This and That


  1. Maria’s dad planted a bunch of tulips with the boys last fall and they were excited for them to come up. We will plant more this year.

  1. Happy Birthday to Josh! I love the tulips and it’s so sweet that Caleb and Maxwell helped Maria’s dad plant them. Love the sandals recommendation.

  2. What part of L.A. will you be visiting? It’s a huge place made even bigger by ridiculous drive times. We don’t measure instance by miles, but by how long it takes to get there.

  3. Josh – Happy Birthday! I plant more bulbs every year & it’s so fun when they come up. Try some daffodils & alliums too.
