Spring is in the Air!


Signs of spring are popping up all over and it just really makes everything better, doesn't it! I was so thrilled the other day on the way home from work to see some trees greening up already!! The warm sunny skies just make all the stresses of work, collecting stuff for tax prep and tidying up the ever messy house simply disappear. Even though there may be snow forecast for tomorrow (!!!), Maddy and I headed to our neighborhood school yard tonight so that she could practice some of her climbing. I swear that girl is part monkey!




No fear -- the girl has no fear!



Kind of a scary-looking apparatus, isn't it?! She loves to climb it.




Those front teeth are finally starting to come in! I almost hate to see her sweet toothless smile change!

I love finally getting outside and playing with Katie.

Maddy looks like she was having a ball on the playground.

Will you please send some of your Spring up our way? No snow.

Maddy is adorable, Grace desperately wants to lose a tooth! And she's a climber monkey like Maddy too. I think they'd be best buddies.

We are soooo ready for spring too. It has been an extremely long winter this year.

Cute pictures of Miss M at the playground! I think she is part monkey!

I just love those first signs of spring. The daffodils just put a smile on my face.

Enjoy the good weather. If WI is like MI, its spring one day and winter the next!

Kim said...

I sure hope some of those signs of Spring come this way soon!

Love the photos of Maddy!

Good luck in the next basketball game. Won't it be great to see both go into the final together!

Your dafodils are beautiful and so is Maddy! I will take a nice day here or there and can put up with the cold a little longer since it is now April and warmer temps should be n their way:)!

So glad Spring is heading your way. We are a bit behind you and still hoping for Spring! We had snow again this weekend! UGG! And that is the major reason for my blue mood! Come on Spring!

Maddy looks like she had lots of fun- yes- lil monkey!

Maybe for Christmas she'll get those two front teeth!! I hated when Liam's came in... just seemed to be another rite of passage passing me by!! HAHA!!

She is SO adorable! She has the best smile!! And she and Em would get along well... Em has NO fear either. Oh the trouble they could get into at the park!!

Dawn S. said...

Lovely!! We on the other hand had SNOW today!!

Angie said...

I am loving the Spring weather too, but we have had a lot of rain the past few days. She is so cute and I bet she'll be athletic!

Daffodils...ahh, so nice to see them back again! We are still staring at some serious snow out here in Colorado, and more to come this weekend, so I will just stare at your photos instead of enjoying my own springtime weather! :)
