Spring has spung!!

See that “mountain” behind the yard? We call that builders hill. Left over dirt from building this neighborhood.
(please ignore the sad garden..flowers will be there soon)
Best sleding hill in the winter. But come spring, best place to have a picnic!!  So after school the other day we packed up, invited a friend & headed to the top.
Looking back at the house.

The view was nice ....

& the snacks were yummy! Such a nice spring day :)

But……we woke up yesterday morning and ….
                                           READY.......SET...........
GO!!!!!!!
The warmth has arrived! Who knew how great this day would be? It was a tank top & flip flops kind of day!! Yes it was overly warm for this time of year, but whose complaining? Not us!!


Girls did some “gardening” in the swing area. (then added water to this & gave each other a mud treatment! AHHH!)

Found this …..

And what better way to get cleaned up?.......
Today it could get into the upper 80’s!
Woohoo!! Crazy!!

It reached the mid-80s here yesterday. But that meant storms overnight. I'll take it!

I bet that hill is good for sledding in the winter.
