If I'm being honest, NJ weather has never gotten me excited. It's usually cloudy and gray. It's usually either cold or hot - not a lot of comfortable in between temperatures. Then again, I say "usually" but of all the times I've visited over the last 11 years, it's only been for a handful of days at a time, so maybe it's not fair to label NJ as a bad weather state.
But, but, but, our recent spring break visit proved to have a week of sunny skies and mild temps. Despite temps in the low 60's, Grady Lee asked "why is it always winter in New Jersey?" and if wondered if he could wear shorts again as soon as he got home. I may hail from the north, but my kids have southern blood.
Since spring arrived early this year, we were just in time for tulips - my favorite flower. The colors were brilliant! I'm not sure my boys even noticed the richness of color and scent and were much more interested in the fountains, the tree houses, and the trees they could climb.here, if you're interested in seeing more. (Yes, Mom, that means you.)
