Yard Work, Anyone?

Matt and I managed to stay busy today.  We had our normal weekend chores:  a mountain of laundry and grocery shopping but I found myself outside again.  It's just so nice to have such wonderful weather and I was happy to spend most of the weekend out in it.  We are also enjoying having the windows open in the house and getting the fresh air. 

Matt played in his basketball play-off game which I'm sad to say, ended poorly today.  They have done great all season but Matt said they couldn't make a basket today.  Now, it's time to move on to softball. 

Wally was happy to be out in the sun and grass. He was funny rolling around the yard on his back. Too bad I missed any picture opportunities with his belly in the air!
The yard is looking a little better after my time outside today.  I'm ashamed to show pictures as we do not have good grass or even many flowers.  I think about how many hours my Grandpa spends working on his yard, roses, flowers, vegetable garden and think I would love to have his beautiful yard.  It's such hard work!

Spring has Sprung

We had the most fabulous weekend on the first days of Spring.  It just flew by!  Matt's sister was in town and we managed to get some time to visit with her Friday evening and all day Saturday.  Matt grilled on Friday evening and made margarhitas.  Not much better than that!  Saturday, we were busy with friends at the Irish Festival.  We were out in the sun all day.  It was 80 degrees and very crowded at the festival.

I didn't put on sunscreen so, as you can tell from the pictures, my arms and neck were very pink by Saturday evening. We managed to go out for dinner with the group before heading home and crashing.  :-)

Daylight Savings Time

We are very excited about the time change and also the warmer weather.  The Wheawill family is very happy and Wally has enjoyed his daily walks.  We had to take a break for a few days due to the rain.  Now the weather needs to cooperate with our longer days.

So not much is going on to update on.  I'm hoping my Grandma starts feeling better soon and gets out of the hospital very soon.

Matt and I had a nice weekend at home.  We had some nice dinners with friends; I did some shopping and had some great girl time with Ali; Matt had a good day hanging out at the Irish pubs; I managed to get 2 closets cleaned and organized; We enjoyed watching the movie Up this afternoon.  All in all, a very successful weekend.

So, the only pictures I have to share are of our ridiculously spoiled dog licking the ice cream carton.

Happy Humpday!

Here are some pictures to make you laugh.  Wally and I went to bed before Matt so he took our picture.  (I guess it's payback as I've definitely taken pictures of Wally and him sound asleep.  As you will see, we were spread out on the bed.  Wally had his belly up, laying straight on his back.  He sometimes hangs his head off the bed (not sure what that is about). 

He was seriously sleeping like this.  I think he opened his eyes as Matt was taking the picture.

We are almost to the weekend!

blah, blah, blah

We are back into the work week and I'm wanting the weekend back.  I really hope the weather forecast is wrong about any snow possibility, although it keeps looking better everytime I look with the possibility diminishing.

Matt and I bummed around here this weekend, but we managed to stay pretty busy.  We had some real exciting chores like laundry, bathing Wally, taxes, grocery shopping, etc. to keep us busy.  We got some nice rest though and also caught up on our TV.  Saturday night, we went to dinner and bowling with the Hamricks.  In case you are wondering about my bowling capability, I think I'm highly skilled.  I scored an 83 both games.  Not that it's a great score, but I am very consistent which requires skill, right?  Anyways, I managed to have a strike and some spares with many gutterball in between! 

Oh, and I made myself an eye appointment.  Thanks to my patient husband who I insisted drive me in case they dilated my eyes, which they didn't.  But we were there for 1.5 hours!  Anyways, the good news is my vision is the same as it was 5 years ago, so I can stick to my same glasses.

So, Matt got this wonderful Cornhole set for his birthday.  We tried it out on Sunday!  We are excited for warm weather.  It made me want to have friends over to cook out and play some cornhole. 

After Wally's inspection, we started playing which he wasn't at all sure about.  We was so skiddish, afraid of being hit.  (It's probably good thinking on his part as I'm defiinitely not known for coordination.)

Happy Birthday Mom!

Mom, I'm sorry your card didn't make it in snail mail in time for your birthday but I hope you have a great day at jury duty!  :-) 

Look forward to a big weekend in a few weeks and seeing Wicked together.  Love you!
