Spring in Georgia

In celebration of the first day of Spring, on Friday we took a long and leisurely walk through our neighborhood and down the "cow road." It was a gorgeous day with so many beautiful things to look at!!! Birds, flowers, blue sky, cows, donkeys, sheep, and green grass.
At the end of the road is an old cemetary. The oldest known grave there is from prior to 1843. It's so interesting to explore. The gravestone in the collage is for a man named Jason F. Stovall who died in 1878. And the gravestone in the picture above was carved by someone who had not received too much education, I'm guessing.

After our walk we threw out the picnic blanket and had a picnic in our front yard. (Peasant bread, pears, almonds, and granola bars.)
It felt almost criminal to go inside. It was such a beautiful day.

How beautiful. I can't believe your girls are already in shorts. We need to move to Georgia! I love sunny weather and we don't get it in Eugene until May or June. You know you lived here once. :-) Enjoy that sunny weather for me.
