Our Spring isn't into meandering at all. First it was all cozy and warm, then we got blasted with cold and rain.
When will Spring really be here?
Kaishon looks like he has some terrific friends and is enjoying the good life.

Sylvia K said...

Fun post, great photos as always! Kaishon and his friends look like they're having a great time! That's the best thing about spring after a long winter! Hope you both are having a wonderful week!

Love the light and the scents. Would love some more warmth right now though!

Eternal Lizdom said...

My senior poodle gets frisky when springs busts through. I wasn' sure she'd make it thru this past winter but spring is here and she's acting like a puppy again!

I also love my lilac bush blooming.

Sarah said...

The extra hours of daylight. The sound of crickets chirping in the evening. Seeing fireflies as the sun sets. Love spring :)

Thanks so much for stopping by my place, ddna! Your blog is fantastico!
What do I love about spring? I love the way the air feels and smells and the colors that erase the grey.

Julie said...

Spring = kids are able to get outside and play, play, play!!!

Spring means things start to happen again. Though, right now I am suffering from too many things happening all at once.

Kristina P. said...

I wish we could have spring to have spring fever. It snowed last night!

Marla said...

I love the smell of rain, Lawn mowers cutting the grass and lovely 75 degree days.

GREAT pictures!! Love your work.

So nice to meet you, I'll be back for sure~

Samantha said...

Us too!

Pam D said...

Such a lively post! I love the way you weave the photos into your story. Or maybe you just weave the words into your pictures? However you do it, it's wonderful. And around here, spring means cool mornings and evenings and low humidity; few bugs, and beautiful flowers. Unfortunately, it also means pollen... boooooo. (imagine Snoopy in a Charlie Brown movie with his dog lips pursed... "booooooooo....." )

Busy Bee Suz said...

Love those 'not meandering' photos.
Our spring is so short, I sometimes miss it.
It means to us:
not running the a/c 24/7.
Opening up the doors and windows.
Sitting outside and not sweating!!
And sadly, it is over.

Michelle said...

Oh, it has to be how green everything is and all the spring blooms.

Love the fun shots. You guys have the best neighborhood!

Lily Hydrangea said...

I love your banner! great portraits and subjects.
Happy Spring.

Grandma J said...

I love how you make everything so interesting and wonderful. Now I have to go take a hot shower and see if I can shrink my pores.

I have no idea what I just said, so I will leave it at that.

Smooches, Chica!

April said...

Such fun pictures! What do I love about springtime? Seeing my flowers bloom and being able to sit outside in the warm sunshine and enjoy the birds singing their happy tunes! :)

My favorite part about Spring is the blooms and no mosquitoes - yet. ;)

Granny Smith said...

Love the lively leaping! My wisteria, which covers a good part of our roof, is in full fragrant bloom.

Enjoy your spring days! But then you enjoy almost everything,I think.

Jay at The Depp Effect said...

I wish I had the energy to suffer spring fever! I am most definitely in meandering mode! LOL!

I'd love you to visit my blog, but it's down at the moment because the server was hacked. Should be back tomorrow. Fingers crossed!

JamericanSpice said...

We are grabbing our Spring because summer awaits anxiously to steal it into miserably heat and humidity!

Love your post :)

Sheila @ A Postcard a Day said...

No, it doesn't look like there's much meandering being done! Great fun and great shots!

Thanks for your visit to mine. :)

Unknown Mami said...

I love the way Spring makes me feel, more alive!

Muthering Heights said...

Wow, spring looks like a TON of fun at your house!!!

What I love about it right now is showing my little ones the new life around them...they are SO enthralled to see flowers growing, and leaves opening on trees! It's just the sweetest thing!

Hilary said...

There sure is a spring to the kidlet's step in the first photo.

Jama said...

Anita Johnson said...

What do I love about spring? Everything, it's the end of winter! Yipeeeeee!

Dianne said...

I love the sweet little blooms budding
and children playing

Jenny said...

Great post.. I love the weather and the colors of spring. It is very short lived where I live so we have to enjoy everyday before it gets really hot.

Maggie May said...

The gentle sunshine and the Spring bulbs and the promise of new life!
Great photos.

Nuts in May

Daniele said...

I love EVERYTHING about spring. Maybe because I'm a spring baby? ;) Spring just invigorates my soul.
Beautiful photos!

Aimee said...

Wow, what great pictures! We are loving the nice spring weather. We had a very cold winter for Texas and we know the summer will be hot so spring is very beloved around here!

Traci said...

They certainly look like they are enjoying the Spring.

For me, I live in Texas so I love Spring because the weather is ideal. Highs in the mid-70s with a breeze. Unfortunately, it is over much too soon and the weather will be in the 90s before I know it.

Amanda said...

I love watching everything come back to life :) to me that is the most amazing part of spring!

Mighty M said...

Love the action shots!

I love sitting outside on our back deck and any reason that provides weather nice enough to get outside!

:)

Crystal said...

Thanks for visiting my blog! It was an honor to hear from you. What I love about spring: being able to wash my car again, seeing the bulbs poke up through the dirt, running in shorts and short-sleeves instead of 4 layers each on long runs, all the spring road races in every community and summer planning!

thedulls said...

Spring is awesome, thats all there is to it! What great pics you have of the spring you are already enjoying!

Keri said...

Again, awesome pics! LOVE Kaishon's hair! Now let me think....spring.... I look forward to new life budding everywhere, warmth, and sunshine. Ooooh yeah.

girlytwins said...

I love our weather in the spring. We get really hot in the summer so spring is just perfect!!

I love your photos.

patty said...

i almost used this exact mark twain quote!! love the action shots, and i sware, i thought you were speaking of childhood, not spring break ... :)

Los said...

I love the color coming back ... it's like an awakening ... I can't get enough about it (except for the allergies and the pollen all over my car!).

Mom Taxi Julie said...

You always have the best pictures!! What kind of camera do you use?

My favorite thing about spring is the flowers! And being able to be outside without it being TOO hot yet.

Maria Berg said...

Yes spring is not for ever. The boy in the air and the drink - good. MB
