Yesterday finally felt like spring outdoors. It was warm enough to get out the grill and play at the park, so we did all that. There are still a few stubborn piles of snow refusing to melt, so it's that odd time of year when kids can play outside wearing shorts and still have a snowball fight. Alas, it's still too early to plant a garden, and cold, wet weather will return later this week. A little while ago I decided I couldn't take it anymore and decided to bring spring indoors, so the kids and I filled an old dish tub with dirt and planted a whole bunch of peas. Now we have a little forest of pea shoots to snack on. It gives me hope!
