Spring is in the Air

Although we have had terrible weather so far this spring (cold, gloomy and rainy), there have been a few sunny days when we have been able to get outside for a bit.  Yesterday it was actually 80 degrees here and very hot and humid.  We were outside all afternoon and the girls were getting soaked by their water table.  These pictures are from a day last week when we went for a little walk around the block.  We had to cut it short after Boothe peed her pants and I had to awkwardly carry here home trying not to get too wet myself.

 It hasn't been a good year for flowers.  Apart from this day, our crocus bloomed and died without us being able to enjoy then.  My daffodils aren't looking so great either and time will only tell how the hyacinths do.
 Boothe collected  all the sticks she could carry.

We slept last night with our windows opened and the ceiling fan on...bliss.  The perfect temperature.  Then to add to this nice sleep, it thunder stormed which is so relaxing especially when falling asleep.  And to top off this great night of sleeping conditions, both of the girls slept until 7am without waking up once during the night.  I woke up this morning so rested, so thankful and ready to tackle my to-do list.  Here's to a good  night sleep and a productive day!

  3. Answer to a great night sleep -- Wear the girls out with long walks and fresh air!! Love Gramma Kath
