Last weekend was my birthday (I turned 28 for the 8th time) and Charley and I celebrated by having a big crowd come over for a BBQ. Charley cooked his famous BBQ ribs and I bake a beautiful coconut lime cake. Fun was had by all.

Yesterday, after several hours working in the yard, Charley and I decided to take a break to take the dogs to the dog park. On the way to the dog park we stopped at Maggie Moo’s for some ice cream. I ran in while Charley waited in the car with the dogs.

As you can see, it’s gorgeous…constructed of redwood and complete with surrounding brick patio (which isn’t quite done yet, but it's pretty close). Last weekend I helped him lay some of the bricks and install a drip irrigation system before planting the leggy, gangly tomato plants I’ve been attempting to keep alive indoors. We don’t get very much direct sunlight in our house so it’s been a challenge keeping them healthy…only time will tell if being outside will improve there condition. But there’s always tomato plants at Home Depot, so they’re easily replace, I suppose.
I also planted zucchini, patty pan squash and beet seeds. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the squash plants mature in time to harvest before the first frost.
