The photos are from last year on this day. Today we had a cold rain which refilled the puddles that had just disappeared. I don't believe there is a lake in my backyard, but to be honest, I never really checked.
It was a busy day with another houseful of children and tomorrow promises more of the same. Somewhere in the middle of it all, I will be making a valiant attempt to put together some kid of birthday party/lunch for My Darling. Should be quite the feat, but I do believe Bethany is coming over to lend a hand (and bring another small child). Funny to think how I did this all by myself when I had my own houseful of children.
I'm still looking for warm weather but purposing not to dwell on the fact that it hasn't shown up yet. We'll know spring has truly arrived when the grass turns green. Guess we need a little more rain and sunshine for that to happen.
