we’ve got the fever, so we’re busting outta the cabin

Oh hey…I think I see spring….

crocus and tulips peeking through the bark...

That means we can bust out of the house and play OUTSIDE.

The Sluiters have been feeling pretty blah lately, so we thought that we should get some fresh air.

Who stole my baby?

getting the ride out of winter storage

look mom, DIRT!

it's much better out here without the snow

getting the golf clubs out for the first time this season

can't wait to ditch the hat and coat...warmer weather, come soon!

We were only out for about 45 minutes, but it was what we all needed!

Are you ready for spring too?


Also?  Today is the last day to “like” Eddie’s picture in the Modern Bird Facebook Photo Contest.

You just “like” Modern Bird, and then “like” Eddie’s picture (it’s number 94 in the line up).

Do us a solid and click that cute button and “like” our guy, will ya?

About Katie

Just a small town girl...wait no. That is a Journey song. Katie Sluiter is a small town girl, but she is far from living in a lonely world. She is a middle school English teacher, writer, mother, and wife. Life has thrown her a fair share of challenges, but her belief is that writing through them makes her stronger.


  1. What a cute cute kiddo! I see why you’re so proud mama! And I love the photo of the peeking crocus. Spring is a very cool thing.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  2. Just getting that vitamin D fix completely changes how you feel, doesn’t it?

    • You’re right! The vitamin D just makes your whole life feel so much better!! Soaking up the sun, even if it’s still a little chilly, feels so good!

  3. Where did you get that touque????? WHERE.
    Also, green = happy
    Also Eddie = cutness = happy

  4. Yes, it is great to get them OUT!!!
