Ahhh, Spring Has Sprung

The kids are so happy!! The drama of the Final Four is over and spring is in the air.

First, we went, we saw, we celebrated, we cried and it was a painful ride home. Big kudos to Indianapolis. The downtown celebration for the Final Four was fantastic! We spent the majority of the day at Scotty’s Brewhouse, which was home base for Mountaineer fans. We got there in time to hear the pep band and see the cheerleaders. YAY! The place was packed until the MSU v Butler game started, which is when all the lucky fans who spend money like water got to go to the game. (The reason I say this is because the lowest price we found tickets for were $400.00 each. Really?)

I don’t need to rehash the game. The tears fell when Butler went down and fell even harder as Duke ran the score up on us. (Thanks, Coach K.) Luckily we were with great friends and were able to dance our cares away as we celebrated with the Butler fans. Again…the car ride home was painful.

But we came home to gorgeous weather…our back yard is our favorite place to be right now. Beau and Sasha both beg to be let outside. Beau is allowed…Kitty is not. Actually I’m headed to the pet store later this week to purchase a cat harness. (Don’t laugh…these actually work.) I can’t stand the fact that she’s stuck inside while Beau is out milking the outdoors for all their worth.

So how can we keep her indoors when Beau is outside sniffing the air and frolicking in the grass? I’m not 100% sure how this will all go down. I wonder how Beau will react? Thinking his small sister is out to play? I’ll document the excitement. I hope we all survive.

I also hope that spring has sprung where you are. Drew has been hard at work outside fixing up our yard and planning the birth of our deck. Yes….we are building a deck this weekend. We. Are. So. Excited. Again…I’m sure I’ll document our journey so stay tuned for big developments. We have enlisted the help of our neighbors and friends who can be bribed with pizza and beer. (Which is almost everyone we know.) Wish us luck!
