Name that....plant

We have gotten so much rain here that our backyard looks like a jungle; we have all different types of flowers and plants that are blooming. We also have a major infestation of Japanese Beatles, but hopefully after the second round of spraying they will be dead soon. So, when you are in the back yard you have to watch out for bugs flying all around you. There are a lot of plants that are growing in the yard that we have no clue what they are, although there are a few that we know. I have taken pictures of pretty much all of the plants that are blooming and if you know what they are leave us a comment and tell us what it is.

I didn't post pictures of the Calla Lilies, roses, pansies and trumpet vine because I figured most people knew what those looked like.

We're not worthy

One of my favorite websites to visit is Cuteoverload; if you have never been there it is filled with cute pictures of animals that people submit to have posted. I have submitted a few pictures of Baxter before but I guess that his pictures weren't cute enough to post. Since my sister has been pestering me to take pictures of Baxter and Morgan I thought that I would post them on here to see if everyone thinks that they are cute enough to be posted on Cuteoverload. If you are an animal lover or if you just want to look at cute animals then check out this website.

It is extremely hard to take pictures of Morgan but here are his cute poses:

Fourth of July fun

I hope that everyone had a wonderful 4th of July. We had a blast and I hope that all of our families had fun as well. The fireworks were awesome, it was just to bad that The Naturals didn't win. Here are some pictures from our 4th of July.

Cherish the one's you love

It’s been a few weeks since we have posted anything on here. The last couple of weeks have been very crazy for us. We celebrated our 6 year wedding anniversary. We didn’t do a whole lot but we did wander around town and went to dinner at Texas Land and Cattle to celebrate. I would not recommend eating at the one in Rogers because it was nasty and very expensive. Chris says that the Texas land and Cattle in Dallas is great but the one that we have here is not. The food was bad and the service was worse. Our waiter kept calling me princess over and over again. Princess do you want water, princess is your food okay, or he would call me young lady. Other than that we had a wonderful anniversary and we enjoyed the time off together.

A few days after our anniversary I got a phone call at work from my mother saying that my father had a heart attack. Thankfully it wasn’t a major heart attack but his heart did stop and he had to have an Angioplasty. He had one blocked artery that they cleared and a partial artery that was blocked that they prescribed four different medicines to clear up. This came as a huge surprise call to us and a big wake up call to me not to take for granted the people that you love and cherish and think that you will have plenty of time to see or talk with them later. Life is short and you should spend time with the people who mean the most to you before you lose them.

I’ll end this on a positive note, this Friday is 4th of July and Chris’s family is coming up to spend some time with us. My family and Chris’s family are going to watch the Naturals play against San Antonio and then watch the fireworks show after that. We are really looking forward to that and we’ll post pictures of the fireworks later. We hope everyone has a Happy 4th of July and enjoy your three day weekend!!
