Rest Day Randoms – garden, pre-school, cameras, Jason Mraz, birthday

1. We harvested our gardens last weekend. We have a garden at home and then a couple of plots at the Community Garden where we grew squash, onions, and cucumbers. We needed to use the Chariot to bring home all the squash.

At home I picked tomatoes, leeks, patty pan squash, and eggplant. We also have about a million hot pepper plants but I let Andrew pick those.

2. Lincoln started pre-school on Monday. It’s only one day a week but he loves it, and I love the few hours of “alone” time. Teagan is great company.

3. We have gotten lazy about taking pictures with our real camera ever since we got our iPhones. It’s so much easier and more convenient to snap a picture with the phone and then instantly send it to someone via text, email, facebook, twitter, etc. But I’m trying to be better about taking pictures again and this is one of my recent favourites.

4. Jason Mraz, live in concert, Friday night, Vancouver. Oh yes! I. am. excited.

5. A big Happy 33 Birthday to my wonderful husband! I’m going to the concert without him. His present is a night with his two kids :)

He is the best husband and father a girl could ask for.

Don’t be fooled by the picture though.

He’s not really a cowboy.

But he likes to dress the part for special occasions.

Happy weekend!


  1. I’m the same way – iphone pics only. I can’t remember when I took a pic with my real camera. I have a little bit of an instagram habit too! ;)

    Happy B-day to your hubs! That’s awesome that you get to go out for his birthday!!!

  2. I was just thinking the same thing about camera phones and how rarely I take my 35mm anymore. I’m obsessed with instagram!

    Happy birthday to your husband!

  3. Happy weekend to you too! I would love to see Jason Mraz!

    I’ll be in BC come late October :)

  4. I hate using my iPhone camera because we still have the OLD 3GS that has crappy photo quality. I’m pretty sure once we upgrade next month to the new iPhone 5 I’ll be MUCH happier!
    Happy Birthday to your hubby & I hope you have fun at the concert! :)

  5. Have fun- that should be a great concert! I am with you on using my iphone for 95% of pics. Oops. I should at least upgrade to the newer one. ; So jealous of that garden!!

  6. Oh happy birthday to your hubby!! I too like to do pics with my phone. I am slacking in the photo department lately….
