Happy Mothers Day !

Due to the fact that there will be nothing coming in the mail for our mothers we thought we could atleast do a blog post for mother's day! We have been in search for something we could send you from online, like flowers, or gift baskets for the past week or two, however, nothing was good enough (or, should I say good enough and economically feasible). So we hope you accept our love until Daniel is making the big bucks and we can get you a car or something really grand for mother's day!

On our last trip to reading market we had to stop by the amish bakery that has the best cheesecake we have ever eaten, so delicious I am currently on the quest to find a cheesecake recipe that tastes the same. I have tried out 4 different recipes so far and no match. I will let you know as soon as I discover the secret combination.

There is another Amish store at the market that sells different 'cheese powders', which are basically like the kraft macoroni and cheese powder in bulk. We bought three different containers which we have yet to begin to use, so if you have any ideas let me know.

Also, me and dan have currently become intrigued with the idea of some day having a bee hive and producing honey when we move back to washington. This is a cute honey shop at the market.

About two months have gone by since we started our summer garden. This year we decided to start our seedlings indoors. So far I feel as if it has stunted their growth being kept in little sectioned containers, but we will judge how well this has worked by when we get our first 'harvest'. So far we have planted some herbs (cilantro, basil, rosemary, chives) and vegetables (peas, corn, onions, hot peppers, green peppers and tomatos).

And here is a random pic of some nice blossoming trees from a few weeks ago when I went on a service trip with the youth.

The following are some old pictures of our last DC trip, we found a really nice hotel for cheap.

There were a few smithsonians we weren't able to visit last summer with family that we were able to check out this time. Inside one of the smithsonians:
