I.am.so.glad.Spring.is.here. It's that simple. I do.not. like Winter. Everything is dead and dreary and you're (basically) stuck inside for like three months. This year Spring is taking a little extra time to awaken, if you will. It's been pretty Winter-like since March 21st. But here it is April 1st and it's finally warm. Finally sunny and there are finally different colored blooms springing up all over my yard. It's warm enough that the boys got to play in a rain barrel at their bestie's house over the weekend. Well. There was actually still a little nip in the air but 2 and 4 year olds don't care one bit. They played and played until they were all completely soaked. They started by watering all the plants in the yard and that quickly turned into everyone being soaked from head to toe and stomping in every (muddy) puddle they could find. Ah, to be a child!
My husband is a firefighter so his schedule is pretty out of the norm, let's just say he's not a nine-to-fiver. Since he worked on Easter Sunday we are having Easter Monday at our house. The Easter Bunny made a visit last night and left way too much candy, toys, eggs and money for the boys. I didn't get any pictures of the inside gifts from the Bunny but was able to steal a few of them finding their eggs out in the back yard this morning. I'm thinking that having Easter Monday at our house is even better than Easter Sunday since it was such a cold, rainy day yesterday. Funny how the Universe works like that ;)
