"Adventures, I used to call them. I used to think that they were things the wonderful folk of the stories went out and looked for, because they wanted them, because they were exciting and life was a bit dull...But that's not the way of it with the tales that really mattered, or the ones that stay in the mind. Folk seem to have just landed in them, usually...I expect they had a lot of chances, like us, of turning back, only they didn't. And if they had, we shouldn't know, because they'd have been forgotten."

Early Spring

These last few weeks have been so warm, in the upper 60's, even the mid 70's! In March! And April! Crazy right. Well one of the downfalls of an early Spring in Minnesota.... mom is NOT prepared! Our sprinkler pooped out, so what is just as good? Two little boys and a hose!

Then, in true boy fashion, they decided to wash their toys.

Which was taken very seriously (notice the tongue). :)

Today we are getting some much needed rain. Hopefully the warm weather will continue through the summer, as the boys are already asking to set up the pool!
