thanks to Chris’ parents, we have some new additions to our backyard this summer. they sold their house in CO and have moved to the beautiful northwest. when we went out there this spring to help them pack, they sent us home with lots and lots of goodies (which gave me an excuse to buy more flowers this year). ;)
we also did a little rearranging and created a new little flowerbed (which used to be patchy grass and lots of weeds) next to the door going into the garage.
we still have some work to do but here’s a little peek of what our yard looks like now.
FYI: so i’ve been calling my sister and her family by their last name, which sounds weird b/c it sounds like we’re talking about her in-laws family instead.
but then i came up with a solution.
starting today, i’m calling them PB&J; Penny, Bubba* & Jason. ;) much more appropriate, don’t ya think?
on saturday we had a little BBQ with PB&J in our backyard, and Penny was introduced to the swing. i think she might have liked it.
she was also introduced to our dog, Olivia and i think she’s in love. my sister was playing fetch with Olivia and Penny thought it was the best thing ever. after awhile Olivia tried to give the ball to Penny…that didn’t quite work out. maybe in a year or so Olivia. ;)
*for those of you that don’t know, my sister’s nickname is Bubba. she got that nickname when she was 2 years old.
we were building our house and a piece of sheetrock fell on her and she caught it and just stood there holding said (heavy) piece of sheetrock until someone came and removed it (in awe). it’s also said that i just stood there pointing at her and said “look mom!” …i’m a great big sister. ;)
hey look i’m blogging.
no, that’s not the new thing. silly. i recently got a new job working as a photographer for Bella Baby. what’s that you ask? well, i go to hospitals and take photos of newborns. yeah. i know. it’s kinda the best job ever. i’m really enjoying it. so i decided i’d share some of my photos with you guys.
we’re required to do certain poses with each shoot, so they look a lot different from my usual stuff, since i don’t pose my clients at all, but for the most part they’re pretty natural looking.
ok, enough blabbing, here ya go. :)
