Dogs, Flowers and Fires

Sierra is a princess and she knows it!  I spent part of the weekend with Aaron and Stephanie and enjoyed using my new camera.  There was lots of practicing taking photos of the dogs.  They were not as thrilled as I was but they tolerated it okay!
Riley is in desperate need of a decent haircut.  He's sporting the shaggy look right now....
I sat out on the front porch with the pooches while Aaron and Stephanie did some yard work.  The dogs had to stay on their leashes so they would not take off after squirrels or other dogs.  Sunday was a lovely day (except for the wind) and lots of people were outside enjoying the sunshine.
Stephanie has been growing some flowers from seeds.....
She also got some gerber daisies from Lowes that morning that she needed to transplant into her clay pots...

She picked out some really pretty colors!
and did a little dog teasing with some dirt clad fingers.....
Aaron's hard work on his yard is really paying off.  His lawn is beautiful, especially right after a mowing !  A few dandilions had to be plucked out of the yard.....
Finishing up the front yard work.....
Stephanie's marigolds to keep the ants away!
Sierra in the backyard after Aaron finished mowing.  She hates the lawnmower and hides in her bed until she hears it shut off!

Riley on the other hand could care less about the lawnmower.  He'll stay out in the yard and watch it.

That night we sat around Aaron's firepit, watched him add twigs and logs and caught up on life!
The weather was a little chilly and just right for huddling in blankets around a hot fire!
Riley kept his head under the blanket most of the time, he does not look too pleased that I uncovered him to take his picture!
