embace the camera {Memorial Day weekend 2011}

Memorial Day weekend always marks the beginning of gardening season for us.

Every year grampa comes down to till our gardens. This year the girls were so cute watching him drive around on his tractor. They sure love their grampa and not just because he always brings them candy.

We spent just a little under $200 on seeds and plants this year. And thanks to our little farm stand, last years profits paid for this years seeds.

My little guy is like his daddy when it comes to planting. He takes his time and likes them evenly spaced out.

While this little girl is like her momma and fills those hills to the max.

While daddy kept planting, we took lots of long breaks snuggling under the trees with the buttercup flowers.

She was happy just hanging with her momma until she heard daddy’s tractor start.

And quickly threw a chick-fit when daddy left without giving her a ride.

But like always, daddy returned to give her a ride.

After the long weekend both gardens are planted and we are already seeing little plants poke up through the soil!

Of course we don’t want to forget the real meaning behind Memorial Day. Thanks to all that serve, have served or have lost their lives for us. You are the ones that allow us to live in such a beautiful country!

See you all tomorrow on Fat Quarter Friday for…

The Beach Comber Bag!

  6. Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people consider worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
