My radishes are done! I grew way way too many of them. I like radishes, but they are really not one of my favorite foods. I may have to search for some recipes. I can only eat so many salads with diced radishes. hhmm sauteed radishes.. not sure if that sounds good or really disgusting. Roasted radishes? yeah.. still not sure how that sounds.

I started cutting it before I took the pic

Fair Time Fun!

This past weekend was very busy. On Friday we headed to the fair. The kids had a blast!
We decided to buy them wrist bands so they could ride unlimited rides for 5 hours. woohoo!

The swings were spinning too fast, it was hard to get a picture of the kids.

Riding the coaster.
This thing went beyond slow.

My daughter had a blast driving!
The girl in the back.. not so much.

Riding the carousel.

Yes, my 7 year old son is in that thing!
I can't believe I allowed such scary things to happen.

Here he is right after.
He said it was AWESOME! but wasn't going to ride it again until he was 10.

Honk! Honk!

After the rides we headed over to check out the animals.

This goat looks a bit crazy.

Stinky cows

Long day

My Garden!

That is my garden! Ok I know to any real gardener I'm sure it probably looks like crap, but I'm happy it is actually growing! The space we have for it is tiny. Our yard is not very big at all and it is hard enough keeping the kids out of the garden as it is. I have carrots, lettuce, radishes and beets. I have some onions growing in another area.
I think my radishes might actually be ready for picking. My daughter and I ate some of the lettuce as we thinned it out a bit. Yum! So far the rabbits have left it alone (knock on wood) I think they are too busy eating the neighbors garden.

Weekend Fun

We had a pretty good fourth of July this year. We were all pretty lazy until 3:30 or so and then we headed over to a friends house. There was a lot of people there we didn't know, ok we pretty much knew about 4 people out of 20 or so. Our friend was grilling out with his neighbor and the neighbor had a bunch of friends over as well. There was also a crap-ton of kids running around. Which was good because it gave someone for our kids to play with. Keep them out of our hair for 20 mins. :) We decided to not go to the big fireworks in town. They have been really crappy the past few years. We did however have a lot of fireworks at the cook-out and actually some pretty good ones. We ended up staying to about midnight. Lia passed out around 11:30 while sitting on daddy's lap. She was so pooped from running around all day.

Fun with sparklers!

Today we grilled out as well. This time it was just the fam though. My husband mows the neighbors yard so he gives us salmon that he catches himself up in Alaska. So we grilled that today. Along with some potatoes, brats and the best portabella mushrooms I've had in a long time. YUM!

Hanging out waiting for food to cook.
