Home again, home again, Jiggity Jig

Whew! What a long 17 days.
2,673 Miles, 40 hours, 3 children ages five and under, five stops, one wedding, two audiobooks...





Also, we were blessed with what my grandfather calls an "uneventful trip." For those of you outside the family this translates into "no car trouble." It was a lot of fun. We got to see all living grandparents and great-grandparents, lots of cousins and aunts and uncles on the maternal sides of M's and my families. And F managed to scream half the time we were in a large crowd unless she was in her booster seat or stroller or in my arms (and she screamed about 1/3 of the time she was in my arms). Otherwise everything was awesome.

We were fed so well and so much, M and I were talking seriously about just eating salad for a couple of weeks. In reality that means, less fatty, carby foods, lots of salad, but other food as well. :)

We came home to crazy growth in the garden.

 Now:
Lettuce anyone?
 We have to eat massive salads every meal in order to eat all of this lettuce. I wonder how long it will stay good. I have just been harvesting leaves, but I am thinking maybe I should just pull up the whole head. And my spinach started seeding, but still tastes okay... should we still eat it? I am not joking, when I offer lettuce to anyone who wants to come by for some. :)

Alright, that's it for now. I will be back soon. :)

    1. I did spend an hour weeding this morning, before I took the pictures. Before I got the weeds up, it looked overwhelming...
