Oh man, Spring here comes early and is amazing! Although I feel like we totally earn it after months of no sunshine at all. It's a pretty nice reward.
The tree tunnel on our street is filling out! Can I get a hooooo-ray?! It's my favorite part about where we live. It makes our ordinary suburban cul-de-sac feel really special.
I made Harvey this sort of ridiculous bow-tie to wear on Easter. I was going to make some suspenders too, but I ran out of time :(
I can't stop taking cloud pictures! Spring here is really the best.
I made some jelly-bean-bags to go in the young man's Easter basket. They were pretty fast to whip up and I used fleece instead of felt (stretchy and soft!).
Evan surprised me with these fancy cupcakes. We were going to share them and then I accidentally ate them all. I'm such a health nut. I keep thinking of doing a sugar fast, and I just can't make myself do it. Whenever I meet someone who doesn't eat sugar, well, I think they're kind of weird. (maybe I'm just jealous of they're self-control?)
I moved the cacti/succulent family outside. They are recovering from the long winter too.
It looks like little Ireland here and we spend all day outside. When we've been inside for too long, Harvey will walk around to all the doors that lead outside and start banging/whining. He's happiest outside.
We've been landscaping the heck out of our yard and it's been so fun to work in the yard as a family (it's actually even funner when someone is napping!). We went to a nursery to buy some trees and they were going out of business (sad), and so everything was on a really good sale... and we came home with twelve trees! I figure that since we can't live in an actual forest like I want, we will just plant our own forest. Seems smart.
We went back to the beach (can't. stay. away.) and Evan got to try out his birthday kite (oh, it's a dragon).
Our friends have baby goats. This little guy kept trying to eat my sweater.
I'm getting better at chilling out and letting Harvey make a total mess. My friend told me that her grandma used to say, "flowers and kids grow best in dirt", and I really loved that. So we're trying it out :)
