rain and sun shining

   (tea parties with friends)

 (some delicious pizza we made for lunch with some pesto and slow roasted tomatoes with garlic and       thyme from the freezer, ricotta, mushrooms, purple kale and some parsley on top)

    (S exploring at the park)
  (treats at the cafe before heading to the park. U had a "honey smoke" which is steamed milk with honey and we shared a muffin from this fabulous bakery)

The last few days have been nice. U had a friend over and they were so busy picking kale and broccoli in the garden, dressing up, picking crocuses in the yard and filling vases with them, having a tea party, and digging a stage in the backyard for their performances. Then a simple dinner with friends. 

Planning for chicks soon- I think we are going with Barred Rock, Buff Orpingtons, and Americaunas. Now we are just waiting for them to arrive. I am a little nervous to have chicks in the house with the baby, so I am excited for when we can move them to the back yard, but I am looking forward to hearing all their little peeps and I think U will love it. 

U is turning 5 in about a month and I think we are going to have his first friend party. We have always done simple family parties, with cake and singing and love. Last year, he wanted to go fishing and that was a really fun little trip with just the 3 of us. But this year he has expressed interest to have his friends over and he is getting very excited coming up with ideas. We will see what he settles on. 


  1. That pizza looks great! Did uzi like it? I've always been amazed by his taste. Blue Cheese ice cream!

  2. He loved it! He does have great taste, I am hoping Shosh will be the same way. I have some old notes from when he was around 2 or 3 that say "Uzi requested mint, borage flowers and bleu cheese on his slice of pizza". Ha!
