First Day of Spring!

Today is officially the first day of Spring! With our new colder climate, I appreciate nice days even more than before. Last year, we started a new family tradition by celebrating the first day of spring with our first picnic of the season. And keeping with the tradition, we enjoyed one today along with some quality time at the park.
When we first moved here in September, we were lucky to find Pine Hill Lakes Park. This has become one of our favorites. Not only because it is close to the house but it has everything you could think of; nature trails, walking trails, lakes, playgrounds for both kids, ducks and an added bonus, it is absolutely gorgeous.
With our beautiful spring weather the boys had a blast today. We played at the playground, walked the nature trails, fed the ducks, and had our first picnic of the season. There is just something about eating outside that makes everything just taste better. Don't you think?

We had so much fun that Rylan pooped out on the short ride home. (I love this picture because it looks like he could not decide if he wanted to finish eating his snack or fall asleep)

The plan was after Rylan's nap both boys were going to paint bird houses. But instead Holden decided he would paint both since Rylan was sleeping. I am sure Rylan won't mind, this year that is. And we found the perfect place for these little jewels too. Now all we need is some bird seed and birds!

Happy Spring Yall!
