It was a good week.  So busy. With Alex's Garden Initiative happening tomorrow (we're giving away 700 vegetable gardens to low income families in our city), its been a little crazy.  But good. I leave for El Salvador to work at the church and Nutrition Center for malnourished children in less than a month, and so until then I am soaking up every bit of my sweets as I can.
I love this boy.  After 3 girls I was terrified of having a boy.  But oh, he is a gift from above.

 What a 2 year old and 4 year old can accomplish in 2 minutes

 Boys can teach a mother of 3 girls a lot of things, like sticks make good pretzel holders!

 Mmmm Shrimp Scampi

 My girl finally got her chance at riding Grandpa Jeff's horse and never wanted to get off again

 Oh dining room bliss....{happy sigh} My table arrived and with it, the completion of a project 6 years in the making!

 A certain robin has claimed the tree house as hers, and squawks from the nearby tree every time we go in it

 Home-girl got glasses!  Isn't she adorable?  Notice sister in the back who sobbed because Izzy looked so different from what she was used to.

 Have Mercy. {said with Uncle Jesse from Full House inflection}  My son is so sweet.

 Layla Lu turned 7!!!!!  Agh!  I still can't believe it.

 What did she want for her birthday?  A grownup manicure  :)

 That is the life.  Fall into carefree sleep where ever you are, when ever you want.

Happy Spring to you!  I hope that you found some happiness in your week too.  I love the concept of looking for the little moments in your life that really mean the most.
