We have had two beautifully warm days with little wind so what's a Grandma to do when a little boy says "outside" but to head on out the door. I thought it was time to introduce this little one to the joys of dirt and I must say he loves it.

What a great little helper with pulling grass and weeds as we began the spring cleaning of cleaning out the flowerbeds. Don't you just love the grin on this lil' farmer's face as he got so tickled at how the grass came right up. Don't think I'll get him around the onions my Mom and Dad just planted or I might be planting them over again.

All work and no play just won't he had to try out the tricycle that I found at a thrift store. Just can't seem to reach the pedals just yet.

Oh how I wish my knees worked like that again. One of these days I need to get a picture of him and his Great~Grandpa Bob together as my dad still sets like this when he's fishing or just needing to take a rest.

Well the warm temperatures are gone once again and now the prediction is for a chance of snow for the next couple of days. Surely spring is just around the corner!

Happy Trails....Ginger

I just LOVE it when I find this sweet face on your blog!! It thrills me to see this wonder in your life; how God has blessed you and your family, there just aren't words to praise Him.
But the whole "knees not working" thing scares me a are far to young for that! (I say that because I'm not far behind you at all!!!!) Love and lots of thoughts, deb

He is such a cute little guy Ginger!

Oh how sweet is the dirt on his little hands picture and his sweet little face as well! What a great shot of him squating, it would be so cute to get that side by side picture of he and his GG-pa.

That first picture of the two of your hands reaching to eachother like that brought tears to my eyes. (Happy, nostalgic ones)That would be beautiful to frame....or hook!
