Springing into Spring

A weather record today. The temperature soared to 17.9 degrees celsius (64.2 F) shattering the previous record of 15.4C (59.7F) set in 1974. Needless to say, there is an extra spring in my step. The video of my little sprout bounding down the street pretty much sums up my own reaction to the day. (The sprout, of course, looks incredibly cute. I, however, don't think I could get away with that, at least not without a few strange looks.)

While we're springing into spring, here's some footwear to herald the changing of the seasons. These boots, modeled by the sprout, are an undeniable sign that spring is en route. No matter what winter throws at us over the next few weeks, it is well on its way out the door and that is a very, very good thing.

Love the skippin' video! And you do have something to skip about...such warm temps. I guess us older, more mature ones just do the skippin' on the inside, ha.
The boots are granddaughter has ladybug boots, black with red dots and a bug face. She is adorable in them, of course. :-)

Great video - and seriously sassy wellies!The sprout looks wonderful and if I was there, I'd skip with her - because I'm only 8 on the inside!!!

Your sprout has the coolest boots. I want a pair ~ I'm sure I'd be skipping down the street too if I was wearing them. Your weather is incredible. I am in serious envy mode ~ we just had a wind chill warning lifted this afternoon. A balmy -40 something overnight.
