Puppy Love | 2012

 Drum roll please, ahem, here is our new puppy (A St. Bernard who's now 9 weeks) Sergeant! Is he not the most adorable thing ever!?
He came all the way from North Carolina on a flight last Saturday and arrived later that evening.

                           I'm sort of in love!
                        He can be serious,
                              He can be goofy,
                               He can be naughty, and....
                                    Just plain adorable at times!
            Our other dog, Ranger (A yellow lab) is enjoying this nice sunny day with Sergeant. I know I sure am!
                                          They're best buds!
              Sure they may fight a little, but in the end Ranger loves having a buddy.

 I'm just loving this spring whether! My rhubarb is starting to grow finally! I love making rhubarb pies. Let's see, how can I explain rhubarb pie. Hmm....  I know! It's like summer in a pie. What do y'all like to do with rhubarb?
      I'm super excited our apple tree is in bloom! Nothing like fresh organic home-grown apples! Right?
                                     My horse Paisley mowin' on hay.
Is it just me or do y'all love the sound of rivers, creeks, and oceans as much as I do!? The sound of the water makes you want to just drift off in la la land. This is where I spend my summer days, by the creek. The sound of the branches swaying as the sun peaks through to say hello sends you into sleepy mode. Well at least it does for me.
  This hammock, I cannot say enough great things about it. I love just laying in it! Whether it'a listening to the birds chirp, watching the water from the creek flow over the rocks, or my hair getting in a tangled mess by the wind. It's these moments of spring that I love!
                                Budding leaves! (*Yay!!*)
What is your favorite thing about spring/summer?

Free Ski Week | 2012

Hey there, hope everyone had an awesome week. I sure did! We had our 2nd annual free ski week at our place. Our ski resort (only 20 minutes away) hosts a Toyota free ski week. What's better than skiing or snowboarding for a whole week with friends for free!? I'd say pretty much nothing. If you've never tried before, you really should! Anyways, so on Sunday everyone arrived and we got so catch up. Then we headed off on a walk to the gym which is about a mile away. 

            The kids had this game where they would run away from the goose when ever it would honk.    

                                             Future cowboys

    The three people that got hurt. Everyone agreed afterward that they should've saved the crazy tricks for the end of the week.

     Aren't these little cupcakes adorable!?

                        Isaiah fell and a skiier slid across his hand and slit it.
                                      He sure looks happy for being hurt.

                             What's fun without dancing!?

                           Oh say hello to our new addition to our family... a puppy St. Bernard!

                          Is he not the cutest thing you ever saw?

                         Like the "circus" tent we rented, it sure was what we needed with all those people!

The week went by so fast, and was a blast! Can't wait till next year.
