Can anyone ID this little vine

These small flowers are taking over my lawn. Help! One variety has a network of vines and very small yellow flowers. The other has even smaller whitish/purple flowers, but I don't think it's a vine. Any help identifying these little guys would certainly be appreciated.

I also thought black medock on the first photo. It has been one of the few prolific weed plants in my greenhouses that I methodically have had to weed out by hand.

Wow. What a great forum. Thanks so much folks! Now I need to figure out how to get rid of them.

Just pull them up - soon, before they seed. Mowing will also keep them in check as will improving the grass so there are no bare patches for weeds to take advantage of.
