Maybe the birds?
I spent an hour yesterday cleaning the gardens, unearthing the first signs of life. Our columbines are popping up, as well as some tulips. The buds on our red maple are beginning to push out. It's a relief to see.
I'm pretty sure Evie spent the entire hour outside running. And don't be fooled by the pictures of Evie wearing her winter hat and fleece jacket. Within ten minutes she had shed both and was running in short sleeves.
Later in the afternoon, Jon and I walked with Evie to a nearby playground to let her use up more energy. With all of that time spent outside, we had one super happy kid.
