It's Been a While, meet Collin :)

I was pregnant. What felt like forever. 

We had a baby boy, Collin. 

He and Harper get a long great :)

Collin is such a good baby. 

We bought a house in St. George. Wah???? Johnny took over a management position at Dixie Regional, while still being enrolled in his last year of the pMBA program at the UofU making long crappy commutes every week to SLC. 

Harper and Collin are still good friends. 

Johnny started a business with a friend and launched their first venture. 
And any spare time is currently being sucked from us by the yard and house. Crazy things have happened since I posted last. I love looking back and seeing how much can happen in only a year or two.

For the beauty of the earth.

I love spring. I've decided I like temple square in the spring with the tulips and blossoms even more (way more, really) than at Christmas with the lights. I think it's so much more appealing. Perfect temperature, smells fantastic, less crowded, let your kid run free on the grass, stop by Rocky Mt Chocolate Factory for a chocolate caramel covered apple, eat it outside near the fountains at City Creek, go buy more chocolate 'cause it was so good you want more and end up spending too much- but it's ok every now and again, eat it outside near the fountains at City Creek, again, wipe off your sticky child, go home and your child goes to bed easily that night 'cause he's tired... ahhhh.

Cross your fingers

This year I was ambitious with the small space we have in back. I more than doubled the amount of pots we grew last year. From 4 to 9 to be exact. Hopefully everything grows cause if you were to look at Tito's patch of grass we laid for him last year you'd think it would all be dead in a week. This year we have a patio tomato, cherry tomato, basil, oregano, parsley, thyme, rosemary, a small sweet pepper, spinach, lettuce, 2 strawberry, peas, and green beans. The peas, beans, lettuce and spinach are all from seed and I've never done that before. I'm also waiting just a titch longer to plant some cucumber seeds but honestly I don't know where it will go. Sheesh, last year was only a tomato plant and herbs. I want to have some good early spring,  late summer pictures so I really hope everything does well. I especially want some produce, lots and lots and lots.
