I've been meaning to tell you about how the early garden is coming along, but I've been sidetracked by all the ark-building going on around here. It's been raining, or at least drizzling for about four days. On the plus side, this means that a bunch of ball games have been postponed, which means traditional family meals every night. I think we've been hanging out long enough for you to know that that's important to me.
I know I've already posted about Ava's birthday dinner requests. She had a trip to the little local zoo with some of her Besties on Friday. (The rain held off for the three hours required for seeing the whole of the zoo.) And we're not done yet. Her birthday seems like Mardi Gras this year; we just can't seem to stop celebrating. The meal with the grandparents, aunties and uncles is coming up this Sunday after church. I've been inspired by the teacher appreciation dinner and planning to have Haystacks.
We're supposed to have thunderstorms tomorrow, but I'm trying to believe I can go to the garden for a bit anyway. In the meantime, here's a picture of the sweet girls at the zoo.
