We went south and spent Friday night at my parents house. Ryan worked with my dad on some finishing touches of a remodeling project he has been working on. It looks amazing! My Dad has done a fabulous job with it makes me want to live there again now that it's all fixed up. ;)
We were fortunate enough to have my sister's family there for a few hours that evening too. The cousins had a great time playing. The next day Ryan took our teenagers and went over to the temple for baptisms.
Matt had found a bunch of family names and their youth group help get them all done. Now we have a whole stack of names to finish the work on. I think it's so fun and rewarding to do temple work for family.
Saturday evening my other sister's kids came over and again lots of fun cousin time was had. It's so fun to see what good friends the kids have become with their cousins. We went home that night and had a beautiful, peaceful Sunday.....that is after I spent my 2 hours in the nursery. ;)
Curt turns 12 this week and had his interview with Bishop. He's going to be ordained a deacon next Sunday....It's so crazy! The kids are growing so fast. I'm trying my best to just enjoy every moment.
That evening we went with Grandpa and Grandma Nelson to the cemetery to place flowers on family members graves. Then we came home and enjoyed the beautiful evening and I got excited about finishing planting our garden.
The next morning we were up bright and early and started planting. We planted over 30 tomato plants, 18 Cabbages, a whole bunch of pepper plants some pole beans and some more lettuces to go along with all the other things we planted last month.
I didn't take any pictures with my camera but I do now have an instagram account that I posted a few pictures of the garden too. You can follow me here! It's not much to look at right now but I hope and pray that the wind will be nice and that the garden will be beautiful and productive this year.
Yesterday we made some simple dairy free grilled cheese sandwiches and salad for dinner. After a long day of gardening we didn't want to make a huge mess of the kitchen . We have made these before but it's been years and I don't think I have shared how we make them. I'll have to share the recipe soon.
This week we will have Curt's birthday dinner and then he wants a little luncheon with family on Sunday after church....it will be another wonderful week. Be sure to note that even when I don't always post it there is always a salad and/or fresh veggies of some sort to go with dinner.
