Our New Fence

We got a new fence put in! The fence company made a mistake and ripped out the wrong side ... so we got 1/2 of our fence - the left side as you look at our house for nearly free! We had to pay for the picket on the top but that was it.
It really makes a world of difference in our backyard!
Now the fun comes when I get to go buy new flowers and shrubs!
I can't wait!
The side yard with our double gates to keep the dogs away from the meter readers!

This is looking west. This was the side that was ripped out by mistake. You can't see it but they also ripped out forty feet of wroght iron going up the slope. They had to replace that as well!

Another view - looking west. We are hoping to train our lab this summer to not get in the pool so we can actually take down the child proof gate that goes around the pool.

On the east side of our yard.
The front of our house. What a dreary day! Our neighbors on the right side (east side) were the ones we were spliting the fence with. The ones on the left are selling their house.... the new owners will be so lucky to have a brand new fence! And, that side cost those neighbors nothing!

We went to Disneyland for two days! Got a free hotel room at the Ramada and spend 1 1/2 days at Disney and 1/2 day at California Adventure. Boys had a good time! We ran into several different friends that we knew; which was nice!

Easter Discussion

The Boys were having a discussion about Easter...

Josh: "Did you know that Christmas was the day Christ was born?"
Daniel: No
Josh: "Did you know that Easter is the day Christ rose from the dead?"
Daniel: No.
Josh: "Well it is..."
Daniel: "Then how does the bunny come into the story?"

He is such a funny boy!

Football Champions

Josh's Flag football team won the championship!

They went 10 - 0 the whole season!
It was fun for Josh to be on a winning team!
And, football is sure a fun sport to watch your kid play!

Mac Book

Allen got me a birthday present Macbook!

My birthday isn't until June but I was worried that I wasn't going to know how to teach the kids in the computer lab how to use a Mac! My lab is getting updated this summer with all brand new IMacs. It will be really nice!

So far, I find the Mac a bit frustrating.... however it's fun to be able to update this blog while sitting watching TV!
