Spring, New Items, and a Giveaway!

It's been a busy spring so far (and a hot one too). It cooled off a bit today and we're having a little rain so hopefully that will wash some of the pollen out of the air. It's been absolutely terrible.

Ladybug adorned with pollen

The pollen is all over everything, even that little ladybug in the picture above, and it's everywhere you look. I've been sneezing, have watery eyes, feel itchy all over. This is the only thing I don't like about spring. Other than the allergies, it's my favorite time of year with all its gorgeous blossoms. I love how everything turns green and comes to life once again.

The boy is enjoying the season too.
He got a new wave board that he's really pretty good at,
better than his regular skateboard.
And he's not been as bothered by the pollen.

It's not nearly as bad since he's been having allergy shots!

I'd say it's been a good spring so far.
