Antique Rose Emporium

Our Summer of Awesomeness kicked off on Sunday.

We took the kids to the Antique Rose Emporium for Garden Day.

It was beautiful and so much fun. The Rose Emporium has now been officially added to the places the Hendricks will frequent. What a treasure not very far from home!

The kids picked vegetables, planted flowers, learned about herbs and butterflies, and then explored all over the gardens. We took so many pretty pictures.

We came home with a caterpillar, several cocoons, and lots of snails.

Once we got home, we cut up all our veggies the kids picked, threw them in a skillet, cooked them...and they ate them for a quick snack before church.

Eggplant, potatoes, green beans, zucchini...these kids were eating machines. I'm telling you...there's something magic about homegrown food. Well...there's magic in most homegrown food...all the kids still refused to eat the tomatoes. Who cares though...Aaron's mom and I didn't want to share the tomatoes with the kids anyway. We liked having them all to ourselves.
