Would it be a post from me if I did not mention that Pam's flower beds are looking great. Right now they are filled with tulips. She'll be planting the other flowers soon. I love the onset of spring and being outside again and this weekend we have had fresh strawberries from our garden. Very sweet!

I guess I will have to go outside and start to clear off the driveway. It is still snowing very hard but the biggest part of this storm is not suppose to hit until later this afternoon and evening. If that is the case the snow in our driveway is going to get deeper than my snow thrower is capable of digging through.

A very tasty banana cream pie, Emi's favorite. We also took a couple of minutes to take a family picture. At first it looked like a moment from a sitcom as Amy was trying to use the timer on the camera to take the picture with her in it also but she mastered the camera and we all got in the picture. This one was looking a little too much in to the sun. Enjoy Eric's funny face as he squinted at just the wrong time. HAPPY BIRTHDAY EMI!

Well, I guess I'll go back to seeing if BYU can hang on and beat Washington. Take care everyone!

This first image is similar to what you'll see on Amy's blog. Both her and her mom have gotten in to these Topsy-Turvey's. Pam has bell peppers, cucumbers, celebrity tomato's, Amy melons, eggplant, and a strawberry plant. They are growing very well.
Next is her regular vegetable garden. You can see that her tomato's are doing well. She also has carrots, peas, beans, cucumbers, bell peppers, turnips, lettuce, fennel, and Chinese cabbage. She is trying to make me eat more healthy foods.
This is our raspberry patch. This is Pam's gift to me. I love raspberries, as does she, but with me around we are lucky if any of them make it in to the house. Moby loves raspberries also so when they disappear I just blame it on him. The berries are showing up now and we will soon be picking them. The frames over the raspberries are for a netting Pam is making to protect them from birds who have in the past eaten more of them than we have.
This is the front of our house and the flower beds she has put in there. You can see all of the beautiful roses right in front of the house. She has also planted a large number of petunia's in the front bed which will be beautiful as they mature.
Then this year we pulled out our evergreen trees in the front and replaced them with a variegated willow and a flowering pear tree. The willow tree will only get to be about 10 feet tall and maybe 12 feet wide and changes color through the season. You can also see our flowering plum tree by the house.
This is the side of our house with gladiola's and pansies. There is also a strawberry patch in the back which has already given us a very tasty treat this summer.
So that's a quick look at Pam's gardens. She sure makes it a pleasure to come home and I love looking at our yard. I am also lucky I married such a talented girl. The only thing I know how to do is push the lawn mower around. Thanks!

Today Amy is teaching me how to create a blog. This picture, as well as the header for our blog, is from our recent trip to Hawaii featuring Pam and I and our dolphin friends. Some have tried to tell me that these dolphins are not real but I know better. We went to Hawaii in February and spent a week on Maui.
Eric gave me a book from my favorite author, Dean Koontz. This one is entitled "Odd Hours" and is the fourth in a series of books about the character Odd Thomas. A young man who can see dead people. He can't talk to them, just see them.
Pam gave me an HD radio for "my room", the downstairs family room. Along with the radio it also plays MP3's, CD's and DVD's.Then we took some pictures of all of us, including our little dog Moby. He gives an excellent performance (yawn) in the picture with Pam and I.
Dana and Emmy (Amy's husband) had to work today so they could not be here with us.
That's it for today. Pam and I will try to update this from time to time so check back. Worse case, Amy will stop by and make me update it cause that is what she does.
Bye for now. Dennis and Pam
