My kids love going to the library, and I love not having to buy books! (Just kidding, I buy too many books...) Anyway, Beware of the Frog is a favorite library book at our house right now. So, if you have young kids, you should go to your library and check it out. Very funny!

"We have every reason to be optimistic in this world. You can't, you don't build out of pessimism or cynicism. You look with optimism, work with faith, and things happen. Things will work out. Keep trying. Be believing. Be happy. Don't get discouraged. Things will work out."
- Gordon B. Hinckley

I'm thinking I'll create some of these cute paper daffodils with the kids this week to celebrate the arrival of Spring. And, since I didn't plant any bulbs last Fall (because I am a professional procrastinator) I am on the lookout for some forced daffodils that I can plant in the front yard. I know, I'm a cheating gardener.

Excursions to Gardner Village are few and far between for me, since I live so far south. But, I love to go as often as I can, and it usually centers around my mother's visits to Utah. So, since the family was in town for grandma's funeral, we made a visit to Gardner Village to check out all of the cute home decor, and of course, a stop at the candy store for some fudge. The kids checked out (chased) the ducks, and were generally happy little people. This little spot in West Jordan will always be a favorite of mine.
