A few weeks ago I noticed my bulbs were starting to pop out of the ground...which means spring is just around the corner, right? We have had a crazy winter with all sorts of weather, and the kids have been antsy to pull out their bikes. The other day the sun graced us with its presence and we had a warm, sunny afternoon. Owen and Lauren made the most of it, spending a few hours riding around the cul-de-sac on their bikes and playing "rock contest." What is rock contest? Actually, I have no idea which one of them came up with the idea, but they both shoved as many rocks in their pockets as they could, then lined them up along the garden wall. I was the judge and had to choose which group of rocks was the coolest. Amazingly, the results were a tie, and they asked if they could have an Otter Pop for their trophies. They also asked if they could run through the sprinkler, but I could only go so far...it's not springtime quite yet!
