Let There Be Grass- - - and Facepaint

Yeah Yeah, so goes the ongoing landscaping battle. By now we all know my life has been consumed with putting in a yard ALL summer which results in some pretty lackluster blogs. But finally I think we have reached a turning point! After days of toiling and meticulously (or obsessively, you decide) massaging a very detailed sprinkler schedule and a lot of time on the driveway G.I. Joe style searching for ANY sign of life; I am finally seeing tangible progress. Yesterday I got home to find my topsoil growing little sparatic strands of green baby hair! Oh I think it was one of the happiest moments of my adult life. Sad, I know. Anyway we seeded the yard 6 days ago and still have a ways to go. I am SO excited for Aaron to come home Friday so I can show him, and he will pretend to be as enthusiastic about it as I am! I will keep updating the grass scene so stay tuned! (I know you are all sitting on the edge of your seat for this... pffft.)

The Front Yard POST Seed

Day 4, just some seeds :(

Day 5 - Oh the beautiful baby grass, it's thin, but it's there!

The dogs are a bit confused considering we just trained them to stay ON our lot, and now they are forced to stay OFF our lot completely. So to let them run off some energy Sunday we ended up at the park. Aaron and I took some paints which we quickly were bored of so Aaron began using Finn as his canvas. The best part is that Finn LOVED it. Nothing a quick dip in the stream couldn't fix. Of course Alta wanted nothing to do with it.

You guys are so funny! The dogs look great! I love your home, it looks so nice, where is it? it's funny the things we get excited about these days, who thought we would ever care about the grass growing, it looks good! I also love the pic of you guys going mnt. biking, mike and I went mnt. biking the other day (or should i say hill biking) he got a popped tire half way in the ride and we had to hike (well walk up and down the hills) out. we will have to go when we get back! Tell Aaron hi!
