…and no one is happier than Charlie!

The boys invited their friend and neighbor Dominick to join them in the water today. These kids play great together and have loads of fun playing baseball, hockey, Star Wars, video games, etc. so on…

Heading home to Florida for Spring Break with the family. It started snowing before I left Virginia. By the time I reached the North Carolina state line, visibility was greatly diminished and progress had slowed to a crawl. So much so, that it took me almost 5 hours to get through the state! My truck was covered in snow and ice when I got to South Carolina, but by the time I crossed the Georgia line, it was clean!

What a whacky ride!

After a painfully long, drawn-out Winter (which seemed to stretch into May), it’s finally looking and feeling like Spring. The days since we’ve been home have been in the 70s and 80s, the grass is growing (and so are the weeds), and the flowers are blooming…

In fact, they seem pretty inviting to this little bumble bee:

It’s been raining incessantly for what seems like weeks. This afternoon, the skies cleared and a rainbow appeared above the trees in the backyard. Maybe…just maybe…this is an indication that the discouraging downfalls are coming to an end…


Otherwise, I’m gonna have to start collecting animals and constructing an ark…

It’s nice to venture outside again as the cold, windy, wetness of the past couple of months gives way to increasing warmth and sunshine. Unfortunately, the ground is still pretty damp due to the recent rainfall (not to mention the melting snow), so Cindy takes the boys for a walk around the block. Naturally, when one goes for a walk, it’s good and proper to push a lawnmower.

All goes well until Alex decides to backtrack…

This Way and That

Caring for twins is sometimes like herding cats.

Okay, so I’m not complaining about the snow anymore!

I’ll take snow any day over ice and freezing rain!! This morning the driveway was pretty much a sheet of ice:

Ice Storm Ice Storm

and my truck was literally encased in it:

Ice Storm Ice Storm

Fortunately, the world famous groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, did NOT see his shadow this morning, which means we’re going to have an early Spring!

And statistically speaking, Phil has been right about 50% of the time, so you couldn’t do any better if you flipped a coin! 😉
