A glimpse of spring to come

Oh, it is in the 20s this morning. 
I just let the dogs out and I need to put on another layer.  
Just a couple days ago, the kids were running around in shorts 
asking when they can go swimming.  
Mother Nature is a trickster. 

I am reliving the last week today and the warm sunny weather 
that I so desperately want back! 
We made our inaugural visit to the zoo last week. 
Not all the animals were out, but we got to feed the ducks, see the giraffes, 
hear the lions roar, and see some very rambunctious monkeys. 
My favorite animal, the giraffe, is so amazing to watch! 

Lil Miss' favorite part of the zoo is the train.

Sidewalk chalk season has started.  
Our driveway is a burst of color in little random drawings.  
The kids have already put my talents to the test with 
their chalk requests. 
"Mom, make Rupunzel!"
Mom, draw a zoo with monkeys"
Mom, draw a castle."
The kid's also get room to draw. 
Gigi put her solar system knowledge to the test 
and drew the sun and all the planets in order. 
Nothing is more fun than exploring more of the city 
we live in with the kids.

The grand opening for the Science Center at the Putnam 
Museum was this past weekend, so we spent a couple hours 
exploring. 


We all enjoy sunglass weather.
And don't forget cookouts with friends! 
Spring also brings Easter and Easter Egg hunts.  
We did our part and participated in our church's egg hunt this Sunday. 
There were alot of eggs, and alot of kids so it was more of a speed egg retrieval 
than a egg "hunt".  
We will get more egg hunts in this weekend with both sides of the family. 
Spring will return and we will finally see our tulips bloom, 
and open up our windows and doors once again. 
For now I just have to hold off Nate a couple more 
nights, so he doesn't get the electric blanket out ad put it on the bed again.
