Just when I though... was going to start being nice out we get more cold weather.

Don't get me wrong I love the cold weather BUT I had begun to enjoy the warmer weather and the things it brings along like...
Starting my flower Garden that the dogs had made a disaster this winter

Food on the grill

Austin working in his bike
Having the bike out and enjoying afternoon rides
New life

Hopefully this week will be the last of the cold weather since we have been teased with the nicer weather lately, if not at least let it snow!!

This is Dook.
She is the oldest of my younger sisters. I don't know why but I have always called her Dook. I can't even remember when I started calling her that.
She is currently attending Missouri Western where she is partaking in the nursing program and plays varsity soccer for them. I didn't realize until the other day how much she has grown up. She has changed a ton since we were little playing in the backyard, digging to China (yes we did that). She is already turning 20 years old this summer. Funny how times flies, I still picture her as this high school girl learning to drive and coming home in the evenings, now she is away at college and not even coming home for the summers. I am glad she has done so well for herself and happy she has grown up to be such a beautiful, still spoiled, little sister of mine.

Almost Spring

As the warmer weather comes in so does the outdoor activities. This weekend we took advantage of the nice weather. We went on a bike ride in the park, cleaned the backyard, and grilled out for the first time since last summer.

Just For Fun

I went with a friend to the park this morning to take some pictures of her kiddos. Here are some of the photos

Just 2 Big Kids

This morning when I took the vacuum out I found these 2 toys stuck in the back of the closet.

Two years ago Austin and I bought Nerf guns to mess around with during the summer. They are the funniest things to play with ever! We use to run around his old basement and shoot each other, mind you these balls are NOT squishy, they hurt! Austin was really good at aiming at my forehead.
*side note*
About a month ago Austin took one of these Nerf guns out and was chasing the dogs around the house. They make a loud noise when you turn them on because they are battery powered and the dogs were scared. To add to their fright Austin began shooting at them. It was only seconds before both dogs had jumped on the bed and buried their faces in the pillows, the only thing hanging out was their bottoms and they were shaking like we were beating them. This is not an animal cruelty story we didn't hurt them in any way and if you had seen it you would have laughed too
