TBT – Signs of Spring

Spring Has Sprung or Has It?

This year, we had snow falling on the first full day of spring.  Almost 300 schools, churches, and even the Air Force base were cancelled or delayed because of the snow.

Even though snow has fallen, we have had some signs of spring.  My one and only deciduous tree, the autumn glory maple, has red buds on the branches which means there should be leaves growing soon.

During the snow fall, I still heard the birds singing their spring songs.

A Look Back at a Past Spring

I went back in my Google photos to find photos of spring in my neighborhood.  I finally found photos from 2012 when the boys were 6 and 8 years old.

Some of the photos that were taken during the spring of 2012 are some of my favorite photos that I have ever taken.

I hope you enjoyed the walk down memory with this Throwback Thursday post.  I can’t wait to see more signs of spring than what we have been seeing so far.

Have a magical day!

ZooAmerica – Blog Post #5

After I allowed the Imaginative One to go off on his own, it was my turn to explore the park.  He would not be happy with his mom not wanting to ride all of the roller coasters.  I like roller coasters but some are too much for me and it was really hot.  (90s)

Back to Chocolate World – Blog Post #3

The next morning, we got up and ate breakfast in our room.  Even though they had coffee in the lobby area of the hotel, it was only okay to drink.

I opted to go to Chocolate World to get coffee from there before heading over to Hershey Park.

Wednesday Evening – Blog Post #1

Welcome to my newest travel series!

The Imaginative One’s 14th birthday was while he was at Boy Scout camp down in Kentucky.  I decided to take him for a road trip after the Boy Scout Camp to celebrate his 14th birthday.

He had wanted to go to Hershey Park for five or more years so that is where we decided to go on this road trip.

August 2007 . . . A blast from the past

1. Throwback Thursday: Choose a photo from August 10 years ago and write a poem or a blog post.

I went on a mission this week to find photos from August 2007.  I finally found them tonight!

10 years ago, the boys were 2 and 4 and as cute as can be.

The Imaginative One started preschool.

I moved school buildings once again.

Now to the photos I’ve chosen from August 2007.

This is the Wee One dressed as Goliath from the Playhouse Disney’s show Jo Jo’s Circus.

The Imaginative One was obsessed with the show.  I bought him this Halloween costume one year.  It was on sale so it was cheap.  Both boys wore it non stop for years.  Best money spent.

The boys were outside underneath our maple tree.  The Wee One was eating a yogurt and apple.  I love his eyes in this photo.

We went to Krispy Kreme for donuts and to watch the donuts being made.  I think they were excited to eat some delicious treats.

The Imaginative One no longer believes in smiling so it’s great to find a photo of him smiling.

This is the Wee One’s first day of preschool.  He was at the preschool for two years.  Now he is getting ready to go to 8th grade which is crazy.

That’s not how you play corn hole, the Wee One.

Playing in the park.  The Wee One has lost one of his sandals.  This is nothing new because he still loses shoes ALL the time.

The Imaginative One took gymnastics for a few years because of his lack of coordination.  This was taken on his last day of gymnastics.

Playing in the water.  So much fun!

He got to meet this giant frog while he was playing in the water.

Playing in the rain – One is in his diaper while the other put on his rain coat.  Such a difference in personalities.

The Imaginative One got to pose with this cool car.  The Newport Aquarium is located just outside of Cincinnati, Ohio.

The Wee One got a hair cut.  He was so mad about that.  Tears and a tantrum followed the decision to cut off his baby hair.

It looks as though he had just had some yogurt or cotton candy ice cream before the clippers were brought out.

These two are now going to be middle schoolers.  They say those are the most difficult years.  It has been so bad with the Imaginative One.  I hope it’s not that bad with the Wee One.

I hope you enjoyed walking down memory lane with me.

Have a magical day,
