New Favourite Season


It used to be I would say summer was my favourite season of Canada’s four.

I still love summer – the hot weather; the sense of freedom, albeit shorter now that I am not in school; the books to be read; the water to be played in; the trips to attend; the traffic that has disappeared. Yes, I still love summer.

But I think I love spring.

This weekend, temperatures soared to double digits in the celsius world. We went without jackets, mittens and snowpants, and didn’t fuss too much when my guy pulled off his hat.

Yesterday, we spent almost the entire day outside playing on two different swing sets, pulling out our outdoor shovels and pails and loading them up with rocks. We gathered twigs and raked the grass, putting it on the fire. We burned our Christmas tree. We ate our snack outside. We threw rocks in the lake, which is beginning to melt.

It was a fantastic weekend full of sunshine that had heat and enjoyably long days.

I love spring.

Being able to pull off the hat of winter and wear the light jackets of spring gets everyone smiling again! Love the last picture and hope the weather stays warm for you.

Sounds great! I spent the weekend on the couch sick, so I didn't get to go outside, but I don't think we had the same warmth you did. It was very overcast here. I sent the boys out to play later in the afternoon Sunday, but they still had coats and hats on with no complaints about it either so I guess they weren't too hot.

I miss having all four seasons. It's probably the thing I miss most about living in Canada. Love the pictures of the big boy!

I think I would love Spring if we could just get rid of the rest of this snow. Although, aside from my complaining, yesterday was actually very nice. And I'm hopeful that better weather is right around the corner!

I love the feeling of wearing just a spring/fall weight jacket, as opposed to the gigantic down jackets....

It was beautiful in our neck of the woods too. We took a walk without out jackets and there was a soft breeze and the smell of spring. Spring is my favorite season definitely.
