a good day

Today was a good day. It was nice to have Aaron home and be able to get some things done. The weather was really nice this morning, and Elsie took a 2 1/2 hour nap!

Aaron had started a little project a few weeks ago while I was gone and planned on finishing it today. The grass over by the gate on our fence was not doing so well, so he wanted to pull it out and put some stones down there instead. We had a ton of rock left over from when we made our fountain, so he planned on using that. I wasn't caring too much if he actually did this project since it's not like we really see that area anyway. Well, it's just that I would rather have him inside hanging out with me. But, he was set on doing it. He worked on it today while I sat back and put in my two cents. It actually turned out a lot better than I was expecting, and he was quite proud of himself for actually finishing a project without me having to bug him to do it. Good job, Aaron!

(Aaron loves the hose. He will spend a good 1/2 hour in the back yard hosing things off. No joke!)

Here's a picture of the fountain we put together last summer with the help of Aaron's parents. It's pretty cool. We drove about 1 1/2 hours to the middle of nowhere (twice...I might add), hauled these stones down from a mountain in 100 degree heat, and put this fountain together all in one weekend. Not fun...but we're proud of it. And we only had to pay $14 for the stone. Not bad!

I realized that all of the pictures we have of Elsie are either by herself or with her daddy, so I made Aaron take a picture of us together. I had actually done my hair...I couldn't pass up the chance. Not that it matters what I look like. You know she's the only one we care to look at.

Oh, and last but not least, we went and saw The Bourne Ultimatum this evening. It was so good! Seriously, I loved it and have now decided that I am in love with Jason Bourne. (Plus, it's not like Matt Damon isn't too bad to look at either.) Aaron also confirmed that he has a man crush on Jason Bourne. I wonder if it takes the place of Brad Pitt. I'll have to ask him. Anyway, you must see it!
