In Search of Spring...

We started our morning off at Daryl's Bakery in Glenside and ate egg sandwiches outside. Our little picnic seemed to make everyone who walked by us smile. One happy woman passed by and said - "Now there is a sure sign of Spring!" and viola that exclamation  became my inspiration for today's post. 
After breakfast we headed off to Alverthorpe Park.

Geir put new air in the tires and we were ready!

 
We brought along our bread baskets to feed the birds. 


And set off off into the woods looking for signs of Spring. 


In search of green we found this lovely moss.

We discovered that the cubs have left their den. 
(Ok not really - but it is fun to believe.)

 
Proof that there really is an Easter Bunny and we are pretty sure it wasn't 
A must read!

 
My nap-time indulgence - sprucing up our nature table. 


Vivian playing in the bright sunshine - at 5 in the afternoon!

Ella spinning on the bar - enjoying her prowess.


A wet boogie hand...
touches disgusted Big Sister - tears flow, feelings hurt. 
Vivy feeling misunderstood - Ella wondering why SHE has to apologize.
Kiss, make up and everybody is happy again
-until they learn that it is time to go home.

A perfect ending to our search for Spring - it felt so good even with tired and cranky kids. If you are wondering why I am not at the Goddess retreat -  life led me in a different direction. I am not complaining - life happens the way it was meant to be and I was meant to enjoy my family today. 

Hope you are enjoying your loved ones.
