My Favorite Time of Year

I love spring in the NW because we live in such a beautiful place and when it's not raining I get to go outside and enjoy my surroundings. Here are a few photos of my recent outdoor activities.

A couple weeks back a bunch of us got together for a bbq at the Salsigs and they had a slip n' slide set up in the backyard for us kids to play on. I LOVED it!

I got a little cold, so every once in awhile I'd wrap up in a towel with Dad to get warm.

I also went to the zoo with Kate and had a great time. We caught the bird show and even though we have had a zoo membership this past year and thus have gone lots, I never seem to catch the bird show. It was a lot of fun seeing those big birds up close!
Here is a photo of Kate and I waiting for the bird show to start.

Mom and Me hanging out by the elephants.

I think Nana has an old picture of Mom on this goat statue when she was about my age.

This week I went out to to visit my friend, Meadow. She lives right on the Sandy River and basically has a "beach" for a backyard. I couldn't wait to go play in the sand and have been asking for weeks to "go to the beach at Meadow's." We had a blast getting all dirty and wet.

We had fun throwing sand in this little pool of warmer water we found next to the river.

Then we decided we'd go in it and that was fun too!

After we got all cleaned up using her outdoor warm water faucet, we had lunch and played some more inside. It was fun playing peek-a-boo in a big box she had that we both fit in. What a fun day!

Most of all, I love riding my tricycle outside. I got a scooter for my birthday and I'm sure I'll enjoy riding it more and more as I get used to it, but for now my trike is the thing I enjoy most in life (that and trains).

Here I am on my scooter.

After about 5 minutes on my scooter the other day, I asked for my trike. :)
