Gary's been working super long hours lately (especially this week as he's preaching on Sunday), so we went into Boulder today to meet him for a picnic lunch. We walked along Boulder Creek and found a picnic table in a semi-sunny spot (we wanted full sun!). It was so wonderful! We munched on our PB&J and watched the ducks float by, people lounging on rocks near the creek, people jogging by with their dogs trying to keep up... all in the warm sun. I'm so thankful spring is here at last. I love seeing the tiny buds of new life on the trees (Emma loves the PINK trees, of course!) and how everything smells fresh and sweet. There is still a little chill in the air to remind us that there are probably a few more very cold days to come before winter is definitely behind us, but it's more bearable than snow being on the ground for 63 days straight, that's for sure!
We went down to Abby's place to celebrate her birthday this week and I couldn't resist taking this picture of my tuckered-out girls when we got home. They were zonked! I promise I did not "pose" them. :)
