Green Thumb?

I don't know even so much as the names of these flowers, but I do know they were a successful new venture. Last fall, with the help of cousin Penny, we planted several bulbs sporadically throughout the yard and are starting to see the evidence! It's exciting... we've never planting anything before so the fact that anything came up is fantastic. Now maybe we can get some green life in the house as well.

This lovely flower is on the east side of our house along the fence in the backyard. It has a friend perking through the soil beside it but they're both waiting for some rain to really stand tall.

This group is in the northwest corner of the backyard. For the life of me I couldn't get my camera to focus my favorite tulip... but at least you can see the color!
We can take no credit for this pot. Our lovely new roommate Mel planted this. As it turns out, she actually does have a green thumb so she made nice of this huge cement pot that sits right in the front of our house. And to think, we almost threw it away.

Hola Mexico!

There are no words to describe... just captions to reveal:

We finally arrived... and started with some much-needed margaritas!
We walked the coast and and soaked in the scenery. This is before our fancy meal on the second day... like my burn?
Jordan took this. It's fabulous, timeless and going up in my house.
Ahhh... the wedding night, with some champagne!
Here's one of the pools w/bball hoops and a swim-up bar... niiiiiice.
Here's the other pool at the resort... the calm pool.
The sun, the beach and the water.
Here's a neat shell/rock/white creature we found on the beach.
Another view from our walk down the shoreline. See the sail boat?
Here we are at the Mayan ruins and here is our greeter.
This is one of the many breath-taking views at the ruins.
Yet another amazing view.
More ruins... more cool views.
This is the largest of all the ruins. Looks like a long way up.
The girls... all dressed up and a wedding to go.
Michelle... posing for one of her many amazing photos!
Another prewedding photo, they did a great job!
Michelle and her parents descend down the aisle, mid-tears.
Congratulations to the Washingtons!
