Sunday was the first day of Spring;
and I didn't even realize it!
I did, however, take advantage of the almost 80 degree weather!
I loaded up the boys and headed to the local nature park.
We hiked around a lake--
I can't tell you how good that felt to hike again.
I had to carry Stephen on my shoulders
part of the way but it was so worth it!
After hiking the lake,
I introduced Stephen to just how cool of a mom I am.
Before our play in the water was over,
him, Seth, and I had all fallen at least once.
We were covered in algae and mud.
Our shoes were soaked.
But it was fun!
I am a bit jealous of my grand-dog.
She got to go geocaching.
So kind of her to send me a photo and flaunt it.
I will go again someday.
I will. I will. I will.
(hear my foot stamping?)
Besides hiking and playing in streams,
there is another reason that I really love Spring.
I just love those dark, ominous clouds
that are ready to burst forth in thunder and rain!

It's supposed to storm tomorrow.
Bring it on! I can't wait!
