The spring time change is always welcome as it brings with it longer daylight and warming temps. We have started some outside spring cleanup. We have also started to see the first signs of the grass starting to turn green, always a welcome sight. We are looking forward to being able to take walks on our trail again, though this too will require some spring cleanup.
Though a cool day, Bret and a friend of ours tackled some of the trail cleanup this past weekend. Along with that are a couple larger trees that came down in a recent wind storm. They fell in the woods, but since we use the trail, they are going to clean these up for safety. The wood too will come in handy for bonfires to come through the year and will not go to waste.
We spent the last couple weekends visiting with family. First we took a road trip up North to visit my Mom. We will see her again in just a few weeks, as well as my sister and her family when we get together for Easter as well as to celebrate a couple of birthdays. My sister birthday falls two days before Easter this year and my nephews two days after.
The following weekend we had Bret’s nephew and wife visit us for the weekend. We relaxed, caught up, enjoyed some gourmet meals together we prepared and spent quality time playing with the girls. This was their first time meeting Betty, who won them over in no time, how could she not. We also attended an Supercross race one evening, always an exciting, entertaining event to attend in person as opposed to watching on TV.
We have plans of them visiting us again Memorial Day weekend, though possibly for several days this time. We will be attending the Indy 500. We also plan a cookout while they are here visiting along with some friends of ours. Time and weather permitting, we hope to take a canoe trip nearby and/or hike at the local State Park with numerous trails to choose from of various intentisty levels.
