A day at the Botanicals

tired, hungry...had a meltdown after picture was time to leave!

aren't they so cute...

Sally's first date with Micah...good call, micah!!!

Sally with future mother-in-law!

Olivia Engstrom and I were able to take the kiddos to the new DinoLand at the Botanical Gardens here in Austin this morning. It was fun! We had moments of melt downs, but as we persevered through it, got a few good pics and ended the day with lunch and naps, Olivia and I had a good time! we actually got to finish a few conversations! Thanks for today, Olivia! we love you guys! We got some good pics for "the future wedding", too! =)

Our Future Garden continues to develop!

SO, the garden is continuing to be step at a time....the dirt and boxes have gone is almost time for the food to be planted! We are already learning things from the process...we are praying this garden will be a testimony to our neighbors...would be a joy and make an opportunity for us to share of our most joy...Jesus...that it would be a blessing to our community.
This morning I looked out and there were doves...15! of them walking over all of the dirt in the boxes....maybe that is normal...but all the other birds that are in our yard every morning were eating on the opposite side of the garden...We pray that this garden would bring peace...the peace of Jesus somehow to our neighbors and friends...we will watch and see how God does this. Regardless of the reason, I thanked God for that picture this morning!
