Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Things I am looking forward to doing now that the weather is finally breaking:
  1. Going for walks outside! One of my favorite things to do first thing in the morning is get out and walk while the sun is still low. You can hear all the birds chirping and it is just a great way to start the day.
  2. Getting the kids out on bike rides.
  3. Hitting the parks! Natalie has been begging to go to the play park and so far they have still been too muddy.
  4. Going to the ZOO. We have two zoo's each about an hour away and we love to spend lots of time there.
  5. T-ball games! This year Ethan and Elena will both be playing. I am hoping on the same team. This should be fun to watch.
  6. Baseball. Jason started practice this week, so That is always fun, he loooves Baseball.
  7. On the subject of Baseball. Opening Day was Monday! Whoo-Hoo! GO TRIBE!! We try to get to a few baseball games each year.
  8. Okay this is further into spring, really summer but we just got our renewal papers to Valley Beach and I wasn't going to get another pass this year, but I think we just may.
  9. Cedar Point! We had so much fun last year we are definitely gonna plan a trip or two this year.
  10. Park Play dates. I love to get out and have picnics with our friends.
  11. Planting flowers - I love to freshen up the landscaping with new growth and color. This year we need a landscaping update.
  12. Planting a small garden. Ethan is excited about helping me pick some vegetables to grow.
  13. Camping! This also is really getting into summer, but we have at least two camping trips we are planning and I cannot wait!!

That is my list of things I am getting ready for. How about you?

It's been raining here for a week and a half and I haven't been able to walk either. My grandson's first ball game was Tuesday but I had class so I missed it. He has another one Friday night and I'm going to be there. So glad baseball season has started! Great list! Happy TT

I just can't wait for the weather to warm up. It's snowed here three times in the last week and they are forecasting another cold front for early next week. I'm ready for Spring!!

Happy TT!

Yay! Bring on the summer! We've still got snow on the ground, but I'm hopeful anyway. :) This post was so invigorating! Happy TT!

Oh, and I LOVE that picture in your header with all the feet. The little baby just tops it off.

I love the list. We've been getting spring fever too. I think we are going to try to grow some veggies also this year. This is the first year I don't have a little baby to care for.

Melissa said...

Great list. We are going to the zoo tomorrow! Love it!

KC said...

Great list.. I'm looking forward to alot of the things on that list also.. Your'll have to call me when you head to the park.. Little Man is in great need of getting outside and running around. :)

Laura said...

Our Little League baseball season starts on Saturday...wish it would warm up some before then so we can ENJOY being outside for forever! Spring is a GREAT time of year!!

Happy T-13!

I could see wanting to do some of those things too, but I'm on a week of stay at home quarantine with the flu and today the Atlanta pollen count is 1087. Anyting over 171 is "extremely high."

In good news though, above my TT is a story of victory over Satan.

So funny to hear someone talking about things around here!!


And we love camping and can't wait to plan some trips this year.

My kids had so much fun at Cedar Point too, I am sure we will be going again.

I cannot wait for the warmth of Summer!!
