Bye bye Winter

Oh yes, this is noteworthy and there's no containing our glee.

Yesterday the weather changed and the snow started melting...big time!

There are puddles and streams of water everywhere, daring you to jump and splash and celebrate the big melt.

It's not that we don't like snow. We just don't like it in the middle of April.

It was super refreshing to walk in our rain boots yesterday evening, without hats and gloves, though of course you'll notice that a winter coat is still in order.

Kaylee was a bit bedraggled by it all though...didn't really seem like her type of evening fun!

When Claire saw a stream where there is usually just a field, she couldn't resist walking out into it for a little exploration. She is her dad's girl!

Kaylee's frown says it all. Oh how she makes me laugh sometimes!

It may look like that's a small creek, but in all our years of living here, I've never seen water there before! That tells you how much snow run-off is going on now.

Glad it will be spring soon!


  1. Hold on a minute..this is a whole new look!!!!!!! Love it!
    FYI it's going to be 80 degrees in Corpus Christi tomorrow:) I'm lovin being in warm weather near the Gulf! Hope Italy has a warm welcome for you.

  2. Love the new look! It reminds me of you: inviting, warm, lots of fun stories and engaging! Thinking of you as you head out tomorrow!
