It’s been awhile…

Well apparently not much has been going on in the Foster household lately...  But I figured we could update you about our garden we are making and about Mikey's half marathon he ran with Jim a few weeks ago.

The garden is really just a area of dirt with only a few red onions planted at the moment, but we have plans to plant a lot more.  There are going to be peas, beans, zucchini, squash, carrots, corn and some herbs!  We should probably start planted them soon, but with all the SNOW we have been getting lately, we are going to hold out for another week or so!

We spent a lot of time digging up the grass and really stubborn weeds growing in the middle of our garden.  Above is the progress 1/2 way, and then me finishing up below. 


 Then about Mikey's race, it was the Horsetooth Half Marathon in Fort Collins.  Jim ran it when he was in college and somehow talked Mikey into running it this year.  It was a really foggy drive up to Fort Collins, but by the time the race started all the fog finally rolled away!  He ran it in 2 hours and 20 minutes!!  And that was even after I made him eat ice cream with me the night before!

Mikey and his medal! 

They were giving away hot dogs after the race, Mikey really enjoyed his!
