Its been an interesting year with the weather. Due to a late frost we have lost our apples for this year. I am so disappointed with that. The Crows and turkeys ate all our corn and sunflowers 3 times ...grrrrrr. So i think that is the bad news!
Tyler has been a great help with the garden, he goes out and picks the peas and beans. He is so active now omg. Here he is leaping over the dog repeatedly.
He has finally passed his drivers test and now can drive with a minor in the gator! I dont know who was more excited him or Emma. She loves going for rides and yes she is buckled in.
Look we have acorn squash starting!!! I am so excited its has been forever since we have grown a winter squash!
This is a shot of our big garden on the right is zucchini and summer squash. In the middle are the cukes that have run a muck! the left side has some hot pepper and the acorn squash. Tyler planted a watermelon plant in the middle of that row..its growing but i dont know if there are any blooms. Also i have an eggplant but it doesnt seem to be doing too well, i have never grown or eaten eggplant so i am hope this works out.
We have baby Brussels sprouts starting!
While we work in the garden Miss Emma likes to play with Max, but she calls him Dogie!
Isnt it refreshing to walk barefoot in the grass? I love it!!
Our first little strawberry

For the most part it was as planned. I wanted to do a few other things and the wind was not making it easy on the decorations. But i think those in attendance had a great time! Sadly when i tried to upload the photos to Blogger they are not in order and i am not use to my laptop yet to switch them around so just bear with me!
Emma had so much fun she was a big mess with her cake but she really loved the ice cream.
My little ladybug! I ordered these cute little antenna for emma and the little kids (but i stole one!) for the bigger kids i ordered fun ones in other colors but i didnt get any photos :(
So i completely decorated in pink and green with a little bit of Red. I used alot of the So Sweet ladybug items from Birthday Express and alot of items from Oriental express.
i used these pails from target for a $1 to tie the balloons too. I filled them with tissue paper i had planned to put snacks in them with pin wheels but it was so windy we were afraid of the mess. Each table also had a ladybug pop toy and ladybug bubbles. A sea of pink and green perfect for our ladybug queen!
Turning 1 is so sweet! We had a whole sweet table of pink red and green candy!
A close up of the cupcakes for the guests!
It was a great day! The kids got to play one the playground have a water gun fight and sneak up on the adults with silly string! Miss Emma was asleep before we left park! Less than 360 days till her next birthday......Strawberry shortcake?? hmm maybe!!!
