It's Harvest Time!

We finally have a great space in the yard for our garden after all our landscaping projects...
And we finally have our first harvest!!
That lovely eggplant and fresh basil turned into last night's dinner...which was fabulous if I do say so myself
And a shot of our beautiful grass in the back...
And for good measure...my boy after a finger painting session...he doesn't really see the point in the paper when his body is available for art

4th of July trip to the mountains

Over the 4th of July weekend we ventured up to the mountains in North Georgia to try and get some relief from the 105 degree heat index we've been experiencing in Atlanta. We ended up swimming at Vogel State Park and the waterfall at Helton Creek Falls.

Another current favorite these days....the playground



I need driving

Hank's catch phrase lately is "I need ____" insert just about anything. Every time we pull into the driveway he immediately starts yelling "I need driving!" He has a fit if I don't let him "drive" before we go inside.

Blog Makeover



So I've had this on my to-do list for a while now, but let's face it..my to-do list never has less than 28 items on it at any given time so "blog makeover" is easily bumped down for those more pressing items. However, this has been a project that I've been excited about for a while. I follow a lot of 365 blogs that I really enjoy (for those unfamiliar, a 365 blog is a picture a day), I feel like you really get a better feel for "real life" on family blogs when you get a look into everyday rather than hitting the high points aka birthday, christmas, mother's day etc. Also, I love photography but can never find the time to work on my photography skills. Lastly, I have this little man in my house that I love to photograph and basically why anyone reads this blog. So, I decided to give my blog a new look, make an effort to get my camera out more often, and document more often. I can't promise that I will provide 365 days of pictures, but so far I've done much better and am really enjoying it!
