I think spring really is coming...

Call me crazy but yesterday was so sunny & actually felt warm! The snow is melting. Perfect timing since we needed to get out & burn off that valentine candy energy! So while my older daughter & her friend grabbed the sleds (that finally showed up under the mound of snow) & headed to the hill while the last bit of snow hung on, Addy & I ran around out back .

Its spring ! Right mom?

She was determined to swing even though the back half is still filled with snow. Notice the different color pants then the first photo. Yea, after the slide we needed to change. There may be grass areas, but they're super soggy :)


Yes, that's green grass in there!

Tiny buds!!

Hello Spring!!
Thursdays high is 57 ! I may just have to bust out the flip flops ! But as with all winters here, it will get cold again. It will snow again. But this week is a nice brake & we're loving that!

I love that last picture! I'm hankering for spring as well. Tulips are in the markets now, so it shan't be long! :D

Also, what a nice comment you made on my blog today! I do hope the day comes when you all travel to my side of the world - perhaps I can have you over for a visit. :) So glad we met, Trisha.

We'll take the warm days whenever we can -- I think here in the Midwest, we are more appreciative of the random 50-60 days during the waning days of winter. :)
