I think it's spring!!

Wow, this weekend was gorgeous!!! We actually turned on the air conditioner yesterday, got a bit hot in the house. But the weather outside was beautiful. We cleaned off the outside table, put up the umbrella and had lunch on the patio. I had to scramble around to find the sunscreen because both kids had baseball games in the afternoon and the sun was hot.

We went hiking this morning with some friends at a new spot called Whitney Canyon trail. It was freeeezing when we got there and windy. But once we got down into the Canyon, it was beautiful. No wind, nice and calm. A nice sunny morning! We hiked along a little creek and had to keep crossing back and forth over the creek. The kids loved it.

Here's one of the 3 kids on a pretty cool log. The sun was in the wrong place for this photo, but when the kids are ready to pose on a log, I have to go with it!!

The Lupine was in full bloom and was gorgeous. I couldn't remember what it was called, so I had to consultant the expert (my hubbie!) when I got home for the name of the flower.

We then went to lunch at Corner Bakery (which I had never been to, it was delicious) and then shopped a bit for Craig's birthday. What a fun day with the kiddies! Hope you all had a great weekend. I've been busy crafting and scrapping for April kit reveals so stop back on April 1st. No foolin'!! Ha! I'm so funny....

Thank you so much Mara!! I love your spring photos!! Isn't it nice to get out and enjoy the sunshine?? Up here in Canada we've had tonnes of snow and it's just starting to melt - no flowers yet - so I'm drooling over all that flora!!

Ohhh! I am so jealous! It was still too cool here in Western NC to be comfortable outside for long. I am sooo ready for spring. Looks like you guys had a blast. Looking forward to your April 1st reveal!
