Over the weekend we celebrated Kevin's birthday yet again! He really has stretched this one out! Then the next day we had a family work day in the backyard enjoying the beautiful weather. What a nice weekend.
The boys helping their dad blow out the candles on the cake.
It's great having a big cousin named Alex who likes to give fun wagon rides . . .
. . . and another big cousin named Brian who poses as a human basketball goal.
Even Gram scored a basket.
Enough partying for Kevin . . . now on to our backyard project.
First of all the garden had to be prepared a couple of days ago. Then Farmer Philip had to haul in the soil. It was a dirty job, but someone had to do it!
What's that in the wheelbarrow? Is it something to plant in the new garden?
Well, what do you know? It's Philip Bao - a new variety of spice all the way from China!
