While we were at Lowe's, we also picked up some seeds for planting. Last year, Ché and I planted and took care of some pumpkin plants. He had a great time, and when it was finally time to pick them, he didn't want to, because I had spent all summer telling him to leave them alone! Ché also picked out a watermelon plant. These things are $.97. They are a paper cup, with a peat round, and some seeds in it. You plant and wait, then take the whole paper cup out and plant it in the yard. I think this year, we may actually till up some ground (sorry Daddy) and see if we can make the plants grow a bit better. Last year with two pumpkin plants we got 4 pumpkins, so maybe this year, with 2 plants we can get some more. I have to say, I think Ché was more excited about the plants than the periscope, but hey, whatever floats his boat!
We also took Ché swimming, and he made it a whole lap on his own (with appropriate flotation device attached). Next week we should be back in our normal pool, the warm pool.
Hope your weekend was as good as ours!
