Grass heads of summer fun

My good friend Kathie sent these funny guys in the spring. The kids have been growing them for the last several weeks. They are having a ball with them. Aren't they hilarious?!!

Lots and lots bloomin' today!

What is Bloomin' today?

See how our garden grows?

A few more pics from the garden this week. Bonne sent us colorful ornamental corn, Vin and I planted it, now it is so tall and the ears are really getting to be a good size. Our one and only watermelon is now the size of my 2 yr olds head, the green peppers are almost ready , our cukes have been very good this year and our cherry tomatoes are ever so tasty!

A fun project

Well, my 2 yr old is using the same car seat my 10 yr old used. It has been through most of my kids and the cover was showing its wear. We just find this seat so easy to use, we haven't replaced it when we have updated our carseat fleet. I wish I would have taken a before and after shot, but I am so spur of the moment that I did not think about that. Anyway, I had gotten this really heavy duty upholstery fabric last summer and my 2 yr old liked it, so I thought why not? So, out came the seam ripper and a few hours later, voila!
