Actual green grass!
Can you feel it? The temperatures are getting warm, the air smells fresh, and green plants are peeking up through the brown! Spring is coming and it’s coming fast! After a seemingly endless winter, just as the cabin fever was about to be too much to bear, spring is arriving and bringing with it hope. Winter has always been one of my favorite times of the year. I love the cold weather, bright snow and crisp air. Even so, as I’ve gotten older, I’ve started seeing the value of a little bit of warmer weather. NOT hot weather, mind you, but warmer is not so bad. Especially this year, I’ve been antsy and wanting to do more warm weather activities, like biking, hiking, swimming, playing in the park, etc.
A really great friend of mine (you know who you are!) gave my hubby and me a pair of super sweet cruiser bikes, this winter. They are so nice with big, fat tires and cushy seats; the perfect kind of bike for a little wicker basket. With all the snow and wet, we haven’t had a chance to get out and give them a try. I’m so excited to hop on and head to Old Town for a cruise. The nice thing (bad thing?) about these bikes is that they are not meant to have a baby trailer hooked onto the back. Bummer! Well, it will be fun to have our date bikes…sorry kids!! We might even be able to ride the Tour de Fat this year.
Are you looking forward to the warmer weather? What activities are you looking forward to?
