We were scheduled to go to the Vineyard for an off-season trip (a personal favorite of mine), but that was the same weekend as the blizzard, so we had to postpone to last week. Mother Nature attempted to thwart us again by dumping almost 6 inches of snow on the island the night before, but we persevered. My favorite part about going off-season is that the island is practically deserted, occupied only by the hardy year-round people. It does make it much harder to find a place to eat (because almost nothing is open), and it wasn't exactly beach weather. But the thing I really go to the Vineyard for is quality time with my grandparents, and there was still plenty of that.
Then we needed to head back for Easter prep and execution.
Spring has sprung - the bulbs Chloe planted last fall are just starting to poke up!
OK, this one *may* be a bit of staged Spring...
Please note... there is still. snow.
How the babe spent the egg hunt
We are so ready for Spring! We've got lots of exciting things to set up - this year, we will have a large vegetable garden, plus some berry bushes, so I'll be doing a lot of freezing and canning. We are also building a chicken coop to have a flock of hens to lay eggs for us. (Yes, right now we have a small flock of newborn baby chicks in our house - saving that for the next post!)
And most importantly, a big birthday in the next few days - Addy turns 3!!
