April in the D (lots and lots of pics)

Please pardon my giddiness. It has been a REALLY long winter up here. If there's a flower blooming within a one mile radius of me, I will take a picture of it. If there's a kid wearing sunglasses within a few feet of me, I will take a picture of them. If there is any outside fun happening, it will be photographed. Why? Because before we know it, we will be INSIDE again, escaping yet another cold winter, and I want to remember all of this. Warm thoughts, warm thoughts, warm thoughts.....

It is seriously windy today - but it is a very warm wind. In a few more hours it will be raining, so I am taking in all the sunshine today - and the eighty degree temps. We will be back in the sixties tomorrow. Which, by the way, is the normal high for this time of year.

We took a walk this morning - and stopped to take a picture on this rock. Emily loves this rock. We planned our whole walk just so we could sit on it.
Paige is now over her "baby" swing. She only wants to use this one. Only she uses it Superman style. A trick she learned from Olivia next-door.

Fun fact about Paige this week - her new phrase is now "I need....." instead of "I want...". She used this one at my cousin's surprise 50th b-day party this past Saturday. We were all eating cake, and Paige comes up to me and says, "I need cake."

Of course you do darling. We all NEED cake.


Some of the flowers we saw on our walk this morning -



And these are the blooms on the tree outside my office/scraproom/playroom/guest room. It exploded since last Friday. The tree, not the room.



And for those of you who live in warmer temperatures year round, wondering why the heck I would ever leave that....look at those dang tulips!! Look at them!! A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. 

Just so you know, these are not my tulips. I took their picture on our walk this morning. Come next spring - I will have my own tulips. I will be planting the bulbs this fall. Don't let me forget!
Have a wonderful Monday!!! And really, I haven't had any sugar today. I am just high on SPRING. :)
