I am a boy mom!

The M.O.B. Society is hosting the first annual Boy Mom BlogHop. Since I am the mom of three boys I thought I would join in the fun. If you are visiting from the BMBH, welcome!

Mothers of Boys

Hello to all the visitors from the BMBH! I am so happy that you are here. I am Erica. My amazing husband is Chris. We started dating in high school twenty years ago. He still makes me laugh as much as he did when we were teenagers. You can read ten facts about me and my better half here.

Yarn Along

Joining Ginny for Yarn Along this week.

I am still working on the baby blanket, and it is coming along nicely. The color is way off in this picture. It looks washed out for some reason. I hope to finish the blanket by Yarn Along next week.

When my sister-in-law asked me if I wanted her old couch, my first response was not a positive one. Where would we put? Did we really need another couch? What would my husband say about me bringing home his sister's old couch? After all, she has seven children and six of them are boys! The couch had been used well and abused more.

Out of the garden

The onions, green and banana peppers, shallots, and bush beans have all come on.

I am still working on the baby blanket. It is coming along slowly, but I really enjoy knitting it.

At The Beach

We love spending time at the beach, and we are fortunate enough to live within a short driving distance to many beach vacation spots. Often we will pack up my sister-in-law's twelve passenger van early in the morning and head for the beach to spend the day with family and friends. While most people head for the busy beaches with the boardwalks, shops, restaurants, and rides, our favorite place is a small beach on the bay side. The beach is often empty so the kids can run and roam around without disturbing the serious sunbathers that crowd the popular beaches, and they are able to explore and play with no fear of injury from massive waves. We enjoy our days at the beach so much.

The kids were so excited when they found this crab.

Endless Summer Love

Our Endless Summer Hydrangea bushes are one of my favorite things. We have ten planted in front of our home.
