Gideon is FIVE!

We celebrated this little astronaut turning five today! He's come a long way from the NICU.  We were slated to be at BreZaak's when Gideon was born. At that time, we knew the family was going to migrate to Alaska over the summer.  JaRissa were already up here. Michael and I came up to buy a home we could all land in while we found jobs etc. While up here we got a call and Bre was in labor - early. Gideon is full of surprises!  And this means we have LIVED here for nearly FIVE years! 

I didn't take many pictures, but the cookie Bre made and decorated was cute AND yummy!  ACK - Mom has the camera in my face. LOL 
Annie and Uncle Nolan 

We are still so excited and blessed to live close enough to attend birthday parties for the grands! GG got up and came with us. I was excited to get him out of the house - the first time in 3 weeks. 

Yes, Stacia and I did spend time in the garden before the party. Michael came out too and hacked away at a tree/bush in the middle of the west side of the garden space. 

Today's essentials

We planted 7 hills of Delicata squash, 4 hill of yellow summer squash, and 6 hills of Kabocha squash (Japanese pumpkin I love).  

Millie had to be chained up today. She simply couldn't behave. 90% was accident - but we've put in a lot of hard work, and I didn't want her leaping through beds. The only places left to tackle in the garden are the wilds of the west week. 

The chickens love the watermelon rinds...I'm still amazed how Pietro stands watch over the hens while they eat all the treats. 

Something is getting into the Bok Choy. I turned the leaf over and don't see any bugs or slugs. Most of the little holes are in the middle of the leaves. Any ideas what is causing it and what I can do about it? 

It's been another beautiful day up here. It was 81* in our yard.  We watched a Hallmark mystery and called it a day...or will shortly.
