Springtime In Kansas

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie!  Great news, readers!  Yesterday, here in the great state of Kansas, we nearly hit 80 degrees (26.6ºC)!  It was crazy windy, with gusts up to 60 mph.  We hung out on the deck after Mom did some work and did this:

"Ahhh, Spring!  Isn't this great, girls?!?"
"BOOM!"
"BOOM!"

The good news? This is what it looks like out there today!

From inside the house:
"Noooooo!!!"

"Doesn't this look great, Mom!?!"
"Let's go hang out on the deck some more, Mom!"

Isn't Springtime in Kansas GREAT?!??

We had a lovely walk this morning! Here we are on the water tower trail:

"Is this great or what, Cam?!?"
"I love it!"

"What do you figure the wind chill is?"
"Somewhere in the low 20s, I think.  Just lovely!"

And here we are, stopping to have some fun along the Hudson Trail:

"Ha roo to you!"

What a glorious day!

"I  Kansas in the Springtime!"
"Me, too!"

Spring is just full of surprises!  I hope you have a day as lovely as ours!

Yours sincerely,

  8. You were so lucky to get some snow, that's what WE say, but not Mom. All we got was lots and lots of strong wind and some noisy t-storms that really freaked Ciara out. And now it is on the chilly side. If we aren't going to get snow, we say bring on the spring.

  14. We have snow here, too (in Colorado), but I don't like snow. It's also very cold - only going to be 38 tomorrow!! I hope the warmer Spring weather shows up here sometime soon. Enjoy your day!
