I love spring. I think it has always been my favorite time of year. I grew up north of the Spokane area and when springtime started over there, the snow that had been on the ground all winter would start to melt away. Shortly after the snow was gone, little tulip and daffodil bulbs would start peeking through. It was always so exciting to walk around the yard and see what new things were growing.
I also love spring because that's when baby animals are born. We had a couple of outdoor cats and springtime at our house usually meant baby kittens. My sister and I could feel the baby kittens in the mommy's tummy and then later you could hear little meows coming from a bush. We would spend hours waiting to be able to see those little baby kitties. When we finally figured out where the momma cat hid them, we would play with them and then the momma cat would move her litter somewhere else and try to get away from us little girls again.
Now, we don't have cats so, I don't have baby kitties to look forward to (that's ok with me!) but, I still love walking around the yard and seeing what little plants are starting to peek out of the ground. This afternoon, Judah and I went and took a little walk around the yard. We took some pictures of the new buds and blooms and then I let him crawl around in the grass for a bit. We had so much fun getting some fresh air and sunshine.
