God bless the USA (and Russian Olive trees)

I walked outside this weekend and smelled Russian Olive trees.
(which is classified as a noxious weed...rude)
This is my favorite time of year and my favorite smell ever.
I have such happy memories associated with this tree.
Mr. Nielson took me for a ride on his motorcycle so we could
 enjoy the smell even more.
He is so good to me.
We also went to get me a Dr. Pepper.  
Mr. Nielson hates Dr. Pepper, but had about half of it.
It's so nice that the weather is getting warm and everything is greening up.
I love taking the garbage out without shoes on.
And, I love putting Lottie in white onesie's and
letting her play around the yard.
 I also love making Lottie take the garbage out.  
She is such a good little worker, besides half this garbage sack his 
full of her diapers anyway. 

 *** Many have asked me why the tops of my feet look bruised,
and I will tell you:
My feet were not burned in the accident (thanks minnetonka moccasins.
Since I was burned over 80% of my body, the surgeons used the skin on the tops 
of my feet over and over again to cover other parts of my body.  
They will be forever bruised because of that process.
So basically that means my feet skin could be
my cheeks or chest or hands-or worse...one can never be to sure.***
(as some of you will recall this AWESOME photo!!)
