we're still here!

Hey there!  Remember us?
 We're still here!  Had to take time off from the computer to stop and appreciate the springness (OK, I just made up a word).

We've been busy watching stuff turn green, and then all sorts of bright colors burst out this week!
Hammock season is upon us, and we couldn't be more excited.  I've got a long list of books to read, a flat of flowers to plant, and vegetables to grow.  The dogs have holes to dig, balls to catch, and moles to chase in the yard (Chewy likes to play with the moles).

Oh yea, our first agility trial of the year is next week.  I was getting a bit worried, because Chewy is going to have to do 12 weave poles this year, and he just isn't that consistent yet.  He likes to do 10, not 12!

Then Jeff said, "Who cares, as long as he has fun."

So true!  No worries, we'll just do our best and smile through whatever happens.

The robins are back, and mama is sitting in the nest, same place as last year.  Can't wait to see the babies.
We also have a hawk's nest way up high in a tree over our driveway.  The nest is huge!  I bet the babies will be too.  Not sure how their first flight is going to go.....hope they make it out ok.

If you don't hear from us again for awhile, it's because I fell asleep in the hammock, or I'm cleaning the soil out of my fingernails, or we're looking for our orbee under the trees.

Summer holidays are coming too....isn't it wonderful to see the world all green again. Your tulips look wonderful and so do the boys - and we agree....go have fun at agility :)

You are full of sunshine! Oreo and Chewy are breathing in deep and filling their souls with the joy of the tulips. Good luck at Agility. Your boys have Spring Fever. Chewy might do his weaves backwards. Who knows, but it will be fun and a good day whatever happen. Enjoy. Aloha.

Your yard is looking beautiful!!

Well at least you can plant the flowers in the places where the dogs dig holes -- it's half the shoveling work already done fur you -- and leaves more time fur you to spend in Oreo's hammock!

We've been excited by all the Spring stuff too. So much to see and to do.

Finally green here too, not many flowers yet though but I'm sure they'll be out soon. Enjoy the springness!

Good to see you!!! After the winter we all had no one thought that flowers would EVER come! I was at BlogPaws since Wed so sorry I wasn't around!

Love the pictures of Chewy sniffing at the flowers and Oreo is enjoying the fresh air.

Your yard is so beautiful!

Enjoy the spring!
