1. What is one of your favorite "outdoor" activities during the Spring? **Yard work. I like to go play in the park with my kids, too.

2. Who does the yard work? You, DH, or do you hire someone? **Well, since we live with FIL he does the yard work. He has 2 acres to mow and has this really huge mower that's really powerful. I *love* to mow the lawn but I think this mower is too strong for me! :(

I'm looking forward to next Saturday, though. DH will be home and I plan on going out and making flower bed and planting flowers while he stays in and watches the kids!

3. Have you cut your grass yet this Spring? **Yes, FIL did last week. HE uses a mulcher so it doesn't look too great, but at least it's cut.

4. If you could pick an ideal temperature to have everyday of Spring, what would it be? **75 with a barely-noticeable breeze.

5. What kind of outside toys do you have for your kids to play with? (EX: swing set, jungle gym, sand box, etc.....) **None. We have a basketball hoop on the deck (2nd story). I let DS take out his scooter (which he rides very well for a 3.75yo) and we have a big wagon they play with. I don't trust my FIL's yard (long story) so they can only play on the deck. We do take them in the yard to play "soccer" and tball, but they can't go out alone. We don't even have a fence, so it's a little dangerous.

Aaaaaaahhhhh...I *love* spring!

2. We both do the yard work.

3. We( well, dh) mowed the lawn last week so we could seed the lawn

4. I would like it to be 69 deg. It was 76 yesterday - too warm for me! :o)

5. We were just given a jungle gym, not huge, but it has a slide, and it was free! So it is perfect!

I love these questions!

1. What is one of your favorite "outdoor" activities during the Spring? >>I love running outside in the spring. It's usually the right temp for just shorts and a t-shirt. It's great after a few months of either running inside at the gym or having a ton of clothes on!

2. Who does the yard work? You, DH, or do you hire someone? >>both. We both spread mulch. I plant whatever gets planted. Then he mows.

3. Have you cut your grass yet this Spring? >>I don't think so! But it did look like it about a week ago.

4. If you could pick an ideal temperature to have everyday of Spring, what would it be?>>70-73. Nice enough for shorts but not too hot.

5. What kind of outside toys do you have for your kids to play with? (EX: swing set, jungle gym, sand box, etc.....) >>DH and my dad build a play house with 2 levels and a slide. Then there are swings and a sandbox.

Oh, just being able to get out and enjoy the out doors. We do so much. We go feed the ducks and fly kites or just sit outside and relax.

Dh and my dad(who lives with us)

3. Have you cut your grass yet this Spring?

Nope, not yet. But we probably need to soon.

4. If you could pick an ideal temperature to have everyday of Spring, what would it be?

70 degrees. Warm enought for shorts but not to hot that you can't breathe.

Swing set, two cars, a bike, a horse thing you sit on and ride and a sand box. We share property with my MIL who raises my BIL's daughter. So they my ds and her have to share the toys outside.
