This post is picture heavy cause I'm cramming in almost 2 weeks worth of goings ons...
During the record breaking March heat wave we had here in MO, with temps up in the mid 80s for almost a week straight, it was hard to keep cool. DH was fussing about needing to get the girls RV moved so that they were in the shade until I reminded him that because it's still just March there IS no shade!!! Thankfully the leaves are growing pretty quickly now.
Trying to stay cool and not run the air conditioner too much.
Somebody had their 8th birthday!!! Son #6 had been counting down for weeks!! He was so happy when his special day rolled around!!!
He doesn't even eat cake!!! But we sure liked it!!
This was his favorite birthday present.
OK, his 2 favorite presents... the bike and that Daughter #2 was here.
She helped him learn to ride it (it's been a year since
we've had a bike his size around--and he wasn't too interested then).
He said she's the best teacher ever!! :-)
That's my boy!!
Our first snake of the year!! DH said that he was every bit of 4 feet long... and probably more.
Beautiful Black Rat Snake
We had a few storms roll through. I love storms!!
Before the storm!
Here it comes!
After the storm!
I decided to go ahead and plant my Moonshadow Hyacinth beans early. They grow fast!! If colder weather comes along I can just cover them up.
They will climb the string trellis I made for them.
This is just from the first day they came up.
It took about 7 or 8 days for them to germinate.
Last year you could practically watch them grow!!
Now this is the life, huh?
What a sweet shot of the moon and Venus (taken last night 3/26/2012).
