7 quick takes (7th edition)

* 1 *
We had a wonderful weekend last weekend in Houston!  Hosted a shower for my good friend Lorena and spent time with my best friend Christina visiting from NJ.  The 3 of us were roommates our senior year and haven't had that much time together in years!  It was great!!

Nate has successfully raised over $1100 for the Texas Alliance for Life Walk tomorrow.  You can sponsor him here to help increase our total!!

* 3 *
I organized a successful field trip for our Mornings with Mommy group at our church - our local fire station.  My term as co-leader is coming to an end this month and it has been lots of fun helping other moms in the parish grow in their faith life and in their vocation as wives and mothers.

In addition to learning how to climb out of his crib (which has now been converted to a toddler bed), Nate  had a face-first splash in the baby pool.  I was there to sweep him right up and he went back into the water like nothing happened.

* 5 *
I booked our tickets to go up to PA in a couple weeks!  Nate will spend his 2nd birthday surrounded by his great grandparents, grandparents and great aunts and uncles.  Hopefully it will be a little cooler too!

* 6 *
The garden is doing well.  I'm glad I like cucumbers, there seems to be one ready every day!  The tomatoes are doing great too, but I think something got to our squash - all the plants have died.  I did plant some watermelon, so that has begun to sprout.  And it looks like we can harvest our garlic any day!

Found that an evening just to chat with the girls, dessert and a bottle of wine can really refresh you!

Alexis, our squash would rot every year for the past 3-4 years just like yours. I'm not sure if it's a bug or a fungus, but I suspect b/c this past spring was cooler without too much rain, the squash plants fared better. We harvest 8-10 zuccchini per week, and that's just off of ONE plant! I hope you have better luck next year.
