Signs of spring

We went on a afternoon "hike." Big Fat baby got to ride in the bjorn while the older kids harassed the ducks. 

During last week's springtime snow storm (where we got 4 inches of snow and three days of rain) the birds built this nest. They do this every spring, the husband usually knocks it down but I have convinced him to let it stay this year to see if we get baby birds. 

Usually by now this tree is covered in white flowers but a late freeze hurt its new leaves and it only has a couple of flowers.

I love that bird nest. Both E's would be excited about that one.

My bulbs are mad, not blooming like previous years. Sigh. I want a blooming tree instead of these darn cottonwoods, oh and I'll take a cute nesting bird as well.
