Wonderful Weekend



So, the minute I tell everyone we don't have too much of an exciting life- things start to pick up. We have had quite the weekend and as Sunday comes to a close, I am exhausted. 















We are continuing to train Sariah; she's getting better at her basics as the days go by. This week we have started teaching her to use her nose to find treats. For some reason, no store in Colorado sells/has in stock quail or pheasant scent; so for Sariah's benefit, we're using chunks of hot dogs.  We let her smell the meat, break it into pieces, tell her to sit/stay and she watches us throw it into the bushes- and in her little nose goes!  



I went out for a drive on Friday to one of my favorite places;  and there were some of the prettiest flowers on the side of the road. And as you all know, purple is my favorite - I couldn't help myself.  I also managed to catch a bumble bee in mid-flight!  I was estatic. 
















Saturday morning, Buck and I made our first mark on the land for years to come. We bought a Crimson Red Maple tree and planted it in the front yard. It looks sad now, but hopefully we will get to see it grow tall! There was a tree in the same spot when we moved into the house, but the landlord had it removed because of some parasite it contracted. Hopefully by the end of the summer, it will be rooted and our grass seed will sprout around it. We shall see- but leave it to us to get excited over a little maple! 


We had our hands full Saturday night! Good friends of ours, Johanna and John called and asked if we were free to babysit their toddler. Buck was finishing his clinical report, and I had nothing of dire importance to do- so we accepted! Boy, 2 &1/2 year old Anna definitely wore me out. We had dinner, bath, and got to know Sariah. Anna had a fear of dogs, and anytime Sariah came close she would let out a scream that echoed through our house. She ran to Buck at one point, and he uttered "um.. I don't pick up kids..."  but actually picked her up- so I couldn't resist the chance to snap a picture!! 


By morning, the two babies were best friends- running up and down the hall while I got ready for church. Nice for a visit, but for now I'm glad I'm not a mom. 














Last Sunday, Mother's Day was our anniversary and I didn't post anything related to the holiday, so... Happy (belated) Mother's Day to all you moms out there- it is very hard work, and you deserve a holiday every day of the year!!
