It has been an absolutely gorgeous weekend! It has been a lot of fun too. On Friday night we went to our favorite Mexican restaurant. Evie wanted me to take a few pictures, so here they are :). This was before we stuffed our face silly with yummy Mexican food. We eat there probably once every few weeks, and we love it. They have really great vegetarian fajitas. The pico de gallo about burns your nose hairs off though. It is really spicy!
After the Mexican restaurant, we took Evie bowling for the first time. She absolutely loved it! They put these bumper things up so she couldn't get a gutter ball. She actually did really well. It was cute to watch her. She would jump up and down every time the ball went down the lane :).
Yesterday we got a lot done outside. We were outside all day. It felt wonderful just being outside again in the warm sunshine. Jeff got my garden area ready. I had a huge, and I mean HUGE area of ornamental grass. He took it out and transplanted to different areas of the yard. Then he took my arbor down so he could fix it. It was leaning really bad, so he is going to make it stronger, and is going to put a seat underneath it so we can sit under it if we want to. My clematis climbs it, so it is beautiful in the summer. There was a huge peony planted underneath it, and we transplanted that to the front area. Now I have a really large area for my garden and herbs. I am so excited! Jeff transplanted 2 daylilies and 2 tiger lilies from the back garden area to the front flower beds, so we should have some beautiful color in the front yard too, not just the back yard. The biggest thing Jeff did was rip out a small tree by our front door. It was a evergreen that was dying because a neighbor dog keeps peeing on it. It was such a huge bush/tree that it was hiding the front door. Now it is very open. I was excited to find out that Jeff is going to dig me a fish pond in that area where he ripped the tree out! We had a fish pond at our old house with a fountain, and I really miss it. We took the fountain with us, and the pond pump, so all we have to buy is the liner. It won't be huge, but it will really dress up the front area by the front porch. I can't wait! He is going to start it after we get back from Florida. So we have had a very productive weekend. Today is gorgeous, so I'm going to get off the computer and go take a walk with the fam.
