Happy Spring y'all

In honor of the vernal equinox, me and the kids sat our butts right down on the dirt and weeds under the elm tree and then Austin baptized me and himself with mud. Maya was all like... what. is. he. doing? Is he playing with... mud. Ewww. [Insert disgusted teenager facial expression here.]

Austin walked around barefoot until the soles of his feet were stained purple from wildflowers.

I tried to take a picture of some yellow wildflowers because the green buds/flower bases uncurl upwards in the shape of a nautilus shell, but my camera sucks.

Maya rode around on her bike, calling the dogs after her like a mama duck, or pan with his pipe.

PS Next time you see those purple soles on Austin, see if you can snap a photo. I'd love to see it!
