The weather finally broke today. For Valentine's Day, we spent a good chunk of it working in the yard together. That big old pine tree that fell earlier in the week was piled in the fire pit and set on fire. Throughout the day, we added bits and pieces from around the yard.
Since we've had so much snow and rain and the tree was fresh, it took a while to get it going, not to mention a pile of Fire Starters. But once it did, it burned fast. The larger logs are still in the fire pit and will probably burn all night. I smell like smoke!
Riley Dog found a couple of toys he buried in the fall. He spent the day chasing balls, a really yucky looking squeaky hot dog, and once, a chicken! Good thing she's quick!
This is my favorite photo of the day. The smoke was wafting up the hill. Will is walking up in the center. Tony and Riley Dog are to the right. All of the snow hasn't melted yet but I tried to stomp every pile I came across to help speed it along!
