Round 2 with the Round Up

Well so far this year we are 2 for 2. Our "Saturday Outside" plan has proven to be a success.

In the morning we went to an Emergency Preparedness fair. It was quite interesting, and the best part was ALL of the food...I was definitely motivated to find some more options with our powdered milk!

After that we drove over to Queen Creek for a rodeo. A brand new Equestrian Center had their grand opening. It was a lot of fun being out there with the horses and all the livestock. It was a beautiful day and we had so much fun!

With all this warm weather we're having, the weeds are already starting to pop up everywhere. Last year was an absolute nightmare. The people we bought the house from had obviously NOT sprayed any kind of pre-emergent over the previous summer. The weeds were sprouting up faster than we could pull, spray, and pay landscapers to get rid of!

This year I've already started pulling weeds everyday and this week I'm spraying the pre-emergent as it definitely helped after the summer monsoons.

I just hope that it's not like last year...

Wish we lived a little closer so we could hang out more; the Emergency Preparedness fair sounds like fun! I know how frustrating those weeds can be. I fight them every year. Urgghh!
