Tropical Delight Smoothie

What better way to toast this gorgeous heat wave than with a refreshing tropical smoothie? After hours spent soaking up the sun and running around the park with our Lion, coming home to enjoy a fresh glass of fruit juice is just the cherry on top. Little A. loves this one and is always ready for seconds! 
I still can’t believe that there is nearly no snow left on the ground  and that for the past few days, I’ve been in lightweight dresses and flip flops? Oh, how sweet it is! Today we did a whole lot of Spring cleaning, thanks to my husband who went all out, moving furniture and getting every last dust ball.  Feels so nice to start a new season, doesn’t it?
Have you been spending more time outside these days?  I feel so renewed when we can finally say goodbye to Winter and hello to bare feet and warm breezes. I can’t wait for the outdoor Farmer’s Markets to start up again too – so much to look forward to!  
Hope you are enjoying a wonderful week.

    i’ve heard about your warm weather and man does that ever sound grand! hope it keeps up – we got a sunny weekend (for once!) and yesterday Sean & i went out on our bikes exploring a new beach where they had the most interesting wildlife reserve. lots of birds to spy, one of them is called a northern harrier. it’s the most beautiful bird, kinda a cross between an owl and a falcon. getting outdoors more sure does feel great, you’re right! goodbye winter – huzzah spring! xo ♥
