109/365: Iris is a Big Winner at Egg Hunt

Today, our community held their annual egg hunt sponsored by the local 4H group. Gareth and I went up before it started to help hide eggs.  Iris was in the 4-5 year old group, found the special prize egg, and won a special easter basket full of goodies.

 On our adventures yesterday, we stopped by the old astronomical observatory down the road from our house.

what a shame this is no longer in use.  How awesome it would be to have this in our neighborhood

 Thank goodness for warmer temperature!  I got the kids out of the house today.  They got lots of good fresh air to wear them out.  It is very much needed!

I like this one.  Gareth is my introspective boy.  

1 week post partum!

106/365: Visit with Jeremias

All the boys will be leaving the area tomorrow.  We saw them on Sunday at their hotel and they came to our home this evening for dinner.  They were able to see where Jeremias has been growing for the last several months.  They got a tour of our humble home and garden areas.  

I did NOT take this photograph.  However, it IS the best pic of the day, so I am using it!  :)  

Jeremias is ADORABLE and busy keeping his dads awake at night.   I love these guys and will miss them.

104/365: My First Garden Asparagus of the Season

Brian called me while I was in the hospital, recovering from delivery of Jeremias, excited to tell me that he found our first stalks up of asparagus under the plastic covered hoop houses.  His experiment to force them early worked!  Upon arriving home, I cooked them up.  Zane LOVES asparagus, so between Brian and Zane nibbling on this small portion, I just got teased with the wonderfulness of it all.  Yay for Spring!!!  More will be coming soon!  This is the 1st year that we expect a lot of asparagus to harvest.  Looking forward to seeing all our plants producing!
