Pueblo Zoo

Nana & Papa took the boys to the pueblo zoo today. Lots of fun, and we practically had the place to our selves. We saw all kinds of animals, but saying noah loved the otters may be an understatement.

Gardening 2011

This spring has been a super busy gardening season for me. Usually I have my little backyard garden that I tinker with and get some food in return. This year I had two new opportunities that have kept me very busy. I kept meaning to blog about my garden projects with little updates, but I…
