Welcome Spring!

After snowstorms in March and rain, Saturday was one of the nicest days we have had in a long time.  We eagerly got outside and went for a walk.  Baby fell asleep in the jogger, wrapped in a blanket with the sun on him and the wind in his face… it made me jealous. 

The dog got to take a splash in the run off – which she was ecstatic about and promptly dove in face first to the cold, cold water.

And on our way back, I saw this feather wound around the branch of a bush on the side of the road.  I didnt know what it was until I posted it on Twitter and Jeff said it was a turkey feather.  A great sign because turkey season starts in two weeks!
