Spring has sprung & then some....

No, I haven't forgotten how to post a blog....we haven't had 'nothing' going on....I just haven't felt motivated. GASP! How can that be? Well, with four kids roaming around this house, blogging (& facebooking, for that matter) have taken a WAY back burner.

But today, I have decided to jump back on the wagon....ha ha. Spring in Colorado has been nice (& a big stormy with a couple of tornado warnings to sit out). The green has returned to Greeley & I love it! Our garden is planted & the grass is getting mowed on a regular basis. Here are some pictures of what has happened up until now to catch you up on The Jacobsen Nation.

We went to the park to play...a park in Loveland. Bergen is posing here on the cannon at the park...DJ used to play on it when he was a kid....

& some of us wrestled with Papa Doug....

We also sanded down our wood floors, stained them, sanded them again & stained them again & finally covered them with varnish......LONG story......painful too, but I'm sure DJ would LOVE to tell it....(yes, it was my fault).

Spring has been fun & there is more fun to come this summer.....& maybe I'm back on the blogging wagon for awhile.....or maybe not.

Pictures are my favorite thing to help us remember what we did! I know some of the "memories" my kids have is because we have pictures to help remind them of what we have done. Wow, you did a lot this spring!! Nice synopsis of that time. What is the April fools egg and toast? And, love the picture of Hatcher giving you a good shot and love Bergen as the tree. so cute. Keep taking those photos and sharing. It's fun to get a peek into your lives. Oh! And lastly, I love your family photos at the top of your blog on the slide. What a fun angle. Good thinking. I want to do that with my family!!
