Winter vs. Spring

I think it might officially be spring around here!  We had a few nice days at the end of April/start of May and then we welcomed 8" of snow on May 2nd that cancelled school!  It melted within a few days and I think we are in the clear now!

We've been getting outside as often as we can - especially this week.  I worked at 2 a.m. (until 1 p.m.) this week so tiring out the kids and ensuring myself some sleep was important!  Joe is pretty good at bedtime but Amelia has been struggling lately.  She comes out several times because she "needs to talk to me" or she "needs something."  All the time outside eliminated that - she was exhausted!

Some pictures from our recent adventures (mostly) outside:

Amelia's new bike - handed down from a co-worker's daughter :)

Joe can bubble-mow for hours - literally!

Fearless guy who loves, loves, loves playgrounds

Fun at the MN Zoo!

We have all been enjoying the time outside these past couple of weeks and are looking forward to a fun summer!
