Last week, it snowed here in Austin, Texas and today it is a blissful, beautiful 75 degrees. Amazing, isn't it, how much difference a week makes?
I love the springtime, love everything about spring. From the new leaves on the trees, to the nest of baby birds on my back patio to the clear blue sky filled with huge white clouds. I love going to the park with my boys-- riding the swings and the seesaw, getting beat at basketball by my oldest, playing tag with my youngest. We have a beautiful lake only a few minutes bike ride from my house and I love taking my kids on picnics there. This weekend my hubby's planning on renting a couple kayaks so we can all kayak from one end of the lake to the other. I've never kayaked before-- usually he and my oldest go alone-- so I'm a little nervous, but in a good way. And if all else fails, the three year old and I can sit on the shore and feed the ducks. That's always fun :)
So, I guess for me, Springtime means family time. Getting outdoors and hanging out with my all male family. Doing little things that aren't very special on their own, but that together add up to a lot of great memories for me. And this spring, there's the added benefit of my April release, Tease Me, to add a little more joy to my life.
So what about you? What do you like to do in the Spring?
