Cute Matthew

WOAH!!!!  Where did Matthew's head go!!!!

Animal visit day at daycare!!  Matthew loves Wednesday for this exact reason!

Sweet Nizana

I watched Nizana for a few weeks.  She is a super sweet golden and is 8 months old.  I really enjoyed her joy and sweet face and she was a pleasure to watch.

She did really well at the Salon while I got my hair cut and colored. 

I was sitting on the couch folding laundry and she was sitting across from me... I noticed after a long while that she was not moving... this was very unusual for her.... she never sits still.... then I realized that Matthew had left a piece of pizza on the floor.  Bless her heart, she had sat next to it for over a half hour and never touched it!!!  What a good puppy!

She was a very good girl at Matthew's karate studio!

One morning I was loading the car to take the boys to  school when I realized I hadn't seen Ethan or Nizana for a few minutes.... I finally found them.... they were together playing in the kennel up in my bedroom..... What a silly pair!!!

My nurse Amanda was super super happy to have a puppy back at work.... as were the rest of my colleagues!

Trying to lay calm at the sprinkler park..... it was a very hard task!

Watching the boys at the sprinkler park.... She really wanted to go play...

I loved looking at this face while I was at work!

She kept wanting to play with Bree but she just kept smacking her nose when she got to close. 

What a gorgeous face....

Fun stuff

The other day at work I had a baby bunny sitting out side my window.... how cute!

I got to watch Lighting for a few days... such a very sweat boy he is. 

Matthew got an Attitude stripe at Karate for say the Creed super loud!

I swear it rained the entire month of May!!!

Mom is great!!!! She gives us chocolate cake (and muffin's) for breakfast!

My nurse and good friend Amanda got married!  It was a lot of fun!

The boys helped me put up shade sails over the patio!  I love them.... now we can play in the back yard and not melt!

This is Nitzana...  She is 8 months old and I am puppy sitting her for a few weeks for a fellow raiser. 

It only took 5 months but I finally found a gas stove top that fit and got it installed!  Happy birthday Alex.... sorry its three months late!

Such a good puppy at work!

Happy boys with their new dinosaur toys. 

I think he is on a dinosaur safari... apparently though it is a no pants safari. 

My boys watching the french open!!!! 

the boys and I spent over 4 hours last Saturday putting this all together only in the end to get the kids loaded up and find out that Matthew couldn't reach the pedals!!!!!  AAAGGGHHH!!!    I was seriously bummed!

I woke up the other morning and this was in my face. .  It was too cute not to take a picture.  

Saturday morning playing in the sand in the shade thanks to our new shade sails. 

Sand is so much fun!

Nitazana at yoga with me. 

Kite flying fun

Every spring Fort Collins has a huge kite flying festival.  we all decided to go this weekend and it was a lot of fun.  It happened to be really windy that day too, bonus!!

Getting our kites up. 

Matthew flying his iron man kite.  He did a great job!

Matthew and Grandpa flying kites!

Daddy was home for the weekend and came with us!!! yeah!!!

Matthew flying his kite while Ethan and Grandma snuggle. 

Oh my aching back

It was time to remulch the yard.... Ugh... not a fun thing to do.  I ordered the mulch and had it delivered and looking at it..... that seems like an aweful lot of mulch for me to move and put down.....
Thankful some of my friends were willing to come help!

Wow!  that's a big pile of mulch!

Matthew had a blast climbing the "pile 'o mulch"

Making progress!!!
After all that work....... we diserve some Freddy's!!!!!
