The Garden Tour.

May 4, 2009

We participated in a neighborhood garden tour yesterday, which was really fun. It gave us the excuse to finish up some things in the yard that had been left un-done and we were able to meet tons of new people (the best part). Three painters came and set up in our yard while the tour was going on, which was also a nice aspect of the afternoon. Both C-Man and JuJu were inspired to do their own painting:

(the tongue indicates intense concentration)

C-Man set up his first lemonade stand and made a few dollars...pretty good considering he was charging a penny a cup (for fresh-squeezed, no less)! But he got a bit bored with the lemonade stand and parade of neighbors (about 500!), and decided to strip down completely naked and go for a swim. Nice.

When he got out, I managed to slip a pair of undies on him (he wouldn't put anything else on) and then went to the herb garden and started picking handfuls of chives and eating them as people passed by. Occasionally he would offer some to neighbors. I don't think anyone took him up on it. Again, nice. We have such a nerd-ly little boy. And we love it. :-)

  1. that is fabulous! and let's hear it for the nerdy kids. I've got two of them myself and couldn't be happier! the other day when i went to pick up diego from nursery for the first time all year he professed he had a 'best friend' luca. when i asked the teacher which was one was luca she pointed to the tiniest boy in the class, and the only one with a dummie in his mouth. she looked at him and looked at me and confessed 'it makes sense they are best buds, they are two calmest mommies boys of the class'! all of that coming from a nun?! hilarious.

  4. that C-man - he's a card! Love the picture of him picking the chives in the herb garden in his undies. (And NOW I understand why you came up with these little monikers instead of their real names!) ;-)
