Spring is here!

Or, almost here anyway.  Spring officially arrives on Friday, but temperatures have *finally* started rising and we have been enjoying some sunshine and warmer weather for the last week.  It is so very much appreciated by me - and the kids too!  They're happy we can finally be outside!

Last week we visited the zoo for the first time this year!

There was still snow piled up in the parking lot and temperatures were in the 40s while we were there, but when it's 40 degrees and sunny after months of temperatures that make your face hurt it feels glorious!

Last year we didn't get to the zoo until the very end of March!

We've been playing outside (in the front yard because the backyard is currently a swamp.  Can't wait for it to dry out!) and riding bikes, grilling burgers, and we've even had the windows open to welcome some fresh air!  Love it!

They're standing on the wood chip pit courtesy of the tree we removed. Yep, that mess is still there.  Was kind of hoping this year it would self-heal under the snow... it did not.

All this fresh air and sunshine *almost* makes me want to do some spring cleaning.  Almost.
