family and fun

We have had such a good time with all of the family visits this summer. Here are a few pictures.

It has been a lot of fun having Liza as my shadow in the garden. She comes out to help me water each time. I have loved sharing that time with her.

We also enjoyed visiting the gardens at Thanksgiving Point with Tammye, Candy and Brynna. We spent 4 hours there and it just flew by. Tammye took these fantastic pictures for us. None of us had been there before so we slowly took it all in. It was one of those rare, perfect days that you love to look back on later.

Bon Voyage!

I have been so behind on posting photos from all of the events of this summer. Here are some from the barbeque for Carl before he left for Virginia. There were so many great ones of everyone. Sorry I can only post a few!

Good things come to those who wait (for their mom to visit...)

I must give a little shout out to my mom. She swoops into town, sprinkles her fairy dust over my house, throws in a good measure of elbow grease, and viola! my plants are thriving and happy.

Thanks to her I have my trellis' up in my garden, my herbs planted in pots, and I even got a night out with Brad! Amazing. She is truly able to accomplish more in one hour than most of us accomplish in a week. And, having seen her recently use both a pick ax and a shovel, I'm pretty sure she can still take me in a fair fight.

What would we do without our mothers? THANK YOU MOM!
