Gardening Gabe

This past weekend, Gabe and I turned our oh-so-lovely weed garden (which by the way, has taken YEARS to grow!) into a cute little purple flower garden.  Gabe, our resident dirt tester, and made sure that all of the rocks from the surrounding garden beds were scattered throughout the other garden beds and all over the lawn.  He also conducted velocity testing while throwing handfuls of dirt everywhere, and smear tests when rubbing dirt on mommy's leg.  (He thought this was hilarious... mommy did not.)  Gabe was a great helper, and helped rake the weeds, pack the new dirt in, and even helped dig holes for the flowers to go in.  He was absolutely filthy and covered in dirt afterwards, and couldn't have been happier.  

He darn near took mommy's hand off with the shovel, so we switched to something less life threatening... like a spray bottle
Digging up the weeds
Packing in the new dirt
Grabbing yet another handful of dirt to throw
TA DA!!!  Our lovely purple flower garden.
