The Great Dandelion Hunt

Well, I had to take pictures and share this with everyone. Yesterday evening when Larry Denzil got home from work, we all went outside and picked dandelions. It was a literal competition for the kids. Larry Denzil told them whoever picks the most, will get 2 candy bars. I never saw so much mayhem. It was like an egg hunt all over again. Savannah played it smart and won the hunt. She saw Larry Denzil and I both picking flowers and would run over to us to collect ours and add to hers.

For those of you who do not know, we live on just over a half acre level lot. That is something very hard to come by in this mountainous region. So Larry is very proud of his yard and tries to maintain it. The last thing he wants to see are weeds.

This weekend, we hope to get our garden plowed. We are in the planning stages of deciding what to plant. Last year we were quite successful with our tomatoes canning over 20 qt jars. But our corn did not turn out very well. I will be sure to take pictures of our family in our garden. I hope everyone is healthy and well and enjoying the spring weather as much as we are.

To Benny and Hope, I wish you guys a successful delivery of your darling little girl Ava. Good luck you guys and enjoy your rest over this next week.

Finally a picture of you! Lord you haven't changed much.

Are you coming back to Georgia anytime soon? How long does it take to get from here to there?

Keep the blog coming. I'm living vicariously through you. :)
