Winter is turning to spring rapidly here in Leavenworth. The days are getting longer and lighter. The sun is getting brighter and warmer but a frost still makes its way in the morning. A glimpse of snow still sits on the mountains.
We had friends make a last minute trip this weekend to visit us and it was so nice to be with them. You know when you know someone so well and everything is easy? That is what it is like with Zach + Lauren.

spring when the world is mud-
luscious the little
whistles far and wee
and eddieandbill come
running from marbles and
piracies and it’s
when the world is puddle-wonderful
old balloonman whistles
far and wee
and bettyandisbel come dancing
from hop-scotch and jump-rope and
Sometimes you just have to jump in a puddle. Sometimes you just have to laugh. You just have to run around and be silly. Sometimes, you just have to play.
