Springtime is Here!

Yay! Spring is here!

Tell me what Spring means to you!

Spring means to me:
Taking the kids to see the baby animals.
Every year at Hancock Shaker Village they have the Baby Animal Exhibit. I've taken my kids for the past 2 years & they love it. They get to get right in with the animals & pet them. There is many other things to do there as well. If you click on the link it brings you to their website.

My oldest 3 w/my sister & her 2 kids. You get to dress in the clothes the shakers wore back in the day. The kids actually loved dressing up!

Spring means Easter time! Yeah, I know, I go a little overboard! Oh well...

Spring means beautiful flowers.....

Spring means the girls annual dance recital!

Spring means Memorial Day Weekend spent at the campground where my mom has a seasonal campsite.

Spring means Lauren's birthday is coming up. I can't believe she'll be 14 this year!

Spring means fun times @ the playground!
And spring means the start of being able to go to the lake. Last year I was able to start taking them in May because it was so warm.

And most of all Spring means we are 1 step closer to Summer!

Linking up to Debbiedoo's Newbie Party!



  1. Allison, this is a great post. I love seeing the pictures of your family. Y'all are very busy in the spring! We are, too! March is actually one of our busiest months.

  2. Hi Allison, I'm really happy it's spring as well. I too go overboard on the Easter baskets - kids are only little for a short time. I just noticed your daughter's Hollister bag...my own 14 year old can't get enough of that store!

  3. Yay for spring! Spring means to me, yard work, beautiful flowers, long family walks in the evenings!
