Some things we've done lately.
Grown a rubber cobra (gifted to Bastian from Piddy Peddy for his birthday) in an otherwise useless 2-liter Pilsner glass of water to 600 times its size on the dining room table (it made quite the attractive centerpiece).
Acquired four pairs of hologram/3D glasses from seeing Up. The kids find them useful for dress-up, I guess.
Planted pumpkin seeds with Papa.
Papa built a jacked-up birdsnest of a trellis to support our five-million cucumber plants.
The growing season is far too short in Cleveland, but our garden is off to a decent start. Hopefully by July or August we'll be overwhelmed with cucumbers, melons, beans, and tomatoes. Papa bought a dill plant with which to make lots and lots of pickles when the time comes.
