What have we been up to lately?

Yard Work! Well not as much as we would like, (thanks to the mother nature and the rain!) but while the warm weather teased us for a week or so, we went to work on our yard. Olivia was our little helper that managed to get right into the digging. (For some reason she used her mouth to move the dirt!)

The weeds were almost as tall as Olivia. She actually really like that though.

She was right in on all the action too. Making sure that she didn't miss a minute of being outside.

In order to get rid of the weeds, we rented a machine to get the job done a little quicker. Unfortunately, we had a bump in the road and the machine got stuck ...(And no, for all those wondering, It wasn't me!)

Luckily our neighbor Tyler, was having a party with all his high school friends that same evening and they brought there muscles over and helped us get it out along with another neighbor who pulled it out with his truck!

And eventually it was free and we were all happy!

Olivia looks so grown up! I love her little piggy tails!!

Maybe you should have been the one to handle the machine instead of Chris.... Nah!

I'm loving the cool whip container holding the flowers!

Wow, I need one of those machines for our garden boxes :). Glad you guys had some help - especially little miss Olivia, who I'm sure loves to "help" outside as much as our kiddos. She is a cutie! Can't wait to find out if she will have a sister or brother!?!
