Spring Is In The Air

I don't know when Spring actually started (or starts?) but today seemed like the first day of 2008 that i could reasonably let the kids go and play in the yard for a bit before dark. The Magnolia tree is in bloom and Thea picked generously from it to have flowers for the whole family, even Tina and hank (the dogs).

They had a blast, and I think it really helped to get them to sleep, too. Not that they sacked in early or anything but Thea put herself to bed totally with no fuss and all i had to do was check on her after I got Liam to sleep (with very little fuss).

Kel had to work late tonight, and actually isn't even home yet as of this writing. She hates working late as much as I do, and I know she must be stressed. And she also hates missing out on kids time and family time. This post is for you Kel, as Thea would say, "The bestest Mommy in the World!"

We have the same kind of magnolia. I love it! If was a secure masculine man, I would roll around in the pretty pink blossoms.
