Memorial Weekend

I love when there is a long weekend because we get an extra day. It almost always seems like I am so incredibly busy with chores and errands Saturday and Sunday that it just blows by before we can actually relax together as a family. So tomorrow we are going to grill out and play in the yard. Today the boys got a chance to play in their pool and they had a blast.
I am also excited that my garden is growing so well. We will be having spinach, lettuce, strawberries, tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, carrots, squash and green beans this year! I must admit I got a little carried away this year, simply because I was determined to actually grow some things that I wanted to eat. I made a my raised bed smaller and that has made all the difference in the world. I bought some stuff to control the pests in the garden, so they don’t eat all my stuff before we get to enjoy it. As for the bigger pests, I got a really cool sprinkler that is called the Scarecrow that whenever a critter even breathes in the direction of my garden, it will get blasted with water. Lets hope we will have plenty to eat this year!
I hope everyone enjoys their Memorial Day!
