New name, & FINALLY a real spring day!

I decided since I haven't been called "mommy" in about 8 years, that my blog can no longer be called "Mommy Time". It has been promoted to "Mom's Time".  Mom has about as much free time as Mommy did. I went from running after toddlers all day to driving them to their many activities & sports. I will, however, forever be known as MilwaukeeMommy - that is my username on just about every forum I've ever been a part of. I think my Ebay user name is the only name that is different, only because I wasn't clever enough to think of it back when I started selling many many years ago. 

So we finally had a SUPERB spring day here in Wisconsin today! And a SATURDAY, bonus!!! I took a few pictures today. Ok, I took a LOT of pictures today. Here's a day in the life:

They survived! My hyacinths rarely reach full bloom. They peek out so early, then we always get hit with yet more snow. We did get snow, just a week ago, & these were covered. But no damage done. This picture was taken early in the morning, by late afternoon they were OPEN! Why didn't I take a picture? I have no idea! Tomorrow....

The first varmint of the season. Where are you headed, little critter?  Go ahead - go in my garden. There's nothing there yet. Ha!

Well ok, there's a *little* something. Here comes the rhubarb! Can't wait!

I love that my boys were out bright & early today. I love it even more that they didn't argue at all! Hardly. 

Baseball season starts in just a few weeks ... gotta get some practice in!

I really  hope that's not the ball he was trying to hit on the ground in front of him. 

That one was definitely outta here! The next Ryan Braun ....

They even helped with some yard work. Aren't they awesome kids?!

We have a bluebird house in the middle of our yard. We've gotten a pair of bluebirds every single year that we've had it. I've heard from many people that the same pair usually come back to the same house each year. 

Isn't he gorgeous? I think he's watching my boys play baseball!

Now he's looking at me, wondering who the kook is sitting on top of the swingset snapping so many pictures of him. 

We ended our day with dinner on the deck. Perfect end to a perfect spring day!

If you're still with me, thank you :)  You may have heard I got a new camera last year & I *heart* it so much! My kids just roll their eyes when they see me with camera in hand!

And stay tuned .... because I just *may* have done something this morning that I haven't done in a while .... & I just *may* post the details here in the next day or two :)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Love your photo's Michelle and the diary of your spring day. I've never seen a bluebird before, what a beauty and good to see your boys enjoying the day too. Chris :-)
