Arizona Spring Surprise

While a good portion of the country is still encased in ice, April is spring time in Arizona and the signs are all around...

Flowers on the front yard hesperaloe

Cactus are starting to bloom

Tomatoes are starting to come in

Whatever this is has buds on it

Young men's fancy turns to babies once again

Yes, that picture is true.  Can you believe it?  Our exciting news is that we may soon have fresh tomatoes!

Also, we're starting the process to adopt our second child...

Arizona Revised Statutes clearly prohibits tomato growing by any couple other than one man and one woman. It is my tea party duty to have to report this to the appropriate agency.

I'm very excited for you about the tomatoes and the adoption! It must be nice living in such a warm climate, where you don't have to worry about plants freezing! It's so great that your daughter will have a little brother or sister.

Love the comment about tomatoes only being allowed by hetero couples -- and then you just snuck in the baby #2 msg, dude! Baby #2 and 3 are the best (see how I mentioned #3, he he?!)
