The garden is flourishing. We've already harvested our first round of radishes. They were delicious. If all goes well, we'll have two more rounds. We're eating lots of salads too with our early greens. The peach tree is working like crazy to produce some sweet fruit. The potatoes, carrots, kale, arugula are up. The tomatoes and cucumbers are planted. Now we just need some rain AND sun and we'll be on our way!
Benny likes to help water. He's becoming quite the little gardner. Other spring highlights include a trip to Edmonton, Alberta, to my brother's wedding. Benny looked like such a little man in his sweater vest. We had a wonderful time. Luke and Aman make a great couple.
This weekend we head to the great state of Iowa to visit Nate's family. After Memorial Day, summer officially begins. Happy sunny days!

It was gorgeous out yesterday, so we decide to take a walk to our local coffee shop, which also serves ice cream. Every once in awhile we'll treat Benny to a little kid's cup. It's a cheap way to get a nice walk in...
Anyway, Benny saw some older kids licking their ice cream off cones. We still get Benny a cup because we aren't sure if he's coordinated for a cup. He watched the older kids for awhile and then said, "That little guy over there is licking!" Yes, he used the words "little guy" to describe another kid. Hilarious. We promised that the next time we get ice cream, that he will get to lick too.

I was a bit disappointed with the quality of the writing. The whole book was rather repetitive. However, the book was interesting and heartwarming. And it reminded me about how lucky I am to have some amazing women in my life. Old friends who have experienced the ups and downs of early adulthood with me and matured with me into middle-age.
It was the perfect read for this moment. And I read it in less than two weeks! Up next: Reading Lolita in Tehran.

While I am very happy to have a fence, I also must report that the kitchen is nowhere close to being finished. We moved back in three weeks ago. The doors have been finished for at least two and a half weeks. And, we're still living with door-less cabinets. Read: Mama is slightly frustrated. I did attend a tiling class this weekend. We're going to pick out tile and glass door inserts this weekend. Perhaps the doors will be up by Friday, but I'm not holding my breath. If they are, I will most certainly post photos.
