The Joy of Spring

Spring is here! For the first time since the 1800's, Minnesota saw a March without any snow.  It's simply amazing...the grass is turning green, the trees are budding, and flowers are starting to poke through the ground.  It is simply lovely to be free of the snow and cold!

The kids have been able to play outside the last few weeks at daycare...apparently, Ava didn't want to come in one day, and sulked in her highchair over lunch.  She refused to eat lunch or even drink any milk because she didn't want to come in from outside!  I can't say I blame her...

One night last week, Ava even gave up her CC to Scooter...she happily pushed him around the yard.


And then Scooter had a chance to ride her tricycle - since his legs are so short, Ava kindly wheeled him around.



With the new season comes a reason to eat a little better - pool season will be here before we know it!  However, I thought I would treat us and bought some Golden Chocolate Oreos last week...kinda like a reverse Oreo - vanilla cookie with chocolate on the inside.  They are SO good.  And SO messy.



Ava's such an active girl, that I like to capture these moments when I can.  Our little angel...


I think Ava might end up being a shoe-girl.  She loves clearing out all of my boots in the closet...thank goodness many of the shoes are out of her reach!  She seems to really like this pair - I've found them all over the main floor of our house.



These are just some random pics from before dinner the other day.  I'm not sure what she was trying to accomplish with the chairs - notice how she's trying to line them up so carefully...

They do so many funny (STRANGE!) things these days! And what is the facination with shoes?!? LOVE the pic of her sleeping- they are so sweet and peaceful. It's rare in our house too!
