Lets Grow Some Sunflowers!

Want to join me on a fun adventure?
Lets grow some Sunflowers!

Now let me begin by telling you something, I have a black thumb. Elsa has her ice powers, I have the power to kill plants simply by being near them. Despite my best efforts, this is where plants and flowers come to die. I’m sorry. I have tried to change my ways, but have had no such luck yet.

So this spring/summer I thought it would be super fun for the boys and I to try to grow some Sunflowers. And maybe, just maybe, my children did not inherit my black thumb, and these flowers will actually stand a chance! Plus this is on our Spring Bucket List, so you know if we wrote it down, we have to do it.
And honestly, I love Sunflowers. They are beautiful and there is something about them that is just cheerful, don’t you think?

So here we go.
It is a little bit early to plant them. So according to a nice lady at the plant and flower store I could start growing them like this, then transplant them outside later.

So here it goes.

Now for the fun part, playing with dirt, I mean filling the little cup things with dirt. (I’m such a flower killer I am not even sure of the right names for these things, maybe it is just called a cup.)

And now to play with water. I mean water them. And done. (Things are always so much more fun when little boys are doing it. A simple “Please water the plants, turns into an all out water war.)

 Now to hope we get some little flowers out of these!

If you happen to know a ‘flower growing dance’ or something, let me know. Seriously, if you know any other gardening secrets please share! I need all the help I can get!

First Bonfire Of The Year

Well sort of it. More like a baby bonfire.
Ok. The truth, it was more like burning twigs and sticks from the yard.
I think to qualify as a bonfire it needs to be bigger and needs marshmallows. Pretty sure we can’t cross bonfire off of our Spring Bucket List yet.

Try not to look at the dead looking grass. My poor yard needs a lot of love this spring!

Spring Bucket List

It is finally starting to feel like Spring, which has finally gotten me excited about Spring and doing Spring things.

So here is our Family Spring Bucket List

Spring Bucket List

Spring Bucket List

1. Plant some flowers or vegetables.

2. Blow bubbles.

3. Dance in the rain. Complete with a sappy kiss in the rain with my husband. Because kisses in the rain are the best.

4. Fly a kite.

5. Bike ride.

6. Nature walk.

7. Feed the birds, and maybe some cute little chipmunks.

8. Have a bonfire. Complete with marshmallows!

9. Have a picnic, the whole sappy picture, blanket in the grass, cloud watching and all of that.

10. Spring Clean. (Oh the things you get excited about when you become a parent! Clean, de-clutter, re-organize, so much fun!)

Do you ever make Bucket Lists? Do you have any plans for the Spring? How will you enjoy the warmer weather?
