Springtime at Nana's

This is truly one of my favorite times of the year (other than fall). The weather is just so perfect, and everything is blooming and green and lovely. I'm trying to enjoy being outside with the girls as much as I can before it starts to get hot, because once it does I'm known to retreat to the AC and not emerge again until fall. I hate hate hate being hot and sweaty!

Last week the girls and I took a trip to Nana's to enjoy a lovely spring day in her backyard.
My mom has the greenest thumb of anyone I know, her landscaping looks glorious right now. I wish I had her gardening skills.

My parents moan and groan about all the little mushrooms growing in their yard, but I was running around plucking as many as I could and feeling very Dainty Squid-like.

Some of the cats decided to come join us in the backyard.

My parent's koi pond... it's so fun to throw the fish food in and watch them go crazy!

Poppy even blew up Layla's bouncy house and she wore herself out bouncing for hours!

There's not many feelings better than grass on bare feet in the spring.


  1. Lovely blog! Your nana's garden looks beautiful! I recognize the cute little strawberry flower there (I'm growing some myself). Also love the koi pond! Totally awesome :D
