Like others have posted... Oxalis. Now the trick is pulling it up before the little okra-like pods burst open sending the next generation out!

It is probably either Yellow Trefoil or Yellow Oxalis.

If it is the same thing I have in my lawn it is creeping buttercup. Very invasive, spreads, and really does "creep" over the ground. Hard to kill but do your best or it will take over!

It could be a creeping jenny, which is a small yellow weed similar to a buttercup, only with smaller petals, it is a pretty little weed, but rather invasive and spreads very quickly. Get rid.
