Oh, Happy Day!

Spring is here...and we had a wonderful weekend!

The hubs decided to kick off Spring with a major project. He spent the afternoon pulling out all the hedges in front of our house. When he was done, our front yard looked naked. The house looked bigger, though! Those monstrous hedges were hiding half of our home! He finished quickly, with the help of a friend, but there's still a lot of work to be done. He has to dig out the roots, and then do some landscaping with some smaller shrubs and flowers. The absence of the hedges did showcase the fact that we now need to power wash the house, and paint some trim!

Dylan and Lexie were amazed at the mountain of hedges.


On Saturday evening, we attended the baptism for Grant's cousin's daughter, Bella. I offered to take some pictures during the baptism. Little Bella looked so beautiful in her gown! It was a great service.

When we arrived home, a friend came over with his son. Dylan and Lexie were so excited to play with Jack. Lexie was the first to decide play time was over, by declaring that it was time for bed. When she gets tired, she drops whatever she's doing, and heads to bed.

Spring was definitely in the air today. It was warm enough to wear shorts, and we spent several hours outside, enjoying the warmth and the sun.

It was a beautiful day for an anniversary! 11 years ago, today, Grant and I began dating!

On a more emotional side, my nephew's horrific car accident was 9 years ago, today. It was a terrible time for my nephew and our family, but miraculously, he survived. We are so blessed to have him here with us.

Grant's parents and grandma stopped over for a visit this afternoon, and we had dinner together. Grant's mom just got back from Florida, and had souvenirs for all of us. We had a great time. We truly enjoy Sunday afternoons with Grant's family.


Lexie entertained us with her singing skills. Future American Idol?

My princess insisted on wearing her "bootiful" dress again today. At least she skipped the high heels that we fought over yesterday, and opted for rain boots!

Dylan wasn't up for having his picture taken today. He's usually a willing subject, so I can't complain! He got in a lot of baseball practice. He is so excited for T-ball to begin next month!

Lexie decided that she had to learn to play baseball!

After a few pitches hit her forehead, Daddy had to step in for a little tutorial.

I think she liked getting bonked on the head! After each pitch to the forehead, she started giggling, and said, "Oh no, not again!"

We're all happy to welcome Spring into our lives! We're looking forward to many days of fun in the sun!

Happy Spring!
