Lovin the weather!

I got this roll recipe from Michelle and it is awesome and so fast to make. You must try these! The are called Lion House Rolls. You can click here for the recipe.

We planted a small garden this year. It started like this...
and after Flint hauled in over a TON of dirt...with Cooper helping
It started looking like this...(we had to do an elevated garden here, because the soil is so bad!
Planting squash(several kinds), cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes, peppers, and green beans
Now we have to just WAIT until we can have some yummy veggies to eat!
The weather has been so beautiful here, we have gone and done something outside EVERYDAY last week. It was so FUN!
This is Cooper and I at Papago park.

This is Flint and Arlee. Flint was scared of these GEESE, as you can tell he is getting ready to turn and run away. I was LAUGHING so hard!

Cooper found this window to sit in where he thought he was safe from the geese!

We hiked...more like walked up to the HOLE IN THE ROCK in Tempe. It was cool to lookout over the entire valley. It was so awesome. Cooper loved the climb all over the rocks.

SO lately Cooper has decided that he doesn't need help saying his bedtime prayers. He does a GREAT job. However sometimes he goes on big tangents (wonder who he gets that from?) It is hilarious sometimes what gets blessed at our house. Tonight was NO exception. This was my most favorite phrase EVER! "and please bless Grandma Haymore that she will obey and do her chores and please bless her that she will eat her vegetables and be reverent at church and bless her that she can remember to choose the right!" I couldn't help it I laughed right out loud. He just kept going on and on and on blessing Grandma Haymore! We love our Grandma!
Cooper is learning to read and loves it! Arlee loves books, so Cooper reads to Arlee pretty much EVERYDAY. It makes me so happy when he is doing something nice for her instead of TEASING her! Who would have thought...5 years apart and they still fight! He is such a good boy!
