Here it is, our afternoon out at the farm. Let me tell you I am so excited for Ellen, Eric and Leo. They are growing tomatoes to sell at the St. Paul Farmers market. Last year Ellen had planted a large garden just for the family. This year it is, to market to market! Anyhow I am really proud of her because really this is her dream and it is amazing to see people tackle their dreams. So with out further ado, here is a little photo tour.

Tractor rides and grass clipping piles and the makings of good friendships between 2 and half year olds!

Squash blooms

"We cute and we know it."

The garden is bigger than this picture, but just for you information there are 8 or 9 rows of tomatoes!

3 Months!

How time flies! We have already reached the 3 month mark for Ms. Milli.


You are such a cool girl you make your mama happy and proud all day. We have pretty good system going you and I. You coo and I fall in love just a little more. We went on a few adventures this month. We went to the zoo and a garden ( I even nursed you while we were weeding, because I am a hippie like that). You are so happy and quiet and sleep like 10 hours a night!!! Holy cow you rock little gal! You fit right in this little pod of people.

Love your,

happy day

i had been trying to teach Matias to say "happy fathers day". All he could get out was happy day. 3 years ago today was my happy day. When I married my true love. Happy Anniversary!!! We celebrated with a round of disc golf n' cafe latte. mmmmm...

Heavy Heart

(Matias 14 months)
When I think about something sad, I look at pictures of my kids to cheer me up. (Look at the kid above!) It gets my happy heart going.
Today I found out that a friend from college died. I found out yesterday that my uncle's neighbor wife is dying of cancer. My mom and I talk about her trip to New Orleans and how much people are still suffering from Hurricane Katrina. Our world sometimes seems hopeless and it gets me down.
As I look into my kids faces I hope to inspire in them that you get one life and you should use it to make the world a better place.
I was chatting with a co-working this morning and remembered planting a tree early in life for my friend Becky's mom who had died of cancer. Wow! I thought that was a long time ago. I am going to go and visit that tree. When I was 12, I had no idea why a tree was being planted, but now a tree seems like to perfect thing to do. I think that we will be planting a tree for my friend Dawn, so I can remember that life starts anew.

Nerd Alert

So I have been wanting to post this random thought all week.

Fact:Twitter is one of the main communication forms for the protesters in Iran.

Fact: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, recall the DA (Dumbledore's Army) has the special coins to communicate with.

Logical Conculsion: Twitter is magic in real life!

I looked at my google reader and I only have 2 subscribers and one is me. Thanks self for reading my lame blog.

You have a camera?

My Favorite shots from the last few weeks! The Vega's - picture taker

Yes, I will sit and hold up my head all on my own and you can not stop me people -Mili's inner dialog

2 month cuteness of the Milster

More please? Ok.

Comparison shot Matias 2 months!
Today, it is still raining here. REALLY?!?!?! Tomorrow has promises of sun and I am so ready for it. Yesterday Abby and I rocked a spin class and I am so sore. But all in all it felt really good to work that hard. The music was good and a good way to judge how hard I was pushing myself. Abby commented that the cheesier the song, the better I knew it. But I can't help that I am drawn to Ashley Simpson's music...Until next time.

Moving up and on

Hello, Neglected blog!

We have been busy. Last week at this time we were fighting 93 degrees and 60 percent humidity all that SC. Today we are experience a day that only MN can offer 70 and perfect. Although that rain can come any day now to overly dried out lawn.

The best thing about life right now is the fact that it is slow and easy. Enjoying time with child 1 and 2 are truly the best thing that life or money could offer at the moment. I love watching Matias and Miss Milli interact. Matias loves giving kisses and letting me know when Milli is crying followed by "Coming sister coming" (Insert heart melting here). Or when Matias is playing and asks "pizza mama?" Sure bud I will take pizza. Talking seems to be the development task getting the most attention. With three word sentences coming out. Which is exciting. Some Spanish is getting mixed in and that is really exciting. I am so jealous that my children will grow up bi-lingual. What a gift for them, I am sure they will NOT see it that way. Often wondering why their parents forced them to learn two languages. (Lammi's Finnish lessons come to mind or Greek School anyone?)

I will be posting pictures soon of the wedding an a little letter to milli for her 2 month birthday.

Unitl then...smiles
