April Showers Bring May Flowers

I try to get out for a walk at least once a day.  I find if I don't have fresh air I get headaches and don't sleep as well at night.  Plus I think it's good for kids to be outdoors.  Normally I walk along the creekside trail near our house but it was closed due to cougar activity in the area (!!!).  You know you're in Squamish when you carry bear spray or a hunting knife with you on a stroll around the neighbourhood!  Here are some pics I took of people's lovely spring gardens in my subdivision.

Not sure of this one, but I love it!

The best springtime flower of all!
Happy Friday everyone!

Spring is Sprung?

Phew, we just got back last night from a wonderful holiday to Saskatoon (and beyond!).  In typical prairie style it was sunny and +15 on Saturday, and then -5 and snowing on Sunday - ha ha!  Nova did amazing on her first flight(s) - and the West Jet staff was amazing, they even gave her a little "My First Flight" sticker.  So cute!
Havin' a time in her Exersaucer!
