Living off the Land!

Lucy and I planted Basil seeds in January and now they are big plants. Last night I picked a bunch of leaves and made pesto with gnocci! My Italian grandma would be proud! 
plants wondering where all their leaves went!
Lucy got a balloon that day from Central Market...
ah, the look of appreciation! priceless!

We are enjoying our first Texas summer. It is super HOT just like everyone warned, but we are liking it a lot. Life is just so much easier with a driveway, carport (for shaded not so hot car), backyard, close parks and public kiddie pools. I'll post some recent pictures.
Lucy is bonkers for popcycles! Asks for one numerous times a day...
Lucy painting Greta blue! (sorry Virginia!)
Lucy/Daddy painting collaboration. Lucy likes to tell us what to paint and then we try our best to make her vision come to life!
Lucy wanted to try out her umbrella and raincoat in the sprinkler!
We finally got the screen porch cleaned and uncluttered!! I even shampooed the carpet!!
