Spring has ARRIVED!!

Sidebed dead

You can't really tell by this picture, except that E and I were working on this sidebed. Let me just say, it's pain in the spring and late summer (when it starts to look shabby). But this was the first day we went out to work on it.


A little bit of work and we discovered these popping up. The hostas went from this...

to looking like this in a little less than a week...


We call this the tulip tree, I'm not sure if that's the right name or not.

The tree by my sidewalk will have beautiful purple leaves very soon, but in the meantime, I get to see these beautiful little flowers.

Mom, why do you call this a bleeding heart, does it need a bandaid?

And you know Spring has arrived when you attend your first game of the year.

Catcher Michael

Michael was catcher in I think the 2nd inning.

Ethan baseball

Ethan insisted on playing in the rocks, sand and dirt.

Trevor's game ball

And Trevor, went home with his first game ball. He had his first two hit's from the pitcher without using the tee and enjoyed his first game. It is officially spring!
