Wagon & Dirt

Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy a wagon and that's almost the same. 
(Also, I didn't know that wagons don't come with the wheels attached.) 
I'm quite proud of putting it together by myself and Eleanor was all kinds of thrilled. 
The box said 1 1/2 years+, but this adorable 9 month old was an instant expert at wagon riding. We bought dirt to start filling the raised beds and all afternoon yesterday we spent hauling bags of soil through the back yard. I am absolutely certain that I won't be able to grow anything in the garden that is more beautiful and cheery than this girl. 
20 bags of top soil & compost so far and I'm going to guess that we need 30 more to fill the beds properly. We will finish that tomorrow (my Explorer isn't the best method of hauling soil, so we're waiting for Drew & his truck to be home) and let it settle for a few days before I plant. I'm so excited to see what we can grow (and eat!) this year!
