Spring is here and we are loving it. After months of cold, rainy weather, we are finally surrounded by trees with bright green leaves that make me smile.
The flowers are beginning to bloom and bringing beautiful colors with them.
We have found ourselves making up reasons to spend extra time outside. If it were up to my children, we would spend from sun-up to sun-down in the fresh air.
Afternoons in the park have proven to be a favorite.
We invested in Edy's Strawberry Fruit Bars. They are the perfect summer treat! 60 calories and only 13 grams of sugar.
But with these...
Notice the "green stuff" on C's shoe? Yep, pollen. We walked from the car to the park pavillion (about 20 feet) in the grass. On this particular day, the pollen count was 2,790. That is extremely high! Itchy eyes, runny noses, scratchy throats, and sneezes galore. BUT, we have only been under a handful of tornado watches this spring. I will take the pollen over tornados any day of the year!
I hope the weather is this beautiful where you are. And if you are really lucky...
...you will have some static to go with the sunshine!
