March Outdoor Fun

This Month has been gorgeous outside and we have enjoyed every minute of it… We have been working on our backyard making it fun for the kids and adding a garden. We have been talking about doing it every year but this year we followed through and created it in time. I am usually far behind in planting to late but this year I broke that streak. We are excited about it.

So we moved the trampoline back a little bit and created a spot for our little garden.

We started with using cinderblocks and then went from there… We could’ve made it bigger but I am a little intimidated by growing a garden.. I’m afraid I will kill everything so I figure we’ll start off small and see how we do… baby steps!

   Then we built a little shade for the plants… the sun can be a little intense in the summer time so maybe it will help a tiny bit… we just used old PVC pipes we had in our shed.. Kiel did a good job putting that together. and then we went to a nursery and bought some plants!! We have 2 different types of tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers, celery, onions and of course my Favorites Bell Peppers!! I don’t know if i gave everything enough room but we’ll see how it all works out… and then the over flow of plants went into the pots! We think it’s cute and I really hope we get some fresh produce from it! I would be happy if I got 1-2 things from it! I really want to succeed especially now that the kids are old enough to help out. It’s been fun. Thank you Kiel!!

Chloe helping Kiel mow the grass.. of course in her Hello Kitty skirt and shirt… She hates me whenever I make her wear something other than a Skirt…. My little DIVA, Yikes.

We took the kids to Connor’s school for their Spring Festival Fundraiser. The kids had a blast on all the bouncy houses and slides and Chloe loved riding the ponies!! She was in heaven. It was a fun night.

Connor’s last game of the season was last weekend. This season he was the Tigers. I am happy that he is improving and enjoying being apart of a team. It’s good for him and he really enjoys it.. I don’t think he’s as… uh…… cutthroat as his momma… but maybe someday he’ll get there. :)
