    For my family spring marks the time of eating dinner on the screen porch and much more grilling. I love spring!

    I can't wait to start scheduling our playgroup playdates for the park instead of my house, I'm sick of having to host them indoors and clean up after other people's kids.

    I knew spring had sprung when my daffodils bloomed! We have been enjoying the break in the weather for a few weeks here in SoCal. Once Little League starts, it's on. Being outdoors with the family is what we love the most.

    I enjoy taking my 2 cats outside. My younger cat likes to walk on his leash and I enjoy the reactions of others when they see he is a cat.

    I love just begin outside walking smelling the smells of spring listening to the song birds gardening and seeing all around the new growth of flowers plants and hearing the laughter of the children and gettting a whole new apprecation of God's green earth!

    I love to be outdoors! I get very excited about planting a garden and getting my flowers planted. My husband and I enjoy drinking our first cup of coffee for the day on the porch. I love to hear the little peepers (frogs) croak. Spring smells wonderful!

    I love the springtime but in Texas it ends way too quickly! I love to have all the windows open and the breeze blowing through. The house can air itself out after being closed up all winter.

    I live in Michigan and just love it when it the sun comes out and it starts to really warm up a bit in the spring. Everything is so much fresher and you just are so ready to get outside after all the cold weather. I just cannot wait for the warmer weather so we do not have to bundle all up and still freeze!
