Spring is such a great time of the year. The days are getting longer, it’s warmer, and all the plants are budding/blooming/greening. We have hosted a few “late nights” at our house in the last few weeks with all the neighborhood kids. Two weeks ago we had 15 kids 10 and under in our backyard until 9:30. We played Red Rover and Freeze Tag. This weekend, we decided to throw an outdoor movie night. We invited three other families over to watch Despicable Me projected to a large white sheet. We started around 8:15pm and had a great time eating popcorn, quoting lines / songs, and laughing during the movie. It was a big hit not only with the neighborhood kids, but with their parents who came over and enjoyed it, too.
The warmer weather also means we are out on the green grass with the kids more, which means an opportunity to take pictures. The boy was the latest victim of mom-tographer Jen while I was at work this week.
The cold-weather plants have all been planted (spinach, peas, onions, kale, potatoes) and we have a number of starts growing aggressively in the house. It’s a great time of the year!
