This month is already almost gone. I think I set a record for time lapsing from when I took pictures to when I downloaded them onto my camera. I can't believe there was a picture on there from the beginning of the month!

Logan trying out sparklers and loving them.

When we moved in, Josh's parents gave us a grow box as a gift, and Josh and I have tried out gardening for the first time. Josh and I have never had to do any yard work since we have been married, and we still don't have a yard in our townhouse, but we have been working on our back area slowly getting it ready to lay sod. And we have taken care of the little garden. It has been a great experience. I don't know very much, but it has been a miracle as I watched the plants grow, blossom, and bear fruit. I loved initially planting, because I felt like it was a adult-sized sensory table, and the other day as I was watering I noticed some of the little tomatoes were red and ripe. I was so excited I went and picked them and showed Logan and Josh. Logan might turn orange by the end of the summer, because he eats them so fast.

I am learning. I have petunias out front in big flower pots and they are actually doing really well, except that snails climb up in them. About a month ago I found two snails in the middle one. I didn't think much of it, I just got frustrated and got them out. Well, today I was looking in the pot and noticed a snail, and as I looked closer I noticed tons and tons of baby snails. I should have known. Two snails in a secluded spot can only mean trouble. I hope my petunias survive.

Green peppers, we haven't tried them yet, but they are getting really big.

One of our bigger tomatoes and basil from our garden. Yum, yum.

And little Logan, who I fear shall soon eat us out of house and home. He is climbing into the pantry to find some viddles. He is fun, but he is two. Which lately seems very challenging.

We miss you 4th of July.

My pictures of Logan are hit and miss, for some reason he loves to smile for everyone else, so hopefully I will be able to steal pictures. When I ask to take a picture of him, I get a face like this:

And there was fire this year. Love it.
