Aaron tilled and tilled and tilled to soften up the ground, built the "walls" then we planted. This year we hope to have tomatoes, cucumbers, okra, eggplant, zucchini, squash, strawberries, onion and several different herbs!
Do any of you garden? Any tips or secrets? I have a few to share once things start really growing!

Here's our plan. Hobby Lobby sells these clay pots at 1/2 price for $1.08 each. So we bought 8, along with some tempera paint and 2 paint pens. My plan is to put his hand prints on each pot, paint a sweet message from Walker and plant a flower in each.
I'm sure you could go all out decorating with ribbon, paints, fabrics and more but we are keeping it simple!
So for under $40 I plan to have a sentimental, "hand-made" gift for each "mom" in our family.
$20 - pots and paint
$20 - dirt and flowers
I'll be sure to post the finished product!

Walker entertained himself with this huge prehistoric bug for a while. He kept asking the bug to "o-juice" which translated to hold you. He also jumped off the terraces into Aaron's arms about 100 times which was fun to watch.
We got to watch the sunset over the water which made me feel like I was on vacation somewhere far away! If I lived in their neighborhood I might never leave that park!
So thankful for new friends to share nights like this with!!

Walker has been an absolute blast lately. Talking a lot more, asking the blessing and trying to repeat everything we say to him. He's a huge flirt, loves everything outdoors and has really kept me laughing this week!
Some of my favorite walker-isms are his sweet look, the way he says "bye-biiiii" and his favorite restaurant, "Vee-Va-Vay" - otherwise known as Chick-fil-A!! He can spot them all over the place!

I got the chance to go horseback riding with my mom at Cheatham Hill this morning and it was SO much fun. I rode Rosie. She's an Appaloosa Quarter Horse and is as sweet as she can be! We did a lot of walking, a little trotting and a little running.
It was a great time of peace, quiet and fun. So my little baby in-utero has been on a horse already! What an adventurer!!
Tomorrow my mom and I are doing hair for a wedding! I'm so excited:). It should be a fun day!
