Spring Is Here!

 ...And that means I finally get to play outside!! I started with a field trip downtown to see the cherry blossoms. It was lovely just to be in the sun, walking around and enjoying nature.
 Krista and I also took advantage of a beautiful day and went down to a pier at Piney Point, MD. It was a great day to sit, eat, and soak up the sun!
 Great company, the sound of water laping against the sand, and fresh lemonade. Nothing better!
 This last Sunday I went downtown again with Rosie to see the last days of the cherry blossoms. Truth be told, the tulips caught my attention a little more. They are gorgeous!!
 So many colors and so many shapes! I love nature and so thankful that God put beauty into everything :)
 I especially loved these. Aren't they amazing??!
 Loved being able to spend time with Rosie :)
I also had a free day mid-week, and so I took myself down to Mt Vernon, George Washington's home along the Potomac in VA. I must admit, for the first time since I've lived here, I decided I didn't want to leave. It was breathtaking! What an amazing view! The camera doesn't do it justice.
The grounds are quite extensive with farmland, gardens, and unspoiled nature throughout the 80 acres. Such an amazing place. So glad I was able to visit!
