Life… Family, Gardening, Love

Posted · 12 Comments

Today, my baby boy turns 2

He is my VBAC victory.  My baby.  My sweet… sweet… Ezekiel.  We’ll be celebrating his birthday tomorrow so that his Abuela can be here for the festivities.

I wanted to take some time to share with you through photos my life over the past few weeks.  As any gardener and homesteader knows, Spring time is a busy, busy time.  I wanted to show you some of my gardening updates and life pictures before I leave for Spain next week!  One of my prayers is that while we are gone, my hubby will keep my garden and plants watered and tended.  Totally crossing my fingers here ๐Ÿ˜‰

Opening day of the farmers market was today.  I found a beautiful bunch of green garlic.  What a great edible centerpiece!

With the amazingly warm Spring weather that we have had my family has…

Played Ball

Built a hoop house



Helped mama plant Spring beds

Worked our plots at the Franklin Community Garden on Work Day

Played with new friends

Got excited for our strawberry patch that has GROWN!!
Watched seedlings grow in the Spring garden

Took pictures of brothers

Watched cousin Xavier excel at soccer!

Loved on my boys!

Tried and trying to perfect homemade Mexican chorizo

Ate mama’s failed attempts

Made Pizza

Went morel mushroom hunting with my sis

Yup, a busy past few weeks but so much fun!  The Spring garden has grown even more.  Will need to take some new pics soon and share!  Until then, thank you Jesus for my family and for this life that you have given me!
