The joy of owning a home!

Last Thursday Jason and I decided to mow our front lawn for the first time in little over a month. The construction guys were generous enough to mow our lawn in the past weeks since we were new and didn't own a lawn mower. Jason bought a push mower(who buys one of those now-a-days?) considering the facts that they are good for the grass and the environment and our lawn is small enough that we won't need an electric one. Anyways, Thursday we took the mower out for a test run on our front yard. Oh boy, was it not fun!!!!! It was over 100 degrees outside, we were feeling the heat as well as we were feeling that it wasn't as easy as we thought it would be!!!

While mowing the lawn we saw hundreds of lady bugs flying everywhere. They were sooo cute! I ran inside to bring my camera. By the time I was back, they all went underneath the grass. I was able to hunt down one and ran after it to take a few shots.

We also have some flowers now :) this was the first one in bloom -

The first yard work experience wasn't bad. Actually it was fun(minus the heat) and I liked the lady bugs. We have a loooooooooong way to go. Hopefully. Jason will continue to have fun with his regular lawn mowning job. It will be his sole responsibility to mow the lawn from next Thursday(I hope you are reading this J ;))))
