Baby Garden 2013

Over in our neck of the woods it is and has been time for planting. I am mostly in charge of everything this time and I've never done it before so I am very anxious for everything to work out well. :) Before Zachary, my older brother, has done it but since he's moved out and is on his own now I guess I'll be taking up the mantel. So without further ado here's a look at what we've got up our sleeve for the garden this year.

First the seeds:

Forty different kinds of seeds!

We made two orders. Here is the first. Everything came from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds. A company I highly recommend.

Canoeing the Blackwater

Saturday morning after a meeting at church we and some friends headed off for a fun day canoeing on the Black Water River. Here are a few pictures from our trip.

Oh but first, I'll have to tell you how we started our trip. Mom Dad and Jubal were in the wobbly red canoe and not thirty feet after shoving off they ran into the bridge and the whole canoe flipped over! Jubal had on a life jacket and Dad grabbed him up immediately. At first he was scared but after reassurances he began to smile. After that baby brother rode with Levi, Savannah, and I instead in the Trailblazer. The canoe was loaded up with stuff. A water resistant bag with our phones and keys in it, a styrofoam bowl, the purple lunch cooler bag, Dad's jacket and then the paddle came floating down to us. Levi jumped out of the boat to help and Savannah and I went after the paddle which was quickly headed down river. The first sweep we missed but the second time we were able to grab it up. Our friends caught hold of some overhanging branches down river when they realized what had happened.
One thing we didn't realise was that it was 420. April twentieth a lot of people have parties and smoke a joint at 4:20 PM. The river was crowded with tons of people. Eventually we passed them all though.

Now here are some pictures.
Getting ready to shove off.
