Todd's sister Jenny and her newish husband, Brit, came to visit us in May. I don't know what the rest of you do when you have relatives come to visit, but we put ours to work. (Our house is not so much a hotel as a youth hostel.)

The boys had all sorts of fun jumping on their Aunt and Uncle, and we had a great time seeing Jenny again and getting to know Brit better. (Especially since he helped fuel my Buffy the Vampire Slayer addiction! AND mowed the lawn!!! Seriously, how fabulous is that?! He was standing there, so I handed him the lawn mower AND HE MOWED MY BACKYARD!!! I wish that worked with my kids...)

Here are some pictures from the brand new garden we made on the side of my deck. It was a weed patch before. Check out the pics!

This was my weed patch:
This is what it looked like when we were done (note my lovely raised asparagus bed, and strawberry pyramid and rain barrels. Love them.) :

And here are the fabulous (and silly) folks who made it happen:

Great work in the yard. Gotta love family who play with kids and help you get work done.

Wow. That IS a silly picture. Have I mentioned how much I hate pictures of me? That's a pretty darn sexy one of my husband, though..... good job.

Beautiful garden. I'm especially impressed because I saw it before it was and can appreciate how much hard work it took. I'm proud of you daughter.
