Spring is starting to peek out.

What!  Two posts in one day?  INSANITY!!

Today was a gorgeous day.  Okay, not as gorgeous as yesterday because it was overcast, and not sunny, but it was warm, with a nice breeze, so still gorgeous in my book.  The family and I decided to hit one of the local trails for a nice long walk.  We got a couple of okay pictures…it’s still a little barren looking, plus the gray skies make everything a little monotone, but it’s nice to see those little bit of color starting to poke out from under the browns and grays.

It won’t be long till things will look all technicolor like this

Okay…maybe not that bright, but close.  In the meantime here are a few more streaks of color we got to enjoy today.

The first few blue bonnets.  Soon places will be covered with them.  My favorite time of the year is when these are in full bloom and the sides of the highways, and roads are nearly solid blue from all the blue bonnets.

The Red Bud trees are streaking the scenery with their purple blossoms.

The ducks are out to play.

It appears this bright little guy is trying to look his best for a potential girlfriend.

It was quite the enjoyable day, and our 3 mile walk got out blood pumping nicely, and burned off some of the kids pent up energy.  It was a nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
