New wheels

We scored ourselves new bikes.  Now, hopefully, we can make use of this fancy trailer we bought when Erin was small.  Inaugural ride to the "cocoa" store went smoothly on the way there, but Brian had to go get the car because Robin just wasn't having it on the way back.  Erin was chillin' like Bob D. Any tips for getting Robin more comfortable in the trailer?

Garden miscellany

We planted a few veggie starts late this spring.  So far, the crop has been pathetic.  Erin's showing our first (and only so far) squash. 

I think she's singing to it.  We made a small batch of squash pancakes which were delicious.  We also harvested 3 barely ripe cherry tomatoes.  Slim pickings here, folks.  Good thing there's an awesome farmers market here. 

We also set the girls digging in the back yard.  Never too early to start on chores, right? I have this idea we'll plant some fruit trees back there - one apple, one pear, one cherry, one orange.  Then the birds will have plenty to eat. 

Of course, there are always work breaks for silliness.
