Can't beat FREE....

This last little while has been fun, as always. Last weekend we got topsoil for our flower beds and it really turned out great. We hauled it with the good ole 'Monkey Wagon' and I couldn't have been prouder. Really stupid, I know. Anyway we also got trees! We love doing yard improvement. The trees we got are October Glory Maples. Supposedly they turn super red in the fall. They were for the park strip. So, the yard is coming together. Just need plants! And today we went down to a park in Orem and gathered up about 110 tulip bulbs they were giving away! Can't wait to get them in the ground. They give them away every year, but this is the first time we've really known about it. Should make for a nice display next spring.

We had a great weekend with family too. We were able to see a lot of people we haven't seen in a while. We were at Becky's for Jesse's birthday and it almost felt like the 4th of July party, minus the steak and volleyball. Justin and Alisha are moving to Iowa to work on Chriss Dodds presidential campaign for the next 8 months or so, and it was great to see them and the rest of the gang too.

N has pnemonia again! It's not too serious, just some anti-bacterail and steriods should fix him up, but the doctor said kids with asthma get pnemonia more so than others. T had a little cough and runny nose last week and now it transferred to N. Poor guy. He's getting much better now though. Anyway, that's our life in a nutshell over the last couple weeks. We'll get pics up soon!

Way to go on your yard and way to score tulips bulbs. Those are my favorite flowers.
We got to see KJ last night. I just love her!
Sorry your boys are sick!

Clint, I didn't even know you had a freaking blog. I love you guys! I can't stop laughing at your posts. It is like I am sitting and talking with you and you just crack me up. We seriously need to get to your house again. There is nothing better than accomplishing yard work. Of course we still don't have tree's or plants yet, hey we have only been here for 3.5 years, what's the hurry:) hopefully we will see you soon.
