so springy!

Thank you for a wonderful update in the shop! There's still lots of fun things there and I hope to keep finding spring treasures to update it frequently. Winter seems to have let go of it's icy embrace in these parts. At least for a few days. Yesterday we hit a record high of 64 degrees, over twenty degrees above normal. The buds were popping and I even found a crocus on the south side of the house. Amazing! Usually I post a similar picture quite a bit later.
It sure was fun to get out and enjoy this crazy warm weather. The ice is definitely retreating from the lake. The kids were back to the beach looking for treasures. We found a tree that some busy beavers had gnawed down. When we got home, we knew it was time to say good-bye to winter when the sidewalk came out! I love this happy little guy that Chloe drew.

We're supposed to get an icy, slushy mix later in the week, but we've definitely turned the corner and boy does it feel refreshing!!
