Happy Mother's Day & Fresh From the Farm

Happy Mother's Day to all the mommies out there! I hope your day was a good one.

We spent yesterday at Cypress Garden's for my company's picnic. It was *SO* hot. But the kids had fun. Blake & I got on the new roller coaster they have called the Starliner. The website says the drop is 70 feet and the speed is 70 mph. I'm sure to any coaster enthusiasts out there that is nothing. But to a non-coaster lover who is afraid of hights, it was plenty! I had my eyes shut almost the entire time, so I dont know what Blake was doing, lol.

And on to Fresh From the Farm... How many eggs do you think is in this measuring cup?

Two. Both light brown and slightly larger than Chicken Dinner's normal eggs. Both had 2 yolks.
And what about this one?

This is one egg. The big one from my previous post. Three yolks in one egg!
Our garden is sprouting things like crazy. We've got tiny bell peppers, some tomatoes, onions and green beans so far. The cucumbers are blooming and the corn is growing pretty big. But tonight we had some fresh green beans.

And out back, the blackberries are ripening nicely! I've gotten several handfuls so far, but there are quite a few that are too grown up to get to at this point.

Have a great week everyone!

Wow.. looks like you had fun, and have some great stuff growing.. It's still been to cold up here for us to even plant anything yet!

I'm so envious of your fresh produce already--we had a freeze warning on Saturday night and there is a winter storm warning out for a storm that is coming in tonight. Seriously! I live in Colorado, not Alaska, for crying out loud! LOL Those berries look absolutely delicious!

Thanks for the egg yolk update! ;)
