Woke up to this today. I won't lie, it was depressing. So ready for April rain showers and May flowers.

Play Ball!

Danielle had her first scrimmage yesterday for travel ball. Actually, they had 2 scrimmages. Her team has been practicing inside all winter, and honestly, it's gotten a little boring. I'm sure she's glad to be outside on a real field again. We are still over a month away from starting actual games. (She is also playing rec ball this summer, and those games will start a little sooner, although that team hasn't had any practices yet.) They are still waiting for their real uniforms, but she got her new bag yesterday. It's almost as big as she is, although I can tell she's grown since last season! They won both their scrimmages.

More Backyard Wildlife

Our neighbor found this in her yard this afternoon.

We went out together and poked it...and took pictures of it...and encouraged him to visit other neighbors instead. It might be a garter snake, but I'm leaning towards a brown snake. Since brown snakes don't bite and just eat bugs and grubs and such, I'm choosing to believe that's what it is.

I do prefer the bunnies.

Bunnies and Sunshine

We found these cute little babies in our backyard this afternoon. They were hiding between some logs and the electric box. They were gone when we looked for them later. Hopefully they are somewhere safe, away from curious dog noses!

The sun was glorious today. Too bad the neighbor's yappy dog wouldn't stop yapping in the 30 minutes I had to sit out back and bask in it. Clara enjoyed the sunshine with me. She didn't seem to mind the yapping.

Totally unrelated, but noteworthy: Tyler had a follow up doctor's appointment today. He has grown 1 1/4" in 1 month! Good thing it's about time to switch to shorts! His pants are all going to look that short anyway!
