We were in the mood to do something special and couple-y today, but I didnâ€™t want to: 1) spend any money or 2) go anywhere. Hah. What can I say, itâ€™s one of those days. So we decided to have a picnic in the backyard. And it was so, so nice.
Remember a few weeks back, when I talked about my penguin phase and how everyone gave me penguin gifts as a result? Yup. This blanket is circa penguin craze phase.
Even though weâ€™ve lived in the house for about two and a half months, I am still not used to it. For so long, owning a home and having a backyard was â€˜the dream.â€™ It was the goal that we had focused on since were 20 or so. I still feel like it isnâ€™t really real. I actually had a nightmare last night that the bank knocked on our door and kicked us out!
Itâ€™s nice to do things like this â€“ it makes homeownership seem moreâ€¦ well, more real. Our dream of a backyard finally came true.
Veggie burger, salad, fries.
Chips and hummus:
Sooooâ€¦. This might be a little mean. But itâ€™s really funny.
We play a game with James because he is obsessed (ob-sessed) with squirrels. I call it, â€œLook! Look! A Squirrel!â€
The Husband shakes a treeâ€¦
The leaves rattleâ€¦
I scream, â€œLook! Look! A squirrel!â€â€¦
And James freaks out.
Heâ€™s a really smart pup. Heâ€™ll figure it out eventually.
