Spring is in the air.....
So, they say Spring has begun, but I am not so sure about that. Nor are the kids. They keep saying our teachers tell us it is Spring. HA!
We did have some great weather last week and over the weekend. Jack was able to pull out his automatic baseball pitcher and bases, from Nama and Papa and get a little game going.
And thankfully it melted a good portion of our snow. But, as you can see in these pics we still have the Pontow Mountain as we are referring to it. I have chipped away at this mound, but it is a stubborn one. The kids will be in swimsuits in June and still have snow in their front yard. LOL! :)
Of course another sign of spring is the rain. Yeah I would have thought Noah's Ark was coming thru today with the amount of rain we got. But, it is great for the flowers and all the Preen I put down over the weekend to kill the weeds before they come. And it has produced the Pontow River in our backyard. Good times!
Thankfully, the rain stopped late this afternoon so the kids were able to go out and play before going to swim lessons. And of course I had to get some pics of them playing. I was freezing outside for the few minutes I was out there with them. So, I don't know how they stay out there for so long. :) It seems they are definitely getting used to it.
