Extra spring in our steps

The spring brings with it so many wonderful things to do! Though I'm still convinced that we will have at least one more snow fall before the month is out (and maybe even after), that didn't stop us from enjoying the beautiful weather this past week by spending much of it out of doors.

Already this season we have found emerging tulips and buds on tree limbs. On our walks we have enjoyed a lot of bird sightings, including cardinals, purple finches, yellow finches, sparrows, jays, blue birds, ducks, geese, and, just a few days ago, we were lucky enough to spot the beautiful Sandhill Cranes returning to their nesting ground, which just happens to be right next door.

Also on walks we've splashed in puddles, played in the final remaining mounds of snow, and studied the melt water run-off patterns (he got a real kick out of that).

We've even pulled out some of the summer toys for their first uses in the new year. He was particularly eager about the sand box and the sidewalk chalk.
