Life lately

I am sort of obsessed with having a lawn.
This use to be just dirt and a few sprigs of bermuda here and there.
 After a lot of watering I now have something that sort of resembles a lawn.
 I still have a long way to go.
Enjoying the rain
Riding our bikes in the day time during July is a rare treat!
(as I prefer not to pass out while on my bicycle from heat exhaustion)

 Happiness for Clara is having a patch of grass, large or small, to sprawl out on.

My amazing little girl turned 5 yesterday. All day I kept thinking back to her birth and all the sweet memories we've had together so far. On my to do list is to make a slideshow and pick my favorite memories of her from our first five years together!


and now.. 

Happy Birthday my beautiful girl!! You bring so much light & happiness into our lives.

     The Library is our new best friend this summer.

Clara loves the grab the Camera and snap pictures ;) It's funny seeing the world from her eyes and what she decides to take a picture of. It's really weird seeing pictures of ME!

And that is all for now..

xoxo, Jen

Beans, Bingo and Bugs

We played a serious game of Bingo during a cool break in the hot weather.

Hello Kitty Bingo..And we got visited by lots of bugs which lead to great conversation about butterflies.. cocoons..and the cycle of life.

Later...Sorted my Tepary beans from Ramona Farms, a Pima Indian farm.
Awaiting another brutal summer..Going to try to be more proactive this summer and trying to enjoy it and make trips out of town as needed to get relief from the heat!
