The Big Wrap Up

We've been busy traveling - well only to Sioux Falls - but still it's traveling - this month and finishing up on projects - with lots of pictures.

The garden is thriving. I have tomatoes growing, zucchini growing, peppers, and strawberries. We've been eating strawberries the past few days. Everything else is doing well too. The tomato plants are getting big! So are the squash plants. 

The deck is done!! I have to seal it, but I need a couple days with no rain and that won't happen for a few days here. It's so nice, we love it!!

We had a great time in Sioux Falls. The weather could have been better, but we still had a good time.

We went to the zoo while we were there too and had a good time. 

Ella got her new bike for her birthday and loves it! We had taken the pedals off her older bike and let her learn how to balance. It took her over the course of a week and she had her balance down pat. Once she got her new bike without training wheels (she's a very cautious rider) it only took about 10 minutes before she was riding like a pro. That was Wednesday night. On Sunday (yesterday) we went riding down the Regional Trail and we rode about 5 miles and she loved it!!

So I foresee a lot of bike riding this summer. 

She's at Vacation Bible School right now and has that this week. Before I know it the summer will be over and I will be sad, so off to do more summer things - or laundry as the case is right now. :)

I'm going to put the rest of the photos over on the photo blog, so check them out!!

What interesting pictures. We really like the new blog pic w/ Ella and Sammy.(But we like them all.).

Sounds like the garden is doing great and glad to hear deck is finished. We will have to see update pictures of both.

We enjoyed the story of Ella and her new bike. Bet she was excited that when she started pedalling her bike all by herself. 5 miles is a long way for a little (big) girl (good going Ella).

Summer bible school already. Hard to believe that summer starts today. Enjoy your summer.
