Ben and I decided that we wanted to put in some pretties in our front yard, so off I went to the library (since I have not the slightest clue about anything that grows) to begin my in depth research project. I had the greatest time learning all this plant stuff!! With much deliberation and help (THANK YOU, Mrs. Lapiska), THIS is what I decided on:
BUT FIRST... we have to clear out all the grass
(bear with me, because I am SUPER excited about all this! There are a billion pictures capturing every possible angle - but they're ALL pretty!!!)

This great strawberry patch we found last year. We were looking forward to another picking outing with some friends, the FRENCH'S...but the patch CLOSED due to a so-so crop. Boo-hoo! I got an e-mail from "the farmer" announcing that the patch was open for 2 days! THIS was our chance. Of course, I read the e-mail too late for the first day. The next night happened to be our school's graduation (which Ben was participating in). With all that in mind, we decided to "risk" it for some yummy strawberries. CRAZY?? YES!! Ben came home a little early and we jumped in the car, fought through Friday afternoon D.C. traffic, arrived at the patch with 30 minutes to pick what we could. The kids had a great time, even when it started to sprinkle. Luke was the first to chicken out, so I took him and Kate to some shelter. Ethan, who decided he was "brave" like daddy, joined us when the sprinkles turned into a downpour. Ben was the hero and made sure we came home with a few more than 13 strawberries!!
We even made it back for graduation with time to spare! Whoo-hoo!
