Walk in the Woods

This mama loves a quiet walk in the woods with my littles.

GP's Garden

GP is our guinea pig Patches. GP didn't like vegetables when we first brought him home so I decided to get the kids excited about eating vegetables by planting a guinea pig garden in a pot. We went to the hardware store to purchase vegetable seeds and some herbs. We planted basil, dill, thyme, sugar snap peas, carrots, and radishes. I am hoping that the kids will be more likely to each fresh vegetables now that they are so excited about feeding them to GP.

The best part about this whole adventure is that the planter will be right outside the back door and we will see it everytime we walk in and out of the house. The kids and I will be able to keep a close eye on the growth of GP's vegetables.
