We are on a journey, sojourners on this earth. Let us share with you the highs and lows of our lives. Heaven is a sweeter place now that we have two beautiful granddaughters waiting there for us.

A Sure Sign of Spring

The weather has finally warmed up and we are all loving it! The boys enjoyed a walk with Papa and Mimi when they were over on the weekend and Dave captured the 'double-decker' stroller. Quite the neat way for them both to travel.

Aidan was very taken by the 'ducks' and has wanted to go back to the park everytime he is at our house now. I love the vibrant colors of the male mallard in the spring!
And finally, my daffodils, lovingly planted on a cold and windy October afternoon, have opened up to embrace the sunshine! They are so cheery and I love opening the blinds in the morning and seeing them right there in the front flowerbed under my living room windows.
These big 'King Alfred' daffodils were supposed to be the last ones that opened but I guess the spring was just too cold. I am sure the rest of the bulbs won't be far behind with the beautiful weather we have had this week.

Beautiful post and photos! No "other" news must be good news! The womb is still the best place for now and we're thankful for every day. I hope Jody gets to go home for Easter.

Great spring pictures. I LOVE the spring. Today it is pouring rain mind you but now we know it's not too far off.
Really random question, where were you walking with the boys? I am trying to figure out what trail that is and can't. haha :o)

Fishtrap Creek Park down the street from us Courtney! It's an awesome park complete with a playground, ducks and even softball diamonds to watch games(little boys and big boys both like doing that!)
