Trees!

I love that our neighborhood is starting to have more trees! We found a good deal on some beautiful maple trees today, and purchased two. They are pretty tall, about 12'. The kids had a great time helping plant them. Ellorie's is a sugar maple she named "Sugary Shady Allen", and Mason's is an "Autumn Blaze" maple which he creatively named "Blaze Red Allen". Touching. It's so nice to have a few more trees in the yard. And more to come soon!
The garden is coming along nicely as well. We try to eat something out of the garden at every meal when possible. I'm so excited for the tomatoes and beans to be ready. We're not quite there yet, but soon...
