It's a song we sing with our kids and it goes a little something like this...

"I love you (insert your name here),
Oh yes I do,
I love you (insert your name here),
this much is true,
when you're not with me, I'm blue
Oh, (insert your name here) I love you
Oh, (insert your name here) I love you!

{around the outside}

we made a concerted effort to do a bit of yard work this weekend.  raking, edging, weeding and scott's step 1.  (my dad swears by the stuff.)  it felt good to get our hands dirty for the first time this year.  all except maybe that giant blister mike got raking.

i wish you could smell this viburnum.  it is seriously out of this world. 

i could look at this white bleeding heart all day.  the detail on this thing...totally spectacular.  nice work God!

i wish these things bloomed all year.  they make me happen every time i see them out the kitchen window.  (now i should just clean that filthy window...i bet they'd be even prettier!)

and although this may look like a whole lotta nothing, our little costco blueberry bushes have fruit buds.  not bad considering we thought we killed them. 

it rained all day today and i swear the yard already looks greener...after one day.  is that even possible?  maybe that scott's is all it's cracked up to be!

{family additions}

we have some new additions to our family.  and the best part shedding, no sneezing, no walks around the block.  these hermit crabs may be the perfect pet! 

miles learned the hard way though that kissing your crab is not the wisest.  i ran up the stair to my screaming son to find "fire claw" hanging from his bottom lip.  i guess his name suits him...ha!

the only downside may be that the kids keep telling people, "guess what...we got crabs!"  nope...that's not embarrasing at all in the checkout line.
