The Monday Snapshot – Springtime Edition

The weather here in Colorado has been all over the board lately (ex. 60s and sunny over the weekend, but 30s and snowing now), so it definitely appears like it will be a typical “spring” season here. Charlie and I had a great weekend hanging out with friends in the evenings and TCOBing (Taking Care of Business) during the days, which means we spent a lot of time working on the yard, the deck, the house, etc. Stella has a ball following us all over the place and “helping” all weekend, and she looked darn cute in her summer dress too!

The dog is either (1) following her around to get her to throw the ball for him, or (2) trying to avoid her but she searches him out anyway! It’s pretty cute actually, and for as much as we swear about that dog, we do love that they’re BFFs. 🙂

    Adorable. And I like how Chief is now in like every single picture ever 🙂

    1. Ha, that’s because he has figured out who the sucker is that loves to throw the ball for him OVER AND OVER AND OVER. I’m going to add in a 2nd pic of the two of them from the weekend just because of this comment. Check back in a sec. 🙂

    Adorable! Sounds like you had a great weekend. Love the pics of Stells and her pup! Bffs for sure!

  3. I love the clothesline with the diapers in the background. Do you ever hang them like a rainbow?! Fun.

    1. I’m usually just anal and hang them in alternating colors (green, orange, purple, yellow, blue). The orange and yellow can’t be together and the purple and blue can’t be together (look to similar). I am a weirdo. The 4 freestyles I bought last fall are girlier colors (white, light pink, dark pink, and dark purple) so they just go on the end. LOL

      1. This is…amazing. I’m amazed. 😉

  4. I love how she seeks Chief out. Rae has started doing that with Morty. She blows kisses to Mattie, but loves cuddling with Morty, no matter how much he tries to avoid her….she wants to be with him all the time. I so wish we had a fenced yard so they could chase each other….

    PS love the diapers….so cute!

  5. Love the diapers in the background. It’s a diaper rainbow! 🙂

  6. Your pictures make me miss living in Colorado! Diaper rainbow = LOVE!

  7. The first picture couldn’t be more perfect. I LOVE all of the diapers in the background…and the dog…and the mountains…and oh yeah, that adorable baby girl. (-:

    And the second picture – how precious! What a good puppy.

  8. I just love these two together!!! 🙂 And that first photo is just beautiful! I am so impressed with your diaper hanging neatness. I just throw mine on quickly and they don’t look organized at all. Sure makes for a nicer photo your way!!
