Hint of Spring - Part 2

The picture recap from our first hint of spring continues...











I'm convinced that the weather now changes based upon my posts.  If I post snowy pictures, we get spring weather.  When I post spring weather, the temperature drops and winter returns.  They've already pushed back the Cherry Blossom estimate bloom date this week because winter returned with cold winds this past week.  Let's see what shows up next...

Hint of Spring!

It was bound to happen - as soon as I posted snow pictures, spring made an early arrival here in the DC region.  We enjoyed temperatures in the 60's this past weekend, so we were able to escape the house to enjoy the warm weather and the longer hours of sunshine on Sunday!

On Saturday, I arrived home from some errands to find Georgia and Nick doing some spring cleaning around the house.  I told Nick he should have bribed Georgia with 5 cents per leaf that she picked up and threw away...

On Sunday we hit up the park for the first time in a LONG time!  Georgia and I used to spend hours everyday after work/school playing on the slides and swings, so it was nice to get back there and enjoy some time in the sun.  We're big fans of Daylight Saving time around here...







Georgia had a blast on the swings.  Typically, she only tolerates them for a few minutes and then wants out to go back to the slides.  But, she was all about swinging next to Mommy and Daddy this weekend!
