Some good friends of ours (who also happen to be in our small group) have a very large garden on their property that they graciously chose to make a community garden this year. To kick off the season, they hosted a potluck/garden planting day.
Someone brought monster cookies to the potluck. Wyatt was a big fan. It's possible that his mother was as well. A very big fan.
He didn't. My arms, however, were about ready to fall off from carrying him for so long, so I bribed Elliot with a juice box and got both boys back up the stairs onto solid ground where we checked on the progress of the planting.
After all that digging in the dirt, a bunch of the kids went back down to the lake to hang out in the row boat.
Now, before you get concerned about the fact that none of them are wearing life jackets, let me assure you that the boat was tied to the dock the entire time.
After a hard day of work it was time to relax and enjoy the sunshine. Soon enough it will be time to begin harvesting! Until then, we will enjoy a weeding party or two. And if we're very lucky, perhaps there will be more monster cookies involved.
