Sometimes something quite beautiful is right in your own back yard.  Although this is not my back yard (I wish) this beautiful sea of flowers is right off the freeway and just down the street.  A small and quaint church has decided to do a new but old style outreach.  They have begun to plant these daffodils and have covered the grounds in flowers.  They have also spent some time relocating some old antique cabins along the property and have set up a historical type place to tour.  It is just in it’s beginning stages but is open to the public while in process.  It’s beautiful.  I can not wait to visit again to see it’s process all along the way.

Keep your eyes open friends.  Something wonderful might spring up along the way.

Sometimes rainy days can be quite wonderful.  As I told you before, Max and I have decided to go on outings each week and this does mean…rain or shine.  On this day, again with Grandpa, it looked quiet dark and gloomy.  Afraid that it would not be a good time we trudged forward anyway and wouldn’t you know it…It cleared just enough for us to have a quite lovely day.  By the end our shadows had appeared and we ended up eating huge ice-cream cones from a little walk up “pit stop” type food shack.  I do believe I will be returning there to check out the rest of the menu sometime soon. (ahem…yum!)

Enjoy your spring friends…even when it rains.

Spring has sprung here in the Northwest.  Maxie and I have decided to spend more time this year doing small outings.  Grandpa joined us at our neighborhood park for a picnic. We had so much fun.  Thank you Grandpa for a great day.

A boy and his fort.

It is not unusual, when raising boys, to come across a newly built fort.  This one was very elaborate.  I am sure this fort was built by an older sibling.  It came equipped with a dvd player and twinkly lights.  I am often surprised by the toys that live in the doll house though.  Just because Max is a boy it does not mean this doll’s house will ever house dolls.  Halo guys have now “taken over.”  This fort is complete. (for now.)

Enjoy your adventure Max.
