Grandpa & Meemaw come for a visit

We've enjoyed spending the last few days with my parents visiting. We packed a lot in, and thus, my absence from the blog world. The boys each had 2 games in 3 days and Grandpa and Meemaw cheered them on to victory in each game. My dad and I worked on several projects around the house while the kids were in school on Monday & Tuesday. Meemaw kept the home fires burning with cooking, cleaning and getting the kids ready for bed each night.

My dad brought his new toy all the way from Indiana and we put it to use right away with a load of free mulch that I scored from the Lexington Urban Gov't. Wohoo! Free mulch!

Next we used the skid loader to til up more garden space.

The girls helped carry some scrap wood to the burn pile.

Of course they wanted to stop and pose for a picture

We finished up last night by planting
some corn, sweet potatoes, radishes and onions.

We've gone from 1 cute little rabbit in the field behind our house to many rabbits in the field (funny how that happens) so Dad suggested a fence this year. I think it was well worth the investment.

My sister Kelly made these cute stepping stones and Dad & I made a path from the driveway to try and cut down on the mud my precious ones keep tracking into the house. Thanks, Kel!
