Ready, Set, MARCH!

 

seattle-sail-boatsIt is hard to believe that it is already March!  Daylight savings time is just around the corner (March 12) which means our evenings are going to get lighter and longer.  I love this time of year when the bulbs are starting to emerge from the ground, the leaves are coming back on the trees, and it is easier to do fun activities after the work day.

There’s just one problem – Seattle may have missed the memo that spring is coming because we just had another day of SNOW!
