Waiting for the official ceremony at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences!!
Gracie was there (waaay down in the corner). Somehow she didn't get in the pictures! Oh No!
And then the big moment!!
Raleigh's Mayor Nancy McFarlane made the big announcement.
Six more weeks of winter!! But this year, winter has been good to us.
It was a beautiful day to be outside enjoying the beauty of God's creation...groundhogs and all!!
