Have you had a long winter?  Need a little bit of summer lovin'?

 

Make it happen.

 

Every Sunday we have a meal at my in-laws' house as an extended family, but this week Nana and Papa had a great idea to beat the winter doldrums and put a little spring in our step.

 

 

Welcome to our winter cookout, where the tricycle and tee ball stand were waiting for us in the driveway, begging us not to scurry inside as usual but to stay out and play a while.  An excellent excuse to put on some shorts and flip flops, eat hot dogs and hamburgers off the grill while listening to Jimmy Buffett.  A good day and welcome, hopeful change.  Hoping spring will be here soon!

 

 

A good excuse to try out our homemade binoculars and do some birdwatching.  Welcome back, wildlife!  Don't mind the snow; it's on its way out!

 

 

Just because the winter has seemed endless (and yes, there is more on the horizon for tomorrow) doesn't mean you can't create a reason to celebrate and get together.  Throw the last of your firewood in the the fireplace, crank up the heater, whatever you have to do to add a little sunshine to your day and celebrate spring.  It's coming.  I promise, it will be here soon.
