The first picture is of our garden, doesn’t look very impressive yet at a glance since it has been quite water-logged lately but this week’s beautiful weather has been making it very happy. #2 is of some of my favorite Tiger

Happy Birthday Toby!

Tomorrow(June 10th) is the actual 4 year mark for this big boy but yesterday was quite the celebration! He is soooo in tractor heaven right now after the crazy amount of them he was given at his party. He came into our room at 6:00a.m. this morning wanting to know if he could go play

Allergist Appt. #1

We saw the allergist today. Went over the basics. Nothing earthshattering or that we didn’t already know or haven’t already talked to a doctor about.
