Yay! for Springtime!

We are sooo happy to be playing outside lately. I can't believe how much my little guy likes his sandbox this year. Every day he goes out and tells me, "Mommy, I makin' a HOLE!" as he's digging. It's getting to be pretty deep, and he likes to sit in it now. I love that he's having fun, but sandbox season also means my house is full of sand. He is covered in it when he comes inside.

His other favorite backyard activity is driving his cars around. He loves to fill them up with all of his toys, rocks, dirt, pinecones, sticks, etc.
In addition to the sandbox, he has also discovered how great the dirt in the garden is. It is fun to watch him play. He begs to go outside as soon as he wakes up in the morning and I have to fight him to get him to come inside at bedtime.
Also, this is a little random, but we have 2 young willow trees in our backyard that the ladybugs love! It's so cool to watch, so I snapped a picture of one of them.

I should have posted this months ago, but it happened so close to my father's passing that I just wasn't very excited about blogging. This is my husband's wonderful grandpa. He unexpectedly passed away on January 3, 2009. He had a caring personality, and he loved his family very much. We all miss him.

Also... we now have a headstone. Since it was so cold outside when my dad died, the headstone was placed just a few weeks ago. It's really pretty - this photo doesn't do it justice. (The splotchy areas are because it was wet from the rain.)

Anyway, I do intend to start posting much more often here. Now that it's warm outside, we've been spending lots of time in the yard - which means LOTS of pictures of my little guy. I seriously can't believe how much he loves the dirt. I will post some photos of him soon.
