productive saturday

I love it when we get to check off tasks from our to-do list. Today we were productive! Kenton & his dad replaced the burned out headlight in our car & changed the oil - two tasks that seem to take forever for us to get to, but really don't take very long. Finn & I played inside with Grandma Outi while they worked. It's a little tricky trying to keep Finn happy without his Pappa close by. He really loves Pappa! We managed but Finn was super excited when the guys were finished. :)

Then, while Kenton & Finn napped, I got to do yard work! (I actually really enjoy this; weird, I know...) Most of my spring bulbs are poking up & a couple of my crocuses are already blooming. I love this time of year. I know it took a lot of work to plant my bulbs...but that was months (or years) ago. By now, I've forgotten the effort I put into planting the bulbs & they just feel free. I never knew how much I'd enjoy gardening or even flowers until we owned our home. It's fun for me to try & make our yard/house look nice on the outside. I can't wait for the rest of my bulbs to bloom...

Lovely flowers, Katrina! It's still very grey and brown here... we're told Spring doesn't start until May, and then Summer starts in June... perfect. :( Is Pappa Kevin? That's really cute.
