Ahhh, spring!!!

This week has been gorgeous and it's only getting better!! Today it is supposed to be 76!

All of us have been spending a ton of time outside this week!! Tuesday, Chris and I were out shopping and came across a consignment store while going to Rite Aid. There were some little kid bikes outside, so we thought we'd check it out. Jack doesn't have a 2 wheeler, just his Radio Flyer big wheel, so we thought we'd see if they had any little boy bikes! There was one for 10 bucks!! What a steal, we bought it! He. Loves. It! The three of us rode our bikes down to the lake and playground yesterday. Macy was a little sad to hear that we did this while she was at school, but we made up for it!! He really took to the bike well. I remember it taking Macy several months to figure out how the pedals worked! Not Jack! *giggle* He's a daredevil, taking the turns at full force!! He's had a couple of falls, but gets right back up!


Macy and Daddy playing football.


Our magnolia tree is just about to full bloom now! It smells so wonderful and is so pretty!! I wish it would look like that all year round (they are messy!). I also found some Bleeding Hearts peeking and the Spirea is in bloom! Looking forward to May 15th when I can plant more flowers and then mulch! Ahh, I love the smell of fresh mulch!


The countertop is slated to be installed tomorrow! Yay!! I put the first coat of paint on the walls last night, it is looking mighty nice!! If I can pull myself in from outside today, I'll put the last coat on!

I'll leave with a layout. I haven't scrapped much lately due to bronchitis, sinus infection, sheer exhaustion and prepping for my class this Sunday and prep for my next technique class! I managed to squeeze this one in a few weeks ago. It's the kids on their Gator!


Have a great day! I hope it's as beautiful where you are!

Hope you are feeling better! Sounds like a wonderful day yesterday. Awesome deal on the bike. :) Love the layout - the bright colors and bold stripes pop. tfs!

Just wait till your son wants the training wheels off and doesn’t want help riding. It would seem like a recipe for disaster... but they love that. My son rode a two wheeler much before my daughter learned too.

Great summer colored page.
