A Gift for Angel From The Weather Gods

Back to the Bikes!

Monday was Angel’s first day back In Action, and the weather was better than it had been in 2 weeks. Still chilly, but plenty of sunshine. When we got her home from school, she quite literally threw her backpack in the door and scrambled for her bike.


Switch bikes!

They both need to size-up…their knees are hitting the handlebars.

Not that it matters to them, of course…

Running Boy

After bikes, there was time for Running. Only a few spots in the yard with standing water on Monday…it’ll be a different story by Friday, after today’s forecast 3 inches of rain…

Look at the trees behind Niko, and you’ll see how late our spring is this year – the leaves have just begun to unfurl.

There were dandelions to smell…

I Wish...

To blow…


To sit quietly in…


Or – best of all – to share with your Best Friend.

  1. Thank goodness she’s fit and allowed to be active again! Maybe you can be thankful the weather wasn’t so warm before, or it would have been even harder on her. Hope your spring gets a move on now Marie.

  2. May is here … hope you really start warming up soon. Good to see the two youngsters growing up best friends. Laura

  3. It will be interesting to see how these two are when they are adult cousins.. You are kindling and building a very special relationship. One that will last their whole lives. Life will take its loops and changes but this kind of bond will remain. They are very lucky children to have a grandmother young and active enough to keep them both together. Wonderful. Especially loved the shot of them sitting together. Have you changed your format? Everything looks crisper.. and more accessible.. c

    • He’s the closest thing she’ll ever have to a sibling…I hope that they’ll always love each other the way they do right now.
      And yes, I changed my theme – after three years, it was time for a change. I think it looks good, too. Thanks! πŸ™‚

      • They will go through their stages i am sure but that incredible familial bond is being set in stone as you work with them.. what a glorious legacy.. c

  4. This is such a fun post, and your photos are wonderful. Looks like the two of them are having a great time. I hope you didn’t get too much rain. We had some flooding in the woods due to super high tides, and got about 2 inches of rain total. Now it’s just plain hot and humid. Summer is early.

    • Wait – it’s actually WARM down there? Send us some! πŸ˜‰
      We got about 2 inches yesterday – enough for some bad street flooding in places. Looks like it’s going to be dry for a few days now – we hope!

  5. Gorgeous photos to depict a definite spring feeling – that grass IS green! Great that the kids have so much safe and quiet room for their biking . . . . oh, but do hope Angel has not forgotten her ‘time off’ and will take some care πŸ™‚ !

    • Our very long driveway is great for bikes…if I need to, I can park the car at the end to block anyone that might be pulling in, and the kids can ride the whole thing…As for her Being Careful…well, she’s four. She’s about as careful as the dogs are. πŸ˜‰

  6. Am loving the new look Marie, looks fantastic. The photos look fantastic too, the kids look like they are really enjoying spring and being able to get outside.

  7. A wonderful series of shots, Marie. Great that the weather cooperated, giving Angel a chance to go bike riding as soon as she had the OK. Every time you show us a recent photo of Niko, he looks less a toddler and more a little boy. Gosh they grow up fast
    You’ve “re-decorated”. It’s looks great!

    • Thanks, John…He’s growing up fast, for sure. Sometimes I want to ‘put a brick on his head’, as my Dad used to say… πŸ™‚
      Glad you like the new theme – it’s easier on the eyes, I think…

  8. The beauty of that blossoming header on your new front page is surpassed only by the wonderful beauty of those two dolls enhancing the landscape with their appreciative pleasure! Can’t believe how quickly they’re both growing. πŸ˜€

  9. Look at those blooms lining the driveway! I wonder if the kids will tell their grandchildren about the acres of daffodils at Grandma’s house?
