I Need a Vacation From Our Vacation!

Have you ever felt that way after a “vacation”? Like you need a vacation from your vacation? I sure feel that way this week.┬áThis pregnancy I have been much more tired than I was last time and it really hit me hard while we were gone.

So, where did we go? We went to Beavers Bend with all of my family. Well everyone but my Dad who ran a pet hotel for everyone while we were gone! Now that guy needs a vacation!

We did all the fun things that you can imagine doing in a cabin. There was marshmallow roasting, boating, bugs. Lots and lots of bugs. Haha.

We even went to a petting zoo! Where they had every kind of animal imaginable. Turns out Elliott is not the biggest chicken fan. Boy is that a disappointment to his mother that wants chickens soooooo bad!

That’s camping/forgot the shampoo hair I’m experiencing there. Here’s a tip, if you have curly hair, DO NOT forget your shampoo and conditioner and then take pictures all over the place.

I think that Flint had the most fun at the petting zoo.

We had so much fun but will all the little kids camping is much more for them than it is for the adults. I felt like we spent the whole time making sure no one died!

I have spent the rest of this week catching back up from being gone. There should be a lot more posts here in the next week. I have so many projects going and I have my nesting hormones on high. I can’t wait to share everything going on. Plus the garden has grown like crazy, crazy out of control. So, many more posts on that soon.

In the Kitchen

This has been a bit of a crazy week and I have so many exciting things to post about but we will just start out with a little bit of whats been going on in the kitchen this week.

Some really delicious dinners happened this week with some great greens from our garden! All of these delicious meals where from the last week I have changed us a clean food diet for the next week so I will be posting a lot of food pictures in an attempt to keep myself motivated and in check.

Look for tons of garden updates this week and all kinds of homemade goodies from the kitchen.

Gardening

Well Hello There!

I’ve started finding some little friends in my garden.

Actually this first guy is quite a large little friend. He has been hanging out in my lettuce leaves for about a week now. He greets me every morning when I go out to pick our greens for the day. I’m already dreading the day that I have to pull up all the remaining lettuce and he looses his happy little home. I can only hope that when that day comes the other plants in the adjacent beds have become large enough to offer him a welcoming new home.

I’m not actually sure what this next little guy is. I know when we were kids we called them inch worms. Where did he come from and what will he become. I’m assuming this is just a middle stage of his development. As cute as he is I have had to give up a portion of my basil and spinach to his hungry little belly. Not ideal but he and his buddies aren’t so numerous as to be a problem…yet. I’m going to look into organic and ethical ways to deter these little guys from eliminating my basil.
