This past Sunday evening we celebrated the first day of spring and had a toast to the start of "cookout season" on our patio with Ben and Katherine. Last summer the four of us (well, five us if you count McGruff) cooked out several times a week and they were some of the most fun nights Mr. D and I had. It's always nice when you can relax on the patio, spend time with friends and share a good meal - all at the same time. :)
Jerk chicken & veggies.
Mr. D manning the grill & conducting business all at the same time.
Another way I know spring is finally on it's way? The daffodil's in our back yard are blooming! I love pretty spring and summer flowers and was delighted to see these the other day.
McGruff has also been enjoying the rising temperature and has wanted to spend more time outside lately. He's so cute in the back yard. He loves to run and play and we love to watch him have so much fun.
(ignore the giant patch of dead grass...fixing this is on our ever growing to do list.)
Have y'all been enjoying any warmer temperatures where you are? I am loving the weather change and looking forward to even warmer days spent by the pool, evening bicycle rides to Orange Leaf and more cookouts with friends and family!
Get excited! It's nearly the weekend!
