Spring has arrived and my family is trying to savor every moment of the cool weather. With spring my son also had his half birthday, 3 1/2. It’s amazing how quickly they grow. I’ve realized more with every birthday how much I want to freeze time and enjoy every moment. That’s why we started a new tradition, Spring Bucket List.
We started the season by listing every activity we wouldn’t want to miss. From bubbles to water fights and giving our toys a good wash. It’s all about creating memories while enjoying this beautiful AZ spring weather.
About a week ago the backyard was finished up, just waiting patiently to go out on the new sod. To celebrate the yard and the garden going in we hosted a little family celebration. We started off by shopping for all our spring essentials. Then the boys and I spent the day marking things off our bucket list.
Aiden and I started the morning making sun tea. A tradition my mom and I used to do together come spring and summer. Green tea is big in this house so we tried out Bigelow’s green tea. A company my family trusts and has used since I was a kiddo. I remember many mugs filled with Bigelow’s original Constant Comment.
5 teas bags to every 2 quarts of water. Then set out in bright sun for about 5 hours. You’ll want to use up the tea in the day or refrigerate and use within a couple days. Sun tea does not make a very strong tasting tea, but brings out all the flavored.
We ended the day with a taco and sundae bar. Our sun tea took center stage with some pomegranate seeds to add a little extra flavor. My favorite spring activity? Bubbles. It’s something even our littlest nugget can enjoy.
What do you look most forward to when spring arrives?
