fertilizer and broke up the ground. As we were doing this thought we found that one of our garden boxes had an infestation of ants. I HATE ANTS! So we jetted off to the Lowes and bought some of that dust to kill them and it won't kill us or the veggies. We planned the addition of some sprinklers to hit our newly added corner flower spot and some of the beds under the kitchen windows. Only problem was that we found stray sprinkler head. So after digging that up we found it wasn't connected to anything. So hopefully that is the last of the idiocy from the last guy who lived here and got the boot.
Our little trooper is growing like a weed. His current love is the park near our place with all the slides. So thanks to some of our neighbors we obtained a used little tykes slide (not more than knee high to me -- but to him still gets a "OOOOO and AHHHH") and small swingset, and then we bought a $5 blowup pool. HE LOVES THEM! The picture above is what happens when the neighbor boy left his shotty gun on the ground. He just ran up and grabbed it then charged.
