Our First Attempt

at gardening is producing some results! We are so excited.
This part of our yard was covered in loose gravel but it was the only space we had that could possibly fit a garden. A small garden, but a garden nontheless.
After a lot of trips with the wheelbarrow, we were finally able to plant some seeds.
We weren't sure exactly what would grow but we are pleased to report that we will at least have zucchini. Dan and the boys have done all the work. They are awesome!
We removed a Christmas tree that has been here forever and decided to put an orange tree instead. Sorry, tree. I hope you don't mind.

Blessing Day

Emma was blessed on July 12. We are so thankful for our family and friends who made this occasion even more special. My mom made her dress. I love it! Gracias, Mami!

Brandon, Blake, Jacob, Joshua, and Emma. Her brothers are so good to her!

Ericka bought this dress for Emma and she wanted a picture with her wearing it.
Thanks, Ericka!
And last but not least, the usual attempt of trying to get the grandchildren to take a picture.
We missed you Kyle!!
I don't know why we think that surely this will be the time when everyone smiles and cooperates. I'm sure we'll get one sometime.
A special Thank You to Chris (my brother-in-law) for being our patient photographer!
