First BBQ Of The Year

Avery on the patioWe have been experiencing some amazing weather this week.  Perhaps this is normal? I don’t know since this is our first Spring in Fort Collins but I’ll take it.  It’s been sunny and in the 60s outside.

Yesterday was the best with the wind finally calming down to a gentle breeze.

We took advantage of this awesome weather by busting out the grill for the first time this year.

Of course we had to inspect all the things to make sure they were in proper working order.

Avery smelling charcoal “Okay Dads, this charcoal seems like it’s alright.”

Avery smelling the grill grate“Yeah, I think that is safe to grill with.”

Avery smelling the grill chimney“Okay you can use this.”

Then we went to the fence to go say hi to our friends in the back.

Avery walking in the backyardIt was lovely out and it was nice to be able to relax outside for a couple of hours.

Avery does really well in the backyard.  He gets along with the two dogs that live behind us and with the older dog that lives to the right.  He will walk over to say “Hi” and then move along to something else.

Being able to hang out on the patio enjoying the weather is a wonderful thing to be able to do with your dog.

I look forward to a lot more backyard time with Avery this spring and summer.


  1. I’m jealous – we just got 6 inches of snow since yesterday and it’s O degrees F. UGH. That’s 15 centimeters and -18 C. :P

    • Heather, ugh indeed! No worries, I’m sure we’ll get hit with some more snow soon. Fort Collins weather is crazy! :)

  2. Ha, ha! I love his inspection. I won’t show the pugs this post. They love afternoons by the grill. The weather looks great there!
