Tuesday, April 28

Hello All!

Can you believe that there are only 2 more days of April left?? Where did the month go? The weather here has been really nice this month - which we have enjoyed with more walking. I am not enjoying the number of ticks in our area - this area is evidently extremely high with the buggers...How do you effectively check a fur covered dog for these things?? I checked him yesterday after our walk and didn't find any (and I am so paranoid I try to keep him away from all the high grass and bushes on our walks, but to no avail), but he had one today :-( We are really going to have to be diligent to check everyone each time we come in from our walk (something we were not used to in our old neighborhood of few trees and no bushes - what happened to my subburbia??(is that a word)). The birds and water are also sounds that we are getting used to - it almost seems like we are in the country when we are so much closer to the stores here - kind of crazy. We have a deer in our backyard that Brenna calls her Reindeer (can you tell she has been influenced by Dustin's Santa Claus addiction).

It was a rainy day here today - Brenna and I stayed inside and did yoga and just played inside.

Well, that is about it for today!
Take Care!

suburbia is a word :)

Funny... my wife just saw a tick last night by the toilet which got her fairly paranoid and checked the kids' hair (no more sightings)... we have a fair amount of trees here though.
