Now, just like Becky and me, Patrick and Zeke are the best of friends. And although one would assume Zeke would grow tired of Patrick trying to "have his way with him" (wink, wink, nudge, nudge) all of the time, he never seems to mind much. He realizes that Patrick is just going through a faze, and he cheerfully humors Patrick his rather exuberant humping and pumping ways. Friendship at its best!

On Sunday, after Becky, Justin, and Zeke departed, Kieran spied Heron watering some broccoli seedlings he had just planted in the garden. He decided he wanted daddy to sprinkle him with the hose. His dad agreed, and he ran off to put on his shorts. It was truly one of the hottest days we have enjoyed this spring, and Kieran was really embracing it in his little short shorts!

I took the opportunity to finish up a skirt I had been working on. I basically followed the easy A-line type skirt pattern in One-Yard Wonders, but made it a bit longer and added a little pocket.
|I added a little blue bias tape detail on the pocket. I think the pocket was a nice addition that I will actually use.|
I think I would definitely whip up some more skirts from this pattern. It sewed up incredibly quickly and has a simple elastic waist band. And isn't the fabric pretty? Another Marden's find. What do you think? Like it?
