We Love Nature and Eugene in the Springtime

We took a post tax day trip to visit Aunt Anne and Uncle Ryan in Eugene last weekend. It was a beautiful weekend, so we spent much of our time outside.
Did you know it is ladybug mating season? Well, it is...this was what we found in a couple corners of our first nature walk.

Ladybugs were everywhere.
This is a big step for Mezmur. She usually gets a little nervous around bugs, which she lovingly calls, "butts."
Back at Ryan and Anne's we had some trumpet ears may still be ringing. Heaven help us if Rhett wants to learn how to play the trumpet.

Bird watching on our walk the next day.

We always love our trips to Eugene...Thanks for the fun time Anne and Ryan

Hi Autumn-
This is Lisa (who lives down the street in Myndi and Steve's old place). I just wanted to say hi. I know you got into a fender bender with my mom this weekend (so sorry). I hope you and the kids are okay. Mom is doing okay too- just a little rattled from it.

We had to put our adoption on hold for a few months because Andy lost his job and we weren't sure if we were going to be moving back east. He got another one (thank goodness) and we are staying. Our home study stuff is at the agency and we are just waiting on the background checks. Anyway would love to chat one of these days. You have been on my mind and I love your blog!

I loved this post. I wish I was there. The kids look so happy and healthy. . . as did the lady "butts". Nothing looks better than the Oregon countryside in the spring. Take care. Love ME

We had such a wonderful time with you. Thank YOU for making the trip down, and cramming yourselves into our little duplex. I'm so glad we were able to share such a pretty Eugene weekend!!
