March madness...

When we left home a bit more than a week ago, it was 70 degrees and spring was blooming here in our little corner of the world. As you can see from my trip mosaic above, we spent the week with all of our grandchildren, though not all at the same time on this trip.

In Boston, it was chilly and blustery, but that did not stop us from going to a sing-along (one of the twins' favorite activities) and the Childrens' Museum, among other outings. I got to ring the bells at the top of Harvard's Lowell House, which I had to overcome my fear of heights to do. (It was worth it.)

Back in Colorado, we went to another Childrens' Museum, while a spring blizzard was beginning to dump snow on us. As the snow accumulated, we hurried back to our hotel and were pretty much snowed in for the rest of our stay in Denver, swimming with the kids and doing indoor things. We managed to get the car dug out this morning and escaped the winter as we got closer to home.

Here, the apricots are beginning to bloom, and the pets seem to have survived our absence very well. Now, I need to do laundry, go to the grocery store, and sort out more emails than I can face this evening! But all of those things can wait until tomorrow, when I hope to feel like I am back on western Colorado time...
