In other happenings, but birth related as well, we have a cute family of squirrels residing beneath our storage shed. They are cute and little and more light gray than their brownish parents. Since we've moved in, I've noticed a squirrel who likes to pop his head up out of the bush outside our entryway. I used to notice him only around 3 or 4 pm, but now I see him all day long. I think that he's the dad, looking out from a higher plane to make sure that his little family is safe from danger. I even saw him training his son (another assumption) to do the same. It was darling.

If you live in the West, I'm sure your spring has spring a month or two early this year. We have had TWO days of 80 degree weather in April. April, people!!! The past two years we had a couple of days of 80 in May, and the strawberries were a month early. Will they be two months early this year? I need to stop having babies during strawberry season. It makes jam-making difficult. :)

We went to grandparent land for Easter, which was fun. HH's brother and his family were there for a day that we were there, so it was fun to be with all of HH's family. Goombaw's friend hosted the biggest egg hunt ever. There were some 450 eggs hidden; each kid got 40-50 eggs. It was wild.

Enjoy this picture of our tree, Blossomer, so named by Big Sis. It's pink blossoms were so fun to enjoy. We also have two lilac bushes, hooray!!! I brought some flowers into the house and it smelled so good. We are looking forward to trimming trees and bushes this fall or next spring so everything can look a little prettier and grow a bit better.
Welcome May! Your weather has been here a month already. I hope you don't give us too warm of weather.
