Life Update!

So much has been happening lately that I have been taking photos to keep track. Since we have had such unseasonably warm weather for January, our garden has been growing like crazy. We expect rain tomorrow so that is wonderful news! 

This is what our local "lake" looks like:

Yeah, I know, right? Where the kids are standing was the middle of Folsom Lake last year. Crazy.

So does your family do game nights? We did the other night and while two of our number did not join in the fun, we had plenty of it anyway.

We played Phase 10 and played for hours and hours. We began with a single game of Rummikub and then jumped ship to Phase 10. What games do you like to play as a family?

One of the most exciting things to arrive here recently was 99 pounds of pork! It came in all shapes and sizes and all types (and yes, there is bacon!) We have been experimenting with this deliciousness and I can definitely say that home-grown is MUCH better than anything you get in the store! Have you ever bought a side of something?
