Spring is in the air...this week anyway

I love the warmth in the air right now, all I want to do is be outside!! Every time I say this out loud to my mom she laughs and says, "you poor girl you are going to be so miserable this summer". It's like she is jinxing me to have the worst, big, fat, hot, and miserable summer possible. Eish!
Anyway we have been working on our yard a lot this week. I have been obsessed with pulling weeds all week. I love pulling weeds its like therapy for me. Owen has been obsessed with getting the grass back to the green color it should be. We bought our first lawn mower--we were of course way to cheap to buy a real one, so we went with the hand held pushing kind. And the dogs have been obsessed with continually digging holes in the wet grass-and we love it-NOT!
Last Sunday after church we decided to go for a walk up in a canyon where the dogs could run around. It was really nice, a fun little nook we found. We went back up Sunday night and built a fire and had some yummy tinfoil dinners. It was really fun to just go together and let the dogs run around. Owen is just dying to get me to go camping up there with him. I am still just a little freaked out about camping out in the mountains like that. Thinking of all the animals out there just gives me the willies.
Of course Owen trying to find a way he can climb up

Hike to Red Caves

Hope everyone had a Happy Easter! We went to Orderville and had a great time spending time with family and friends. On Sunday after dinner we decided to go on a little hike to Red Caves with my family. We loaded up all the dogs and drove as far on the road as we could and set off on our adventure. We had a really good time. I will post a picture below of the boys trying to lift Max (my parent's dog) up some of the rocks. It didn't work out so well. So my mom, me and Tyler decided to stay behind with Max. It was fun to just relax in nice weather. Owen of course had to be all daring and try to climb every cliff he can find. I swear that kid, I wouldn't be surprised if that is how he dies someday.

Crazy boys...
We also started washing windows again for the summer on Monday. We had a good successful day and will now be busy doing this for the next couple months. Its funny when you do things like this because it is something that you do for everyone else and something that has never been done at our own house??
It was also Courtney one of my best friends from high schools shower/reception. We had a fun time at that and I am so excited for her!

On another note, I had another Dr. appointment today and things are good, great, and I guess wonderful too. I have been feeling soooo much better this week which has really been nice. So I will be 15 weeks on Friday. Yahoo!
