Spring, Sprang, Sprung!

The kids and I went on a spontaneous hike this afternoon along the trail near our house that runs along the river. We collected rocks for science experiments, threw sticks into the water, saw some Canada geese, startled a snake sunning itself on a stump (an eastern ribbon snake, we think, although it could well have been a garter snake), and were nearly deafened by the peeping of the spring peepers.

It feels, looks, and sounds like spring! (Although I know it’s quite possible that winter will make another appearance before all’s said and done. I’m not packing away my heavy jacket just yet, but I am enjoying the smell of the fresh air through the house and eating lunch with the kids on the enclosed porch.)
