I absolutely love spring and the Easter holiday in particular. There's something so life affirming about the long-awaited change of the seasons. Finally, saying goodbye to winter and welcoming in warmer weather, sunny skies, and green grass.... it's especially wonderful being able to enjoy this special time of year with Philip. Since he was born in September there was very little opportunity for us to be outside enjoying the weather before it turned cold, and winter just seemed to drag on and on this year. We're loving getting outdoors with him now and watching him experience a beautiful day. What a gift to be witness to the wonder of a new life exploring the world around him!
We ventured to Fredericksburg to have Aunt Natalie take some Easter pictures today. Philip wasn't at his smiliest, but Natalie managed to get some great shots anyway. Here's one of my favorites.
