First BBQ session of the season

Well the sky was blue and the sun was out yesterday. I'd say that calls for busting out the BBQ!
Ryan grilled us up some delicous turkey burgers and I wandered around outside taking pictures. As long as the sun was on us it wasn't too bad out, but as soon as it started to dip below the Olympics, it got cold and we could see our breath. Luckily, that's about the time the burgers got done.
I can't wait for nice weather and hanging out on our back deck!

Almost done!

Getting the bun all ready. I ALWAYS make a face with my ketchup and mustard. Silly I know, but I like it. :)

Finished product!

Some pictures from the last two days

Well Ryan finally sold the BMW yesterday. Yay! As part of the payment he got this random guitar. Hmmm... ok. Also, you can't see it in the picture, but Ryan's forehead got attacked by a rouge strap when he was loading the BMW on the tow dolly. Luckily he is ok, but he has a nice bump and bruise to show for it. Poor guy. Maybe thats why he has such a funny look in the picture below. ;)

Later that night, we decided to go for a drive and take some pictures.

We ended up at the Seattle Temple. It's a really cool building to take pictures of. Unfortunately, the gate was closed so we were limited on our shots.

After that we cruised over to Bellevue to see if we could find anything neat. We ended up in the park and got a couple cool shots, but the mist/rain was kind of a bummer.

Cool tree

Today when I got home from work this little bird was outside our bedroom window. I have no idea what he was, but he was really cute! Yay for our little bird friend.

Now if only the humming birds would come back.

Woo hoo I started a blog!

Ok. So I've been thinking about doing this(making a blog) for awhile. Never really was inspired enough though.

But.... We recently purchased a new DSLR(Nikon D90) camera and this seemed like a great way to share all the wonderful photos we hope to start taking and to document the semi-interesting things that go on in our life. :)

Well we got our camera on Friday the 20th, and since it had been raining in the mountains we decided not to go snowboarding. Sad I know, but that gave us the perfect opportunity to go out and try the new camera.

We headed down to Edmonds because I was hoping to catch something that resembled a sunset... We got a couple good pictures, but our hands started to freeze. We ended up leaving and got some mexican food in Kenmore. Afterwards, we went over to Kirkland to get some cool night shots.

Here are a couple of the shots we got. Feel free to tell me if you like them or not, I'm just getting started so my feelings wont be hurt.

I love how dark and ominous this picture looks.

Me freezing my butt off

We really could have used a fire...

These are some really cool night shots we got down on a dock in Kirkland. I still can't believe they came out so bright!

This little guy is my favorite of all our fish, his name is Fiend and I LOVE him. He's such a fun little guy. Not the best picture I know, but since we only have pet fish, I need something to show off. :)

We were having some fun around the house on Saturday. And by fun, I mean me being weird. What can I say, I like my stuffed animals. :)

Spring is coming!

These little guys were trying to poke out. I hope it doesn't snow or get cold and scare them away!
