my baby turned 6 last week. it makes me feel like an old mom!
we went camping in our local mountains and stopped at the pozo saloon for lunch. they served their water in a recycled olive jar!
we had quite the crew of kids while we were camping, but it was surprisingly relaxing!
everyone had a few turns at the “weaponry”: bow and arrows and bb guns. i need more practice with the bow – my forearm is all bruised up from it!
silas has been asking sean constantly to go shooting ever since sean brought his childhood bb guns home from his parents’ house.
i have a fun contest going on instagram right now! take a pic of the contents of your bag and post them on instagram with the hashtags #thepleatedpoppy and #whatsinmybag. winners will get a $50 and $25 gift certificate to my shop! details here.
we have been working all this week on our front yard, setting a flag stone patio and walkways.
i am loving the way its all turning out, but i am exhausted! my parents have been working hard all week on this and i am so appreciative of it! today we set the stones with a poly sand and then we’re spreading mulch over all the dirt. the yard will finally look nearly finished!
i’ve had fun playing with my new canon eos rebel sl1 this week! its so small that it fits in the palm of my hand!
our garden is bursting with flowers right now! and each flowers seems to be a home to a family of bugs.
we had some friends over a couple times this week for a bbq. setting the table is always my favorite job.
my friend jess brought the yummiest pies: lemon meringue and key lime pie! ohmyword these were crazy good!
during our bbq, we played around with my new camera and compared my other dslr to my new one. wow, what a size difference! do you want a new camera? i’m giving one away over here!
after working my tail off in the yard all week, i was too exhausted to do much after dinner, so si, lu and i hung out with my parents and watched shark week (sean and lily were on a date). silas and i were putting on our shark week faces ;)
what are you up to this weekend? we’re throwing si a little party, having dinner with our besties and then hopefully laying low!
