Here is our Village Green garden so far!

Casey and Spencer working hard to get the garden ready!

Riley and Sadie hangin out

Today went to the Nursery and got some seeds and plants for the garden! I'm really excited to start planting tomorrow. We got some corn, peas, cucumbers, lettuce, peppers, strawberries, squash, tomatoes, radishes, watermelons, cantaloupe, rhubarb, and carrots. I hope that we can get it all to grow and that we can keep the little bunnies from eating everything!

Missionary Zoo Day!

On Monday it was pretty nice and so I took the kiddos to the zoo. We went to Wild Kingdom Pavilion first and I took Ryan out of the stroller so he could walk around. He loved exploring the building and looking at the animals and other exhibits. Riley loves looking at all the cute little animals and the fish. She also likes looking at the skeletons....she always tells me that they have "owies". While we were in that building we ran into Natsume and Elias...he is the cutest little guy! I talked with Natsume for a little while before we left to head down to the aquarium. We noticed a bunch of missionaries and so it was fun to say hi to them and talk to them a little. We ended up staying at the zoo for a couple of hours and we saw a TON of other missionaries. It was kind of fun to see all of them there. I didn't know that there were even that many missionaries in the Omaha area!

Here are some pics!

Riley's New Bike

Last night we got Riley her first bike. She was so excited! I wish we could have taken her outside to ride it, but this is what it looked like today:
So we decided just to let her try out her new bike inside the house.
Here are some pictures:

She had so much fun today....she rode her bike most of the day! I was surprised at how fast she could turn the corners in our little house! Now we just need to teach her how the use the brakes!

Ryan loves to climb the stairs now....

Now he just needs to learn how to go down the stairs....
