It's official! We have our own home! On the 22nd we signed our life away and we are just waiting to receive the keys which we will be getting this week. Now, a lot of work needs to be done (notice the weeds) but in no time we will have it looking livable. We have lots of trees in the back yard which make our yard extremely nice in the evenings; bring on the bbqs!
We have discovered raspberry bushes growing along the side fence! Raspberries hold a special place in my heart. I was very fortunate to know my Great Grandma Berger. She lived up in Idaho and every year we went to visit her and she had TONS of raspberry bushes in her yard. We would pick them and eat them all day long. She taught all of us how to know if they were ripe and which ones were the best to eat. We would have them almost every morning at breakfast along with eggs, bacon, toast, sausage, pancakes, you name it, it was there. I'm excited to help them grow nice and big and make my grandma proud :)
A couple of days ago we went over to look at the spriklers and see if we could turn on some water so all of our grass wont die before we move in and we found a little spicket in the back and we decided to see if it would turn on...and it did! Then we decided to turn it off...that didn't work as well. It wouldn't turn off. Luckily they had another way to turn it off for a little bit until we got a new spicket. So yesterday Trent and my dad went to replace it and before we knew it we had a Old Faithful in the back yard. I'm mad cuz I didn't get off work until a little later so by the time I got there they had fixed it so I couln't capture the beautiful site but this is what Trent looked like when I got there. :) He was soaked!
House adventure #1...and we don't even have the keys yet :)
