Summer is here

Today is Justin's golden birthday- 23 on the 23rd! We celebrated last night with a campfire with friends, roasting hot dogs, corn, and marshmallows, and eating homemade strawberry 'ice cream' cake. It was fun, and even though he put up a fight to not do anything for his party, I think he enjoyed it! Today he works and has church softball, so we'll have his favorite for dinner, tacos, and have a laid back celebration.

Summer is in full swing, finally! I've started in the kitchen and I've really been enjoying it. My coworkers are a lot of fun and the good conversation makes the long days go faster. We get to meet new and interesting people every week.

Our plants are doing really well. I've been enjoying my 'garden' and the results of it. Cooking with fresh herbs you've grown yourself is wonderful, and the flowers add so much to the balcony. The strawberries are starting to turn red, and the spinach has taken off. I can't wait for the tomatoes to start, and then we'll be eating fresh fruit and veggies everyday!

Now that the weather has finally turned nice, we've been wanting to take advantage of the lake and do some kayaking, but we both got sick last week and we've been so busy with work that we haven't had time. So hopefully the weather will hold and when we're both healthy and available, we can get to the lake.

We're looking forward to the weekend, celebrating Grandma and Grandpa G's 50th wedding anniversary and spending time with family.
