It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Spring! {Weekend Review}

^^Nothing makes me giddier this time of year than to see my little daffodils blooming!^^

Yesterday, Spring arrived in all its gusty glory.  In fact, the winds were so bad we made the national news.  A neighboring town recorded gusts topping out at 73 miles per hour.  I also received an automated call early in the afternoon that both bridges over the Snake River Canyon were closed due to semi trucks blowing over.  Scary!  It was a really nasty day.  Luckily, here on the home front we didn't experience any property damage.  The little boys and I simply hunkered down at home... without electricity or water for a couple of hours.  Turned out, since I couldn't shower or clean during nap time, I took a nap too.  A nap never felt so good!  I really needed that nap.  Funny how that works.

However, the weather over the weekend was phenomenal!  We spent time playing with friends at the park on Friday and spent most of Saturday pruning and sprucing up the yard.  Jed thought it was great fun to steal rides in the wheel barrow.  We even fired up the grill to eat our first hamburgers of the season!  The boys are getting to be quite the avid bird watchers from our kitchen window.

^^Riding in style to the park in our friends' car^^
^^Spinning till he was so dizzy he couldn't see straight^^
^^Levi constantly impresses me with his strength and agility.  Look at that one year old go!^^

Then after church on Sunday, the sun practically begged for us to go on a family bike ride!  Oh, it felt heavenly... until I got a flat tire.  So Bron and Jed rode home and came back to pick Levi and me up with the truck.  That's when we headed to the top of the hill at Indian Springs and let the kids hike around.  The view was beautiful!  We ended the evening by setting all of our dead branches and yard debris on fire... and Bron singeing every hair on the right side of his body!  What can I say?  Boys and fire.  It's like their brains shut off.  But both Jed and Levi had a blast playing in the hose.  Just a few more weeks, and they'll be running through the sprinklers again.  I'm looking forward to it.

That's our weekend in a nutshell. 

P.S.  Thank you for all of your understanding and supportive comments on this post about whether or not I need to be pursuing my talents as money-makers.  There is a time and season for everything, right?  And right now I want to be a mommy.


  1. I love these boys. They make my day when I read your blog.

  2. ah this posted just lifted my spirits a little. Spring really is coming, isnt it?!

  3. I love those pictures with the hose! They look so excited. The warmer days have gotten us excited for summer too. :)

  4. How precious are they?! I just love the innocence an imagination that little ones have.

  5. Oh, gosh, is there anything that shouts SPRING louder than flowers blooming? Love it...and love these photos. I'm a newbie to your blog. :)

  6. It looks like you've been enjoying these first few days of spring! I love watching my little daffodils and tulips sprouting in our yard, too. Although, we've only had two 50 degree days here in Connecticut. The rest have been in the 20's and 30's, and we may have another snow storm this week--Ugh! I can't believe how well Levi climbs for a one-year-old...his strength and energy must come directly from you well as his adventurous spirit. Love the picture of Jed on the swings too. Yay for days outside!

  7. We had that same crazy wind, but luckily no damage here. Last year around this time our tree was split in half by the wind. I was so glad that no one was outside when it happened. Crazy weather.

    Anyway, your photos are amazing, as always! What kind of a camera/lens do you use?


I love hearing from you! Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message.
