Today we took full advantage of the nice warm weather! This morning, my dad and Brian tilled up a section of our yard to put in a garden. We've never attempted a garden because of the work it involves. However, I also know how great it is to get fresh vegetables for little to no cost! We didn't actually plant anything yet, but plan to in the next week or so. Macie is so excited and keeps calling it her garden. She wanted to be outside helping them, but instead she sat on the kitchen table and colored while looking out the window. This afternoon, we had a small cook out. We invited the Morris family, Sights family, Maurer family, and Allie over. We grilled smoked sausages, and had chips, baked beans, and hash brown casserole with them. We also had strawberry cake for dessert. It was so good! We hung out, played washers and corn hole, and the kids ran around like crazy! I think everyone had a good time and it was so nice to just hang out in the backyard. We just don't do it enough! Macie and Gavin both had a ball and were filthy from head to toe. When everyone left, we gave the kids a much needed bath and put them to bed. We didn't have too much clean up because we ate outside, so now we are spending the evening relaxing. I'm looking forward to more cookouts in the near future!
