Moments that Matter Monday: Week 5

Moments That Matter MondaysMoment 1: Anniversary date with Lyle. Lyle and I celebrated our 4 year anniversary this week! (I cannot believe it has already been that long). To celebrate we went and saw the new Star Trek movie in theaters (very good, by the way) and ate at Sonora Grill. A couple of weeks ago I mentioned in another Moments that Matter post that I had a mouth-watering taco salad from this place. For our anniversary date we did not even consider any other restaurant than Sonora Grill because of that very taco salad, and I am glad we didn’t because it was just as tasty the second time :).

Moment 2: Receiving beautiful flowers from Lyle at work. You can read about my anniversary surprise here.

Moment 3: Having a clean backyard! On Tuesday, Lyle and I spent all evening cleaning up our yard. Now don’t judge us when I admit what I am about to admit…okay here it goes…we had not touched our backyard at all since the snow melted in March. Yes it was because we were lazy, and yes our yard did look like that trashy house on the block that all the neighbors despise because it brings their property value down (you know what I’m talking about :)). Anyway, we actually got up off of our lazy butts and got to work on the yard (with much whining and complaining [from me, not Lyle]). We cleaned up all of the dog poop that had accumulated all winter, the trash that had blown into our yard, the leaves from last autumn, and the items that Daisy had drug outside. We (meaning Lyle) mowed the lawn, and we assembled our patio furniture. To celebrate our clean yard we grilled kabobs and enjoyed the cool breeze on the patio when we were done. Here are some pictures of our hard work:

Yes that is our extremely tall grass (what little we have), and yes that is an enormous pile of sticks, leaves, and dog poop, and yes we did fill an entire trash can with sticks, leaves, and poop :)

Daisy finally got her outdoor water bowl back and we were able to round up all of toy to place back in her toy box.

Our very late (because it took forever to finish the yard) candlelit dinner. We had kabobs, mac n cheese, and corn.

Moment 4: Seeing one of our teens in his final band concert. It was a blessing to him perform so well. We are so proud of him.

What were your moments that mattered this past week? I would love to hear about them – so leave me comment.
