Picking strawberries with my kids is my favorite springtime activity.

Cleaning the yard! I can't wait to get out and rake the leftover leaves, trim back vines & shrubs, and get ready for the garden to bloom!

My favorite is doing some spring cleaning. It is a lot of work, but it feels so good when it is all done! I save a lot of money too, because I stop buying groceries (except milk, eggs, and veggies) in order to clean out my freezer and cupboards.

Reorganizing and cleaning the house, and going for a long walk in the fresh spring air afterwards.

I would have a picnic in the park and stroll around the park and take some beautiful pictures for memory.

I want to go up to mountainous area with a picnic, a blanket, and books, and spend all day there until it's dark. Several weekends in a row.

Or planting that herb garden I've been dreaming about. And flowers. Just digging in the soul and then watching the little plants pop up. :)

I love being able to walk everywhere! Now that the weather is nicer and the sun goes down later, I walk to the post office, gym, restaurants, and to do grocery shopping. Saves me a lot on gas just as prices start to rise!

Hanging laundry out to dry. It's a pleasure to climb between air-dried sheets.

I love to go hiking - seeing the forest start to turn green and hear/see birds and other wildlife reminds me why Spring is so great!

I love spring!

Gardening, long walks with my beloved on warm, breezy evenings, and biking are at the top of my list.

Planting flowers! I love to see them when I drive up to the house & I enjoy them on my back patio. I also love eating outdoors, on the patio at home or at restaurants with outdoor seating.

As the snow is melting in spring (in Alaska!), I love looking for moose poop in my front yard. I know moose visit in the winter, because they leave tracks, but I seldom see them. The poop is the proof that they stopped for a while.

I can't wait to make plans with a girl friend to get pedicures and frozen yogurt, now that the weather is so nice.
