warm spell.

we had a brief fling with spring last week. and then we got more snow. and sleet. and rain. and sun. but temperatures are still on the low side. we did manage to hang out in the yard for a few of those nice days. playing in the sandbox. exploring in the dirt. raking up leaves. cleaning up the garden.

i'm pretty much ready to get to the good stuff already: freshly cut grass. flowers blooming. leaves giving us lots of shade. filling up the pool.

come on summer, we're ready for you!

maple syrup festival

when i was a kid i remember going on lots of different field trips with my family. a few of them then became family traditions we'd do every year.

well, now that i have my own family it's up to us as the parents, to start our own traditions. last spring, we visited our local maple syrup festival. i remember going on a class trip when i was a kid. taking my own kids brought the wonderful memories back.
