 Anicka and I made our own bubble solution, and had some fun blowing bubbles while Ryker napped. We got the big bubble wand from Dollar Tree.

I just love that last picture. :)

Bubble solution recipe:
1/2 Cup Dawn dishwashing soap
2 Cups water
1 Tbsp sugar or corn syrup

It's Springing! In our backyard!

 It's a good thing that we have some great helpers who like to water all of these plants.

 (Okay, Ryker mostly just likes to make mud and then stomp in it.)
 You don't know how unbelievably excited I am to have my own backyard, with all of these gorgeous things growing in it!

I don't remember what these flowers(above) are called, but I think we planted them from bulbs.
Can anyone help me out here?

 This is some sort of vine that's growing behind one of our trees. We didn't plant it there. I don't know what it's called, but it sure has some pretty purple flowers on it.

The grass that we planted from seed is even growing! Finally! Now we need a lawnmower...
