Another fun trip to Colorado! It was so nice to enjoy a long weekend and not have anything to worry about. We stayed with Landon's cousins at the ranch house. It rained most of the time so we watched movies and enjoyed their new hot tub they put on the deck.

You can't have a road trip without treats.

Link eating said treats.
The view around the ranch!
Link and a dandelion.

Landon's cousin's little boy Paul, who is playing with Link on the slide, turned two so they had a fun party for him.
I was walking with Link and this cupcake and he decided that I was taking too long so he just shoved his face in the cupcake.

Link loved getting rides on the four wheelers.

Landon's cousin collects guns and he has this gigantor one. I'm can't remember what it's called but it was so loud.

Poor Landon. Anytime we go to Colorado something on him gets swollen. Last time it was that hangy thing in the back of your throat. It was so weird it got huge. Kinda gross. Then this time his eye got all swollen. We'll see what happens next time.

We're back

Back to the blogging world. We've been so busy lately that our poor blog had to suffer for a while.

So it's summer! Don't you just love this time of the year? I think as I get older I like it more and more. Since it's been warm out we've got to work on our yard. For those of you who don't know we live in quite the fixer upper. Since we've been working on other parts of the house the front yard has been enjoying the back burner. not anymore. We put our sprinkling system in last fall so that come spring time we could bust out our landscaping skills right away. It's been so fun deciding where we are going to put our flower beds and buying flowers. We got some free grass last fall we put down that we thought would cover most of the front lawn but ended up only covering about 1/4, it looked pretty interesting...lets just say we wouldn't be winning yard of the month, but hey you can't pass up free grass. I'm not complaining. Last night we seeded the rest so I am excited to announce that in a few weeks I will have a front lawn! Woo hoo! Here's a few pictures of our up and coming front yard. We are also working on our dining room and when that's finished I'll be posting some before and after picture. It will be a.w.e.s.o.m.e.

Heidi planted this flower pot for me for mother's day.

Landon made me this cute garden box for my birthday. I love it. :)

They don't look like much now, I'll post some more pictures in a few months.

We'll be adding some more bushes and flowers here.
