Dorothea Dix Park

Woah. It has been almost two months since I last posted. March and April were chaotic to say the least. At the end of March I flew out to California due to a family emergency. Toward the beginning of April there was massive flooding in our apartment. We were not able to live in our apartment thanks to all of the damage and mold. We finally moved back in about a week ago and have spent the past week trying to catch up on all the disasters that have happened the last two months.

On the bright side, all of this inspired to BUY A HOUSE! We close on June 12th, maybe even a little earlier! Best birthday present ever (after Freckles of course)!

The weather this past week has been gorgeous. Everything is starting to bloom and the trees are a riot of lime green. This is one of my favorite times of year. The warm weather and our new neighborhood inspired us to check out parks near our new home. We decided to check out the Dorothea Dix Park in Hampden.

I had never visited this park before, but instantly recognized it. I have driven it by several times before and had nicknamed it the Soviet park thanks to that rather 1960's bridge...and the fact that I am really weird.

The remaining pictures are all of the glimpses of spring we caught, including Fiddleheads, a Maine spring delicacy!
