Beep! She's backin' up

Trudy gets around every way but forward now. I walked out of our bedroom for a minute and when I came back she had backed herself into being stuck in our shoes.

A Day of Rest?

It was a busy day for Trudy. After the morning service at church she tried a pickle and a cream puff. You can guess which was her favorite.

After the afternoon service we headed over to Home Depot to get supplies for our never-ending home projects. Sweet T and I got our country girl on and worked in the garden while Dave did some things around the house.
Hope everyone had a great Sunday whether it was restful or productive.

Happy Birthday, Jake!

Do boys get "sweet" 16's? Not technically, but Jake had a pretty sweet birthday party anyway. He's a licensed driver now and I'm sure that was the best gift of all.

And finally back to Daddy after she'd had enough socializing.

The "kids" after the scavenger hunt. The boys won unfortunately. I'm sure the girls threw the hunt since it was Jake's birthday and all. ;)

Nina and Byron

Hunter the only laid-back Lab I've ever known.

And what would a Groovy Gervens' post be without MORE of Trudy. 

Happy birthday, Jake! Thanks for having us over. We had a great time.

Baby Yogurt - Win!

Trudy has taken quite a liking to the yogurt mom got for her. She likes it better than any baby foods we tried. Can't say that I blame her. I like yogurt better than squash too!

 What a face! She ate the whole container though so I know she enjoyed it.

Gigi picked us up for church so that Dave, Trudy, and I could all ride home together that night. I haven't been able to attend Wednesday night services in months because of her 8:00 bedtime (we live an hour away from church), but thanks to Daylight Savings time her bedtime wasn't until 9:00 this week. Going back to Standard time this fall is going to be a bear. Up an hour early!
 Fun with Gigi

Dress Up Sunday

A denim skirt is my definition of "dressing up." It's about as dressy as I get anymore unless there's a wedding or funeral. Dave and I are both content to just live in jeans. Since Trudy and I kind of matched today I wanted some pictures of us together. Naturally, she was in a bad mood. Oh well.

Check out the baby ring! This was Bella's when she was a baby and since we aren't responsible enough to keep from loosing it, I wanted to at least take a picture of the ring on Trudy's finger.

Saturday Outdoors

Dave built a mini-greenhouse/cold frame with our old storm windows. I love repurposing!

Our first planting of sugar snaps peas are coming up, but the second batch that I planted two weeks later got washed out. Here in the South we have a long growing season, but February and March are generally so wet that it seems difficult to direct sow anything. Last year we lost a lot of seeds. Right now there is standing water in the whole yard including the garden so once again, there goes my early start. Next year I will probably start indoors and transplant almost everything even though it's more trouble.

Trudy enjoyed being outside with one of us for most of the day.

Happy Spring!

Girl's Day Out

Trudy and I enjoyed a girl's day out with Gigi.. Mom bought her some peach baby yogurt and it was a big hit. She's wearing the evidence for all to see.
This was a day of firsts for her! We went shopping and she sat in the cart for the first time instead of riding in her carrier.
Later that evening, we met the boys for dinner and Trudy used a high chair for the first time.
Another round, bartender. ;)
