The Garden

Here are some pictures of the garden. We planted back in early May and have really had fun watching everything grow...and eating fresh produce! The garden ended up being about twice the size we had originally planned- but it gave us room to plant A LOT of veggies: corn, okra, carrotts, squash, zuccini, green pepper, tomatoes, watermelon, pumkin, lettuce and beans! It got a little unruly the weeks we were out of town, but it's still growing things, so we're fine with it. I didn't want to bore you with pictures of everything, but I put up a few before and after pics.

We may have over done it with the beans...we'll be giving lots of these away.
This is our one and only watermelon, but it's coming along nicely!This is one of three squash plants...we've ate our weight in squash and zuccini this summer.

A Weekend With the Girls

The first weekend in June I got to meet up with Sonya and Ali in Nashville. It was so great to spend time with such close friends. They helped me enertain Gaines at the pool and at the zoo...then Will's mom took over with my buddy so I could have some much needed girl time. I just wish I could see these two more often.


It's been over a month since Charlie's been to our house...he has a full time nanny at camp this summer. Every couple weeks or so we go out to camp to visit him. He is the star of camp! He's only three, but you would think he owned the place. Every kid on camp knows him and chases him around, he's best friends with the life guards and well, everybody. It's pretty funny. These are some pictures we took the last day we had him. We took the boys over to Dupont (about 20 minutes from us). They had a blast!

Nana, Papa and GG

Back in May my parents and grandma came to visit for a few days. Gaines got to show my dad around who hadn't seen our house yet. He showed them all how he can drive his gator all by himself, our new garden, and walked them around downtown Hendersonville after filling his face with his favorite treat...chocolate ice cream!
