Joseph's 1st Fish

Joseph was the most excited I have seen him. He couldn't wait to go fishing.
This weekend we had a yard sale with some friends down town at her house. Joseph went shopping while we were there.....he "bought" some lures from his new buddy (Mr. Vern). That is what he calls buddy Mr. Vern. It got him so excited to go fishing and you can see he did a good job.

Just a little update on our garden. It is going much better than we ever thought. We have been enjoying squash and cucumbers for the last week or so. We are looking forward the the rest very soon.

Sweet Baby Girl Tomatoes

Banana Peppers


In our effort to get some exercise, Matt made us a trail in the field above our house. He spent about 2 hours mowing through weeds. It turned out really great. It's beautiful...It's like our very own small Canaan Valley. That's what it looks like.....trails over in the valley. We have seen deer, woodpeckers, birds, and even kitty enjoying the trail. You can even stop and pick some berries if you like.

John is riding his bike about 2 miles a day around the loop. I am walking/jogging (mostly walking) around a mile to a mile and a half. Matt is jogging about a mile or two. We are really enjoying getting out. .......well most of us.
Joseph is not so happy about the trail....well I didn't tell you about the not so good part. There are several ant hills along the side of the trail. You don't want to stop anywhere near them. That is good motivation to keep going.....which is good. but Joseph always stops for something and he gets a couple of ants on his feet and you can hear him for miles.

John's New Toy

We went to pick up Matt's bike at the bike shop and look what John fell in love with. He is getting really good at riding and he really loves it too. It will be good exercise for him. Everyone needs that......especially at our house. Joseph has moved up to training wheels......we will get picture of that soon.
