Spring Break!

The tulips are in bloom at the Botanical Gardens this week! They are gorgeous. I'm loving all of the sun this week, and we really have tried to take full advantage of it. We spent most of the day Wednesday outdoors, and Friday we spent about 3 hours hanging out at the gardens, watching the Raptor Show and checking out the flowers.

The gardens have giant bugs on display right now, which is cool, but I enjoyed the scarecrows and dinosaur exhibits from previous times better, I believe.

We had a really fun time on Wildflower Trail. Many of the wildflowers were indeed blooming, and the creek was flowing freely. Gannon loves to throw rocks in the water, whereas Melody loves to get IN the water!

Spring is springing around here, and for that I am very thankful. I'm not a winter girl.

Happy Spring!

Are you kidding?! I love winter!! Especially if it snows.
Well, it never snows here, so we just hope for an invitation to play in the snow from Monna and G.Daddy.
