We poured our pad for the garden shed this weekend. We had some great friends come to help us out and got the job done pretty fast!
And got to make his hand prints in the cement. (Payton did too, but we undid hers!)
Afterwards, we took a mountain bike ride, went to the playground and got ice cream with Grand-dan and Mooze. We are pretty sure that Peter's ice cream intake was bigger than Garrick's taking into account his size.
We were at Target last night looking for porch furniture. We rolled past the ball pen and Pete of course saw it and started to say ball, ball. I of course said yeah, look at them all! As we continued our way down the aisle he started to look around me and was saying, mama, mama, mo-, mo- (more, more) ball, ball, mo-, mo-. Until we turned the corner and they were out of sight... but not out of mind- the tears started and Garrick and I felt like pretty much the meanest parents in the entire world- I mean- who denies their kid a ball? Peter did NOT get a new ball last night... Poor kid.
Finally, this morning I was in a meeting for school and Pete was just walking around playing and reading books by himself. All of the sudden I hear a sucking sound in the kitchen. I go to see what he's doing and he is here:
Sitting on the table sticking his hand in the cereal bowl drinking the milk out of it. All of our chairs are now against the wall away from the table.
I hope you are all staying cool this week! It is 9:00 and 86*... whew.

Then to end the night we went out to what used to be called Smith Farms- it has a new name- with Lindsay, Chris and Oscar for homemade fire baked pizza. It is only about 20 minutes away from our house and is OH SO DELICIOUS. They only bake on Thursday nights so it is a little crazy there. The farm is also a CSA and they have chickens, cows, a few sheep and alpacas running around. Pete loved watching the animals and did many loops checking them out. The chickens were his fav though. Garrick saw me checking everything out and got the message... this is something that I could do and be very happy. My goal for this summer: To be a mini-CSA for some of our friends in Winona!! *You guys better get your requests in now!*

Pete thought it was so funny to crawl around- and stand up!

Speaking of the chickens- they are also growing so fast! I am glad we got them when they were so little- they are so cute though and are getting most of their feathers in which is nice so we don't have to worry about them at night anymore! Pete and I like to dig up worms in the garden and feed the chickens them out of our hands- the big black one in the front's name is Pepper- we haven't officially named any of the others yet- she is the troubbbble maker and the cheese.
Most of the tulips are done growing, but the iris's and some other bulbs are starting! Later this week I am going out to a friend's farm to get a truck load of rocks to edge out the gardens- can't wait!

We went to Madison for the weekend to visit Matt and Lara, to go to a family friend's wedding- dad and her dad have skied together for a LONG time, and then then next morning we went for a little hike at PeeWee's Nest to see the river, the rocks and plants. My mom was at work so she missed out on
not having fun with us... we took some pictures so that she could live vicariously through them at least. We can't wait to go back and go swimming this summer and then to take Petey when he is a little older to jump off of the high low rocks into some of the swimming holes.
