Walkabout yesterday

I do live in the greatest area ever. It's spring and its getting beautiful. Now if the wind would just stop blowing! Here is a sample of what I found yesterday:

From the parks

To the orchards

To the flora and fauna, I'm pretty darn lucky

The puppy's new crib turned out pretty good. She comes home on May 8th.
We done a LOT of work in the yards this Spring already!
The back is looking really good and so is the front. (The dirt patch is where the swing set used to be, it will grow back.) Lots of hard, manual labor involved, but it felt good. It's great to be able to work hard and feel sore.

Kind of like hockey (only not really). I sure do miss hockey.

First camping of the season

Very pretty nearly full moon

Grandma & Grandpa stopped by with s'mores fixin's, because what's camping without s'mores?

Despite the wind, we had a really good time camping. Who knew it was a nearly full moon? We only went for one night to see how and if everything worked, but it was fun. Can't wait to go again. I even drove the camper home to see how hard it is .... It's not so hard! I might be able to do this thing on my own!

It was a very nice morning so I went out for a walk. I am glad I did. It turned windy this afternoon.

We had a pretty full Spring Break. A friend overnight, a cousin over for the day and me off work for nearly two weeks. Travel to Seattle, Issaquah and Portland. And then home. Afternoon at the video arcade, afternoon at the Pacific Science Center and an afternoon at Dave Ramsey LIVE.

We planned some of our summer vacation camping destinations and tried to find somewhere to go during Memorial Day (hahaha!) I did find out a group of my hockey friends go camping nearby so we might-can tag along with them. We are pretty excited about this camping thing :) I went and picked up all our tent-camping stuff today so we can go through it and see what we can us in the camper and what we need to buy. We have not told the kids yet, but we are going to take it out on Saturday to test all the hookups. I think they will be excited!  I know I am!

We have a little project

 Get it all level
 Fill it in
Add more and more to make a 12'x12' pad for the new kennel
But first, we had to load and unload 120 of those 12"x12"x2" blocks. Whoee-baby, they were heavy!

It is going to look great when it is done tho!

Oh, and this arrived yesterday too:
Kind of a crap shot from my phone, but you get the idea. We're Campers now!

Best Friends

My Hannah had a rough day at school today. Aiden (whom she loves) didn't want to be her best friend anymore. That and quite a few late nights in a row have made her a mess this afternoon. Luckily she got to bring "Baby Jesus" home. Each of the kids have had the opportunity since Christmas to bring him home overnight. Hannah had missed her turn somehow but today got that chance. So she has been playing with him for a couple hours while Bubba and I cleaned (and I mean CLEANED) his room. I am looking forward to the day he realizes how much easier life is if things are cleaned up regularly and arranged neatly and stuff like that. I know, it could be YEARS.
