As I'm starting to actually think about getting ready for baby #2, I can't help but wonder what he will look like. Wade looks SO much like his daddy, I wonder if #2 will follow in his brother's footsteps.

What do you think?

5 years and counting...

Five years ago today, Phil and I were married. It was the best decision I have ever made in my life, and I am so lucky to be with my best friend forever. Here's to many more happy years to come!



We have done other things this summer other than spend time in the garden. More often than not though, I forget to take the camera. Wade has turned into a little fish this year, and we find ourselves loving pool time.



For my Father-in-Law

There is an unwritten rule in the Broadbent family...that is, to be a TRUE Broadbent you must love this fruit:

Do you know what they are? Yup, boysenberries. For those of you who are saying "what in the world is a boysenberry?" it is a mix between a blackberry and a raspberry. Phil grew up eating them and has been so excited to watch them grow in our backyard.
My Father-in-Law has also been consistent in asking how the berries are growing, so I'm sure the pictures will make him a bit jealous (they live in Houston and can't grow them there).
Now, what to make with them...pie, cobbler, jam, ice cream? Hmmm, so many options.

How to make a happy husband


*Note: While completing this process you must be sure to use every bowl and pot in the kitchen. You must also admire the new faucet your husband so expertly installed for you that will make doing dishes so much easier, and remember to thank him again later.

And finally, you must remember to enjoy the moment when your husband comes home and smiles as he takes a bite of fresh strawberry jam on homemade bread.
