Celebrating Spring

Spring is here, the sun is shining, and my kids are happy and healthy.  A mother couldn’t ask for much more.  Living in the Midwest, I welcome spring with open arms (especially after a long cold winter).  Spring is all about blossoms, wind chimes, raindrops, strawberries, watermelon, and chirping birds.  The warm weather has definitely brought a smile to my face and has allowed us to do more outdoor activities.

Recently we have been celebrating the sun in our backyard oasis by creating flower beds, water features, tire jumps, and sand tables. This is the first time I have had a backyard of my own and so far it’s amazing. Let the fun begin!

Digging, scooping, and pouring dirt in flower containers.
