Today was one of our first 'spring like' days. It was wonderful.

My boy read in his favorite reading spot.

i spent the afternoon outside, hand stitching doll parts (i'll post about those in a different post) and counting birds. The Great Backyard Bird Count started today. :) We participate in this every year. i planted lettuce and spinach in one of the small raised beds.

My boy spent most of the day outside running, jumping, climbing. Rufus the beagle followed him everywhere, and ran, jumped and climbed too. The dog even climbed up into the tree fort and slid down the slide!

We chased chickens, and fed treats to the goats.

We made mud pies.

lots of mud pies

We got dirt under our fingernails and had an absolutely wonderful time.


  1. Looks like everyone had a great time outdoors. We were at 66 today as well. But it's back into the freezer tomorrow.


  2. Perfectly Wonderful! Those are lucky children.
