Just some ramblings

I found these on my camera & think they were from one day last week when we went to the bike path
It is what I refer to as "ugly season"....everything is blah!  It has been so cold there's no sign of buds or flowers anywhere.  Spring is very late!  It finally warmed up some last week.....I am using the term "warmed up" very loosely....& the golf course opened Friday.  It was cold & rainy first thing but those crazy golfers (including Popster) didn't care & we were extremely busy most of the day.  It got a little nicer saturday but very windy again & yesterday started cold but ended up being sunny & reached 70 degrees....finally a nice day!
I think that shot looks better in black & white
I got a little creative with the rest of the pics.

Easter & lots of music

 Everyone came for brunch on Easter morning
 LiLi read her note from the easter bunny & started looking for eggs without even taking her coat off.  It was freezing cold which so they were hidden inside the house.

Of course she was anxious to go play the piano so Popster gave her some new songs.  She had written a note to the easter bunny & in it said that if he was santa she would have asked for a keyboard.   That came up in a conversation between Mark & Scott & the next thing we know Scott had disappeared.
 When he came back he told LiLi that when he drove down the street he saw the easter bunny put something in her dad's truck & run off into the woods.  When she went to check it out she could hear music.
 Look at that face!
 The wonder of kids believing in magic.....I love it!

 When I sent a pic of her with it to Josh & Jessie they both replied saying it looked suspiciously like one they had when they were both learning piano!

 I hope that she always has a passion for music so she can carrying on the family tradition of always having a jam session no matter what holiday or family get together it is!

Shenantaha & wildlife

 Saturday we decided to take a walk at Shenantaha Park just for something different....every place around here still has snow & ice or muddy, muddy trails because the ground is still frozen.
 This is Ballston Lake which is overflowing as the snow melts

 Here's a good view of how the water is sitting on top of the grass because it has no place to go!

 The sky was an amazing shade of blue
 One of the streams carrying snow melt
 Skinny Molly playing in the snow

 Then on our way out of the park we saw this coming at us down the hill.
 It's a coyote & he decided to go the other way (phew)
 This pair apparently confused this puddle with a pond?

Round Lake

These are from a week ago when we decided to try the bike path in Round Lake
The path was icy so we ended up walking around the village instead

 Look buds. Maybe spring is coming?

How to lose 20lbs in a few hours

 Molly got her "Spring Do" last week
This is a before pic
 She got really shaggy this winter & we're always amazed at how skinny she looks when she gets home
Especially this time as she is on a 28 day course of antibiotics for anaplasmosis   (from a tick bite) It is really affecting her appetite & she won't eat.  We can't wait for it to be done with.

Can you do this?

I have been promising LiLi I would go to her gymnastics class & finally made it this week.
She has moved up two levels & is with girls much older than her
She has to catch up to some of the things they are doing but she has that determination to succeed no matter what!
She does everything with that big smile....always so happy.

Even here as she's saying "I can't do this" she still smiles

This shows how small she is compared to most of the girls
