peeks of our summer

The way our summer was shaping up, I decided to try a pallet and container garden.  I did keep it small, so I won't get much, but it's something.
Me and the Mr.  I'm amazed at how time has deepened our love.  No matter what, there is no where I'd rather be, than right here. By his side.
After a drawn out winter, the pool is up and open for business.  The hot, humid weather makes the fresh, freezing cold well water quite refreshing. 
This is out of order, but our bean pallet is doing well.
Benjamin did a show at an old western town.  All the kids had a blast!

They had ropes set up near the chuck wagon.  The 4 boys spent (almost) the entire time roping the 'calves' they had set up.  And each other.  The girls tried their hand at it too.  Our family went back the following day, and Carolyn spent hours learning to crack the whip.   Her persistence paid off, as she was crackin' it by the end of the evening.

love your colorful pots!!
so, you like the pallet garden? I was thinking of trying it since our garden is a major flop this year

sounds like you need to move west where your kids can put their skills to use :)
