(Sterling is sitting on the bench far right-listening to a demo at the Prescott zoo...ooh snakes!)
Dacie may have her mom's genes, LOVE'ing to be outside working in dirt!
We replaced my FAVORITE broken rose bush (orange/yellow blossoms) with a light purple (the only other really cool color there).
The finished product of Dan's digging-our front landscaping!
The Irises, waiting to be transplanted from my friend Sherry Ullery's yard
The rocks that we collected from the river around the tree, and our planted bulbs!
The car load of friends helping us collect rocks at the river.
I went down to the river and collected as many red river rocks as I could find to line our trees at their bases. I could not fit the wheelbarrow in the car, so I carried them in my shirt and ruined my favorite workout shirt! After all that sweat I did not have enough..so Dan took the whole neighborhood ( 2 of Colton's friends), later on that day (with the wheelbarrow) and collected the rest of the rocks to finish up the last two trees.
I also went and priced and compared at a local nursery and Walmart, for our plants to finish up the landscaping in our yard...and ended up getting them all at Home Depot. I wished we had a truck that day-- as the lowered seats, dirt, and plants all over the back of the van was quite the fiasco by myself with Dacie.
Dan pretty much dug holes for the next two days, it seemed like, to get all the plants into place. He also hooked up a drip line to the plants, relocated the mulch out of our garden plot, and GOT TAN (at least that is what they told him at work on Wednesday).
Tuesday April 29- It was a mom's taxi cab day. While Dan still dug, I went and took Dacie to her 15-month check up!
I also planted about 50 or so bulbs of irises to line our white picket fence in front!
My phones for work were pretty busy! We worked until it got dark that evening, had pizza-calling it a family home DAY instead of evening! Showers were fought over!
Dacie weighed 22lbs. (she lost 2 pounds from her 12 month...the cleansing diet is working!-ha ha)
Here is Dacie w/ Dr. Wendy her pediatrician...and playing with the waiting room toys, not knowing that 2 shots lay ahead!
Our home away from home! Dr. Doxey's office
Dr. Doxey, Colton on laughing gas, and Grandma Sorensen, the dental assistant--working on Colton's tooth
Wednesday April 30- I tried to re-cover the inside of the house since we have been focusing on the outside. No luck--answered phones again for work! I also put away Colton, Sterling and Dacie's winter clothes and pulled out the summer ones. It is a JOB--and now I have to do some serious shopping for summer shoes, and husky shorts (Dan won't like that!)
My winning glasses-sporting my strep throat juice mix!
Thursday May 1- Happy May Day! I spent a large portion of the day on the phone 'fixing' a miscommunication about teams with the church co-ed softball. Not my favorite day. HOWEVER, Pokeeno made up for it that evening. I feel true love from my friends even when we don't agree. I always feel like a good person when I am around them! I won a set of cool glasses. It was a nice win since we were down to 2 adult glasses in our cupboard.
I was over the play-doh station that day..Sterling and I writing his name!
Snack time at preschool-good ol' raisins and low fat cheez-it's
Whew! I was ready for the day to be over by 12:oopm-- Spent some time on the phones AGAIN about softball drama and cried a few tears. Answered phones and went to bed early!
