These pictures were taken at the end of May. Now the garden is huge!!!!! We have already picked 2 zucchini, 3 cucumbers, lots of peppers and all the lettuce. The beans haven't been very productive but maybe we will get more as time progresses. I can tell the eggplants are going to be good and the tomatoes should be hearty.

This sign is really true because I started working again. Somehow my weekends aren’t helping me catch up. After my first week of work we moved Jenn into her summer internship in Wisconsin. She is making making more than me and they are even paying all her living expenses! After my second week of work we went to visit my parents for Mother’s Day. Hopefully after my third week of work I will get to stay home and do some much needed work in and around the house!

While shopping at Menards a few days ago, Bob and I heard a helicopter hovering above the store. It just didn't stop so we went to the outside area of the store where they house the large items and wood. What we saw is in the pictures below. The helicopter was holding steady in its place while a man sat on a platform and worked on the electrical tower. It looked extremely dangerous! Another shopper told us the pilot makes $175 per hour and the worker makes $150 per hour. I think they deserve even more! As they were pulling away I waved at the man and he waved back!

Maria is so creative. She made these adorable butterfly place cards for our Easter table. They are made out of paper. The intricate cut out on the left of the wing is so beautiful. I was careful to make sure we could use them again next year. She also made the wooden bunny hanging on the wall. The flowers on the bunnies ear are made out of paper. She can make these big and small and has made them for the top many gifts and even framed some. She’s always making something!.

We had a wonderful Easter weekend. My parents arrived on Friday. We shared meals with Bob's parents and then expanded our fun with the girls and their boyfriends on Saturday and Sunday.

I'm a very good cook. I'm not bragging but I really can make just about anything. Bob is a good cook too so together we make a great team. The one thing I can't cook is rice. I'm getting better at making it and practice makes perfect!
