We had the kids this Friday afternoon, and I told them we were going for a walk. I met with resistance. In fact Isaac never did get into it, lagging along and complaining whenever he had an opportunity, but Irene can turn anything into an adventure, and she was on a nature walk, looking for signs of spring.
We walked along the Green River Trail.
We found buds swelling on bushes and trees, some pussy willows showing white, and the first dandelion!
Irene kept up a steady stream of chatter, talking about nature, and also planning how she will turn her playhouse into a garden shop this spring. Spring was very much in the air and on her mind.
And then, tired as she was, she saw this tree up ahead and had to get there.
Grandpa helped her find a seat.
I do love sunny days, shared with good company.
