Sweet Days of Summer

Another catch-up post … DH and I are enjoying the summer.  We had the kids out last week to celebrate 3 of the 4 birthdays (the twins are 23, and our oldest daughter will soon be 28 … Dang, someone around here is getting OLD!!!).  It was a fun night, and we’re so proud of …

A Hot Minute …

This catch-up game is tough – so many photos.  The garden is rocking, and I’m refraining from a full photo tour … (you’re welcome!)  But, I do need to share a few photos … My experiments are working (so far, anyway)!  My sweet potatoes finally grew some slips, and are now in their own pot …
