- adults and kids can play together
- adult sobriety not required (great party game)
- it's portable
Some day we will paint the boards, but we had a lot of fun with this game this weekend! Click here for directions on building your own set, and rules of the game: Cornhole game

We removed the crib from Nate's room on Monday. He's 2 years 3 months, and I caught him climbing into the crib, was afraid what would happen if he climbed out. I got him a cute little toddler bed, but he wiggles too much in his sleep, he would fall off of it and wake up several times a night. (it's only a few inches high, not tall enough to hurt him, but enough to wake him - and yes, we had the rails up). I was debating what to do with the toddler bed since it wasn't working, and Ken solved the problem for me by sitting on it - toddler beds are made to support toddlers, not adults. I seem to have bad luck with toddler beds. When Alex graduated from the crib, I got him one of those big racecar beds and decorated his room to match with checkered flag curtains and all. After two weeks of sleeping on it, my back was killing me. (because my 15 month old would not stay in bed unless mommy was there with him)
So, twin mattress on the floor it is, until he's big enough for a bed. I'm happy to have the space the crib occupied for toys and organization, all my extra wire cubes are coming in handy for toys. But I'm sad to see the crib go. I loved the crib set so much, it was so cute. My baby is NOT a baby any more. I don't want to wish away a second of his childhood, but I would not complain if diapers went next . . .

The garden is coming along! I have so much fun checking every day to see the progress. The end closest to the camera is doing best, I think because it gets more sun, Ken thinks because it gets more water. Probably both. I'm psyched! I added a few more things. 3 kinds of tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, onions, jalapeno peppers, pimento peppers, bell peppers, radishes, carrots, basil, sage . . . so far everything but the carrots have sprouted!

The reason we drove to Florida last week was to attend the wedding of Ken's youngest brother, Jason, to Jessica. It was a wonderfully relaxed and fun wedding, I truly enjoyed myself, as did all of the children. I believe everyone had a great time! Of all the photos I took, this is my favorite, of our 2yo Nate and our 3yo neice Mackenzie. I'm including pix of all the kids, notice Kyle got to play with the band a little at the reception!
I have to say that I just love going to weddings now. They make me happy, remembering my own wedding and how much I enjoyed it, and how happily married I am to Ken. I love that man!!
