This weekend our not-so-baby boy turned 4 years old. He invited a couple of his best friends over to our house for a backyard splash bash. Despite a few raindrops, everyone seemed to have a great time. The birthday boy smashed a pinata in a couple of swings, we played pin the tail on the octopus, made visors at the craft table, and had a lot of fun soaking each other in our homemade dunk tank. Happy birthday G!

Daddy got to stay home with the boys a couple of weeks ago in a sort of delayed paternity leave. We did lots of fun things together. One day we tried to have a guy’s “spa day” including haircuts, nail trimming, hot towels on our faces, etc, but both boys lost interest after the haircuts. Collectively we decided playing outside was way more fun.
I left C inside for 2 minutes so I could hook up the pump on the rain barrel system. Leaving him with a pile of strawberries while he was sporting his white onsie was probably not the best idea.
Looking through the archives I found these gardening pictures from back in May. The G-Man cultivated an awesome garden this year, complete with corn, broccoli, pickles, peas, zucchini, tomatoes, and peppers. We’re already planning the garden layout for next year, including our 275 gallon rainwater watering system. Next year’s growing season can’t get here fast enough. If only there were vegetables we could grow in the snow.
Slowly but surely, we’ve actually been having a fairly nice spring here in Wisconsin. We even found a few days to sit out and have dinner on the back patio…G-Money in his short-sleeves, swimming trunks, and Sponge Bob camp chair seemed to provide a nice slice of life I’m glad we got captured. Momma had him laughing hysterically at her antics.
