Getting Ready for Spring

Yesterday I spotted a patch of grass in my backyard, and this morning it's only about fifty percent snow-covered. When my family and I went skiing/boarding on Sunday, the bottom of Snowbasin was the consistency of a Slurpee. The big topic of conversation around here has been whether or not we can squeeze in another day or two of our beloved winter sports, or if we should just store our gear in the closet and call it good. Then again, if our weather man is to be believed, we have a couple of 70 degree days coming, followed by a snowstorm. So who knows?

I have some pretty fun things scheduled for spring. My husband, boys and I are road-tripping it to Las Vegas later this month. My husband has a meeting and a triathlon and the boys and I have a lot of swimming to catch up on. Then, for spring break, we're all heading to Denver to visit friends and family and my home town. While there, I get to do a couple of school visits--my very favorite authorly pasttime. Then we'll open up our family cabin in Idaho, where we spend many a weekend come summer.

What do you do to get ready for the warmer seasons?
