Spring Cleaning

It's the Friday of the Easter long weekend and I woke up to a bright sunshiny day! Blue skies and wonderful weather. So decided it was a good opportunity to get out in the yard and start sprucing things up. There were a lot of leaves left over from the fall, and just random debris that collected during the winter.

The boys were thrilled by the clean-up efforts because it unearthed a lot of long forgotten toys that had hibernated beneath the snow all winter. So while I raked, the boys took turns dropping their newly re-found toys onto the pile of leaves, which I would then kick, to the utter delight of the Shelties, so that they didn't become buried again.

Romeo's favorite re-find was definitely his basketball. He will push this ball around and around and around the yard, ad nauseum. He kept it up for a full 2 hours while I was raking and bagging.

Kinda like this ...

Gio entertained himself with the various other balls that were unearthed, but soon tired of Romeo's obsessive "round the yard" game, mostly because I wouldn't let him bark while chasing Romeo and the ball. So instead, Gio found himself a bright sunny patch to lay down in and scratch his brain.

And supervise my labors.

I wound up getting *most* of the leaves collected, filling a grand total of 7 garbage bags. PHEW! This effort was promptly followed by a nap. I love long weekends!

Can't believe Romeo pushed that ball right under his brother! LOL! Cute!

I love when Romeo pushes the ball under Gio and Gio hardly even blinks as ball and brother go under him. That was hilarious!
