Welcome, Spring!

This weekend, we decided to take advantage of the lovely weather (finally) get outside. The girls and I had been cooped up for almost two weeks with viruses, rain, and general ickies.

We hit up the farmer's market, got some lovely veggies, and then headed to Tryon Creek State Park for the Trillium Festival. Ava loves nature hikes lately, so I gave her a grocery bag and let her pick up pinecones, seeds, leaves, and branches. We had a great time enjoying the scenery and trying to identify the plants and flowers that we found.
