Spring Happenings

The days of March have brought the thaw, and with it, days of longer sunshine and more doing

Today, we went to the gym so I could get my miles in (the goal is 4 miles at least 5 days a week - today was 4 miles and 2000 m rowing)

After the gym, we took a trip to our local science and history museum.

After our morning of play, we took a couple hours to regroup and then headed off to volunteer for the Million Trees Project.  While we have brutal winters, we also have a rich, diverse eco-system.  Living on the Mississippi River and seeing bald eagles flying all winter makes the cold a teensy bit more bearable.

We also have many wonderful volunteer/ecological opportunities, Million Trees Project being a part of it.
