I heart Springtime!

So the weather has been beautiful for a couple of weeks now and Matt and i have been trying to make the best of it :0) I bought Matt some nice binoculars for Valentines Day and we've gone bird-watching a couple of times..(i know..were DORKS :O) We saw alot of hawks and Bald Eagles! Cool huh? Heres Matt in action :0)

Also we (mostly me) decided that we needed to make our front yard look nicer SO we bought some electric hedge-trimmers and i had fun trimming our bushes out front..they look so much nicer now! AND we (mostly Matt) pulled up an ugly bush that we had and i replaced it with flowers and such! Heres a before pic..after we pulled out the ugly bush..

And heres me creating my masterpiece ;0)

TA-DAAAH! Heres the finished product...

That was the first time ive ever planted my own garden..not too shabby eh? :0) Weve been taking Daisy to the park alot becuase its so nice outside..

Bidwell park is so pretty and only a few minutes away from our casa..

Daisy has fun smelling the other doggies there and being a spaz :0) Heres some pics of the Daisy dog in action!

Heres me and Daisy bein' lazy :0)

Before we left the park we walked down by the river and daisy had fun in the water.

Seing the river made me realize that we havent gone fishing in a looong time! Hopefully we will be going soon ;0)


  1. Tenille: I like your garden...very pretty. I can't wait to have a garden. At our new place I can actually plant fruits and veggies but I don't think we'll be there long enough to make it worth it. Looks like you have been having fun though. Miss you!;)

  2. Love the garden, it looks really nice. Good work. But you guys are big dorks with the bird watching.

  3. congrats on the garden, it looks great. it's so cold still here it utah, it's great to see anything with color. i love your blog, i'm gonna add you to my little list. say hello to your fam.

  4. Aren't hedge trimmers fun! [evil grin] I love to go to town with those things! Looks great - you have so much creativity! And, au contraire, mon frere - bird watching is cool! It's for NERDS ([G]narly Educated Radical Dudes)!!! My mom was the queen of bird watching and I learned a lot from her - it's fun to know the names of some of the birds you are looking at! I just saw a really pretty flicker the other day (a type of woodpecker) and a killdeer! Love you loads! - Mom G.

  5. I love the flowers. They look so pretty. I don't have the best eye for that stuff, nor the best of luck...I hope yours is better than mine :0)

  6. so excited to read your blog (i know, i really need to add to mine:) the flowers are beautiful, you're dad would be proud! can't wait to either come & see your new casa or for you to come visit:)
    love, momb

  7. spring is nice in bakersfield, you guys should come check it out

  8. Just wanted to say hi! I'm glad to hear you guys are doing so good. I don't know if you've heard, but we're (more me i guess) pregnant! I only have two and a half months left! I finally started a blog, but it is nothing compared to yours. Yours is ADORABLE! I'm lucky I even got pictures up. =) Hope all is well! Take care.
