Green, yay!

After what felt like a very long winter (especially March!), it is so nice to have Ottawa turn green. And we now have a front lawn! And a tree! And tulips in our garden! It is such a treat… hard to believe that just over a month ago our yard was buried in a huge amount of snow.

Mara and I made it to the park yesterday afternoon and she got to play in the sand for the first time. She managed to get one or two small handfuls of sand in her mouth quickly, but not too much. I think she really liked it! And the swings are still a hit (either on her own in a baby swing or on my lap in a big swing).
