Spring at last!

Spring has finally made its way to Minnesota and we’ve been enjoying every minute of it.  The windows are open, the birds are chirping and the tulips are about to make an appearance.  I don’t think I have ever enjoyed the first days of spring quite so much as I have this year.

Grant had to work on Saturday so in between naps Will and I ran errands and went on a walk to the park.  I discovered that it takes a lot less time to get out the door when I don’t have to bundle up myself and a baby (who always seemed to poop right after we put the snowsuit on).

On Sunday morning we went for a our first family bike ride with Will in the trailer.  We made another stop at the park and Will went down the slide for the first time (in our laps of course)

The first batch of cold brew iced coffee has been made.  I used the Pioneer Woman recipe and it turned out…. okay.  The recipe is fine and tastes quite good, but is not the “coffee concentrate” I was going for.   This weekend a friend from Wheaton sent me the recipe I used to use from I Have a Bean (that was lost in the move) as well as another method to try.  It is the best iced coffee I have ever had and I’ll be sure to share that when it’s time to make the next batch.

Putting the miles on the stroller.

Baby legs in the sunshine.  He just LOVES the sun and the fresh air between his toes.  The view of his feet as we walk is precious as he stretches his legs and spreads his toes, all while chattering away.  Maybe Will has inherited my dislike of socks and my love of the sunshine.  Poor kid has also inherited my need for sunscreen and shade though.
I hope the warm weather has found you too.  What are you doing to enjoy the spring?
