I'm getting ready for vacation. We leave Thursday (my birthday). I'm dreading the packing and I have one more hotel night to book. We are going to visit family in NY. I'll keep you posted.

Not a whole lot is happening. I thought I'd post a few things from today. A friend of mine from church kindly chastised me for not keeping up with my blog. Lately my mind is racing with all the things I need to get done and it's a lot easier to post a one sentence Facebook status than it is to write a blog post.

I picked 1 pound of cherry tomatoes from our garden today. It's been really hot lately which really makes me not want to step outside. My poor garden is suffering. But these little babies were ready and there are more waiting. I told my neighbor we will be leaving and that she could pick whatever she wanted. She was very excited. I think she is more excited to pick my Zinnia than my vegetables.

Jason's dinner of baby carrots, self-poured Caesar dressing, and bread and butter. I took a picture because I loved how he had his carrots all lined up.

This is his dinner two minutes after I took the picture. He ate most of the carrots.

I went shopping tonight. Wendy made me a list. She really wanted to make sure I didn't forget to buy new crayons. She is going to be thrilled in the morning to see 98 new ones waiting for her. 

That's all for tonight. It's painful for me to leave out things that I want to blog about, but that will have to suffice for today.

Oh, but one important thing before I forget......George is WALKING!! He's been taking steps, but walking is officially his preferred mode of getting from point A to point B as of Saturday, June 25. I have to document it here on my blog so I can fill in the baby book in 10 years or never. (Wendy is my last one that I bought a baby book for and I'm pretty sure it's blank.) So sad :(


  1. Melinda, your FB posts most times leaves me wanting more.keep the blog going so I can drop in every now and again. - av

  2. Lol, I am grateful for your baby book confession. My stepmom bought us baby books for my kids for Christmas because she was shocked I didn't have any. Blogs are the new baby books, I say! Have fun on your vacation and birthday!

  3. It's great to read of all (some) of what is going on with you. It would be great to see you while you're in NY. Safe travels Melinda (and the crew).
