I think we're ready

to be farmers. Look at ALL the food we grew this whole summer!

5 Red cabbages, 4 funky-shaped cucumbers, 3 beets, 1 green pepper, and a bazillion carrots. Tyler had to arrange them according to size - can you tell he's an engineer? Yeah, I think we have more to learn before we can survive "living off the land". Until then - carrot, anyone?


Oh yeah, we grew a TON of basil. If you're closeby and want to make some pesto - by all means, come on over before it dries up!


Tyler & I had a big talk about making weekly dates more of a priority. Tyler isn't much of a "dater" per se, he prefers to just hang out. I enjoy hanging out - but I welcome the opportunity to dress up and GO OUT! We decided that we will try having a lunch date every week. Today we went to a local mexican restaurant - tasty! Here's a picture to show how nice looking (and HUNGRY) we were before we left.

Yummy food. I'm impressed!

I miss date night. I seriously wish I knew how to fit it into our schedule. During the week is impossible and the weekends aren't much better...

How cute! Kit has been wanting us to get a date night, but...we don't have baby-sitting girls in our ward and no one is really wanting to trade baby-sitting...poor kit. He makes do with redbox videos and take-out occasionally. I truly do think it is so important to cherish our spousal relationships and kuddos to you for doing that!

Great garden. I'm impressed. We've never been good about growing carrots. Our broccoli, peas, and zucchini did fine though.

Cool--K

That's better than we did this year! I kept meaning to put a tomato plant in a pot on our patio but never got around to it. Luckily, we inherited a cherry tomato plant, some banana peppers and various herbs at our new house.
You'll have to let us know how your home grown produce tasted!

I wish we could have a garden! It's hard when you rent. Maybe someday. Good job, though! Mmmm, carrots...

Date night--something we really really want to do, but not something that happens very often. I agree, it's kinda fun to get all dolled up and go out for the night! I should take advantage of having both my sisters nearby and have them babysit more often =)

BTW, my mom just told me today that Uncle Mike is planning a reunion in late June in Austin (where Tina and Bill are). I hope hope hope we can go, but it of course depends on finances and our car. Do you think you might be able to make it?

That's a great idea. You two are so cute together.
