Spring is Finally Here!

We are all so excited that Spring is finally here!  Bobby is busy with outdoor projects.  Clay is getting lots of yard work jobs and skateboarding everywhere!  Reed is breaking away from playing Minecraft to soak up some sun.  I'm loving that I'm already sunburned and Blossom is naked in the yard half the time!

Baby chicks in the brooder box are just about to be put outside, and the big chickens are LOVING the arrival of delicious bugs ;)

Blossom's cousins from Charlotte made a visit this weekend to check out a kids event at the Arboretum.  They did all the "event activities" and then we all wandered into the woods for some creek play time.  Here's Blossom and her cousin Hudson enjoying the chilly water!
Reed was, of course, climbing on everything he could find (we was fairly upset that most of the trees were thin rhododendrons).
I spent Sunday digging Blossom's sand box bigger.  I made it about triple sized.  As it was, if you got 2 kids in there and they had toys, there was really no room left to play.  Bobby was glad for me to use up some old stumps, too.
When I did the first version of this, I hauled the river sand home in 5 gallon buckets in the back of my little Honda.  But now... Bobby got a truck - woo-hoo!!  He is putting it to good use immediately.  Though it still took a couple trips to get all the sand.
He is now busy at work on a special surprise for our nearly 4yo.  I'll surely post pictures soon!
