Don't get me wrong, California is beautiful! But nothing compares to spring time in Ohio. It's absolutely beautiful right now, everything is so green and the flowers are blooming. It's amazing to see how God takes the bleakness of winter and transforms it into beauty, much like he does in our own lives.
We worked in our front yard all day Saturday planting flowers. Hopefully they don't die =) Everyone out here spends hours working on their yards so we figured we should try and fit in.
For mother's day we went for a hike in the Delaware state park which is right down the road from us. Ella had so much fun sitting in her backpack carrier, she loves looking around at the world. We hiked down to the river and had fun skipping rocks. I had a really great first mother's day! Ella has been such a blessing to Paul and I. I absolutely love being a mommy. There is nothing better than seeing her face light up when I go get her out of her crib in the morning or hearing her sweet giggle. I'm SO blessed that God has given me this incredible privilege and responsibility.
