I took these a few days ago, just took awhile to get them posted.

Here is my garden this year. I have carrots, lettuce, zuchini, cucumbers, marigolds and snow peas in there.

These are on the back side of the little fence, I'm not sure what kind of flowers these are exactly. I believe some sort of daisy. They keep spreading a little every year, this is the best they've looked so far. I don't think the picture does them justice (maybe I should have messed with the color/vibrance in photoshop to help, oh well).

And here are more snow peas that I put next to the chicken coop to give them some shade. This is the first year I've ever grown snow peas. It's been great having them, I'll definitely do them again next year.

bike ramp

Dan built Jackson a little ramp for his bike. The neighbor boys come over and jump off it too. It's been fun.

pony's at the fair

Free pony rides are the best! Jackson did great on the pony ride, however we went back later and he didn't want to do it again. Once was enough.

the Fair!

We went to the fair! I showed Jackson pictures of us at the fair last year and it made him get excited. So then when we got in the parking lot, he started yelling "we're at the fair!" and he said he was excited. It was cute.

We met up with some friends and did some rides on Pepsi day. They chose the airplanes first.

Jackson made it about 3 times around and then started to cry. So the guy stopped the ride and let Jackson off early. He said he got scared.

the pool

We went to the pool the other day with some friends. Had lots of fun.

Here is a wide view of the pool's outdoor kids area. We love it, but it's about a 30 min drive away.

There is a small slide just for around Jackson's age. He can do it all by himself. The landing is in super shallow water. He wants to do the big slide by himself, but he's not tall enough yet (probably 2 more years).
