Why I love the spring time in Boulder

Yes, BIZZARO! Woke this morning to a blanket of white! After a week of 55-73 degree weather this was a bit of a shock, but oh so welcomed! NEED PRECIPITATION! Some peeps say here in Colorado, if you don't like the weather wait 5 minutes. Kind of true. But on most days of the year, try 300, it is SUNNY! Which I love. But, our winter has been quite dry which has us a bit fearful as to how crisp our summer will be. Fires are definitely a problem here, but not quite as crazy as in California (we've been subjected to those when we lived in San Diego). Five years ago while living in Boulder (b/4 we left for San Diego only to return to Boulder this past September for those who haven't read previous posts), we were evacuated from our home as a ring of fire was traveling along the foothills across the street from our house-scary! Fortunately our house didn't burn down!
Even though I was flipping around town in my flops the other day, today I was trudging through town decked out in my boots and hat plowing through the snow in my Land Rover.
Here's the past week in a nutshell.....

Biking through the beautiful St. Julien Hotel and Spa in Boulder only to stop and play with the fountain (note the budding tree and flowers).

Henry on his bike! Check out the rad helmet. He's been living in that thing. Wears it as if it is a ball cap (yes, he's wearing shorts).

Helping mommy and daddy clear the driveway with his "scooper."
