I think spring may have come, like for real. There’s a change in the air, and I can actually see my bulbs coming up! We had a mostly sunny Easter weekend here. We took the boys down town for the Easter Egg Scramble on the library lawn. I love our town–they always put on such great events for kids downtown during holidays.
The kids could bring their Easter baskets and get treats from the different shops along Main Street. Since we already got candy at the scramble, we only stopped at a few stores for extra treats. 🙂
I had a beautiful easter morning run yesterday, complete with osprey sightings (bird nerd alert!). Even though it was pretty windy, the sun was shining and that was good enough for me! It’s so nice to see the sun regularly, after our snowy winter! It’s like everyone is starting to come out of hibernation…
After my run, we went up to my in-laws for an Easter egg hunt and lunch. I love watching the boys search frantically for their Easter baskets and Easter eggs. I’m not used to eating such a large meal in the middle of the day (complete with red wine ;-)). I felt like taking a nap afterwards, but instead decided to start raking the leaves out of some of my flower beds and my herb garden.
It’s amazing how much a little bit of gardening will get you feeling the spring fever! I can’t wait to see flowers and get my herbs into the ground. I ordered a germination station on Saturday to start planting our seeds. I’m going to put it in the boys’ playroom, so they can watch the seeds grow before they get transplanted into the garden. I haven’t had a garden since I grew up in this house, so I’m beyond excited to have one again!
