It finally feels like spring here! Aidan had soccer and a birthday party. Samantha had a playdate with her new buddy Lucia. Afterwards, we hung out in the back yard with Smooch. Check out my pics (and my SUPER green grass!) I am dying to start working on landscaping the back yard but I hurt my back lifting big puppy at the lake. I really have to learn to respect my old lady back and be more careful lifting things (animals, humans or objects). You can see in the second pic that I have moved some of my raised beds to the back yard. The plan for tomorrow is to finish raking out the leaves and position the beds along with various planters on that side of the fence. The area gets a lot of sun, so I am hoping for the best!
