It finally feels like spring here! Hurray!!!
The kids went coat-less outside after school today and now, hubby and I are enjoying the Toronto Blue Jays game on the TV with the windows open.
Spring has sprung!!
Not to be outdone with nature's blossoms, my daughter Afton and I worked together on making a few fabric flowers to wear pinned to our outfits in the next few weeks.
We LOVE them and have worn them out on several occasions with many a compliment ensuing!!

My husband, Kevin, is currently working on getting his Masters in Education. He spends countless hours reading, researching and writing, on top of time spent teaching school and caring for our family.
In order to give him some quiet "work" time, I try to take all three kids out on the weekends --- and everyone wins! Kevin gets his work done, and the rest of the family gets an adventure out and about!!
This past weekend we headed for a local nursery in search of spring --- flowers, ponds and wildlife!
|Afton REALLY liked these planters, complete with their own birds!|
|She is a big fan of pink (as if you couldn't tell) and wanted one of these for our front door.|
|Camden disagreed. He prefers the yellow!|
|In the pond section of the nursery, Camden was gleeful to find a floating crocodile amongst the Koi.|
|Bryn and Camden were both disappointed that there were no fish outside in the ponds yet. Sorry boys - still too cold!!|
|Now let's be honest- the boys' FAVOURITE part of the nursery visit was this guy - a Frilled Lizard who seemed to be quite interested in the boys, too!|
|These are called English Daisies. They come in 3 shades of pink. I think I NEED some!!|
|And who doesn't love an orchid??|
|Pansies by the table-full!|
shape and shade!!
I'm looking forward to a weekend away. I am taking the train to visit my sister in Ottawa for a few days. Kid-free and obligation-free. I couldn't ask for more!
Thanks for visiting!
