Baseball. Two boys=Six practices per week!


Cherry Blossoms abound.  

Doors with screens.

"Let us in!"


Flip flops.

Holes dug by bad little Dachsies!

Insects. The bloodsuckers are back already.

  Jumping on the trampoline. (I had to sneak this shot from the deck but Devin was too quick for me, hence the giant ball in front of his face.)

Knockout Roses budding.

Longer Days.

My attempt at a shot of the rising moon...didn't quite capture it.

My ..ahem.. 40th Birthday in April.

 North Carolina Wiener Roast in May.  Few things excite me this much! It's a little piece of Dachsie dog heaven.

2010 wiener dog race..We lost but we'll get 'em this year!
 Open sunroof on the Saturn.

2007...They look so small!

Pollen. (Achoo!)

  Quote I love: "It's spring fever.  That is what the name of it is.  And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!"   ~Mark Twain

 Road trip for Spring Break in April. Where the road will lead us, only God knows.

  Sniffing for squirrels.

Trees blooming.

Uplifting words. "The day the Lord created hope was probably the same day he created Spring."   ~Bern Williams
