Spring has Sprung!

I don't know if anyone is out there, but I thought I'd say hello. This is one of those rare moments in limbo between two vacations. I just got back from a two-week cross-country trekk and I'm about to leave tomorrow for a vacation to visit my parents in Arizona. I don't know what I was thinking with my planning there, but what can you do??

Anyway, Spring has arrived in Madison and it has been gorgeous. I've been taking Benton out on walks every night and he LOVES it. I tried taking Phinneas one night and he went with me, but he was not a happy camper! Too funny.

Not a whole lot to report otherwise. Work is great. The weather improves day-by-day. We've got a lot lined up in the coming months and we really couldn't be happier!
