Fun in Bellevue

This weekend I was in heaven... I got to eat cupcakes at Cupcake Royale, chocolate foundue at the Melting Pot, lettuce wraps at the Cheesecake Factory, and hung out with Lyndenn and Emily. Lyndenn and I drove to Bellevue to meet up with Emily where we tried on lots of crazy dresses, shopped, spent some time at the Bare Essentuals Makeup store (which is great fun!), and had some yummy food!

My Dog Loves Me

There are two things I like about this picture. The first being that there is water in my ditch- which means that spring is on the way and that Maddy and I will soon be able to float down this little canal for a mid summer day cool down! The main canals are being primed and water will soon be here! That means green and I like green. The second thing about this this picture is that often times when I come home at night Maddy is sitting in the driveway like this with her little ears up awaiting my (or Brian's) but we will say my arrival because she loves me more!

Don't they look cute! This is Kevin- Brian's little brother! Who is recently engaged! (Way to go Kev) anyway, I thought this picture was so cute! And also Jonda of Jonda Spurbeck Photography found this great site to make pictures into old looking Polariods I've been wanting to do that, they are so fun! That's all for now folks!

This weekend when Jolene came over Maddy got to have a play date with Atila (Jolene's Lab)- actually play dates for the Mad-Dog include tormenting the other dog, chewing on their neck, lots of tackling, puncing, and teasing. She is actually somewhat of a bully, but Atila doesn't seem to mind too much.

Load Up

After Maddy's work bench photo shoot on Saturday she was begging for more. So we decided to go around the yard and jump on top of all the items we could find! She will sit patiently until you say the words 'Load Up' and then she just leaps up!

Ahhhh...this is the life!

High Places

Maddy loves being in high places...whether it be on Brians work bench in the shop, the trucks tailgate, Ellie's tail gate, or her dog house. Crazy animal!

The Moon

Did any one else see the moon last night? I was driving home at about 8:30 and it was HUGE in the sky and I thought WOW what a great picture that would be....well as you can see, not such a great picture. I didn't have my mother-lens with me so it looks like a tiny dot in the photo. You get the idea though...look how orange it was!

Every year about this time Brian comes home with a few bunches of daffodils from Lloyd the seed/flower guy from Burlington. I love getting them becuase they totally brighten my house this time of year when I need a little spring pick me up!
