Spring, How I love thee!


We have been able to play outside everyday for 3 days now. Its amazing. The weather has been glorious. We just came in from two hours of sunshine and perfect temperatures. *sigh* So great! We had our first picnic on the lawn of the year. The kids didn't eat much because they were having such a great time just being outside, but I didn't care. We weren't driving each other crazy, I couldn't see my messy house!


Ah, spring. I have missed you!!
There is something about spring that just makes life a little easier to handle. I feel like lately I've been smothered in everything. Just feeling overwhelmed by life in general. And today, relief. Sunshine. A good book. Happy kids. Fun neighbors. Ahhhh. I feel like I can breath again. I might even go for a jog outside today...maybe. :)

AMEN!!! I too am LOVING our weather right now - we walked to the park yesterday with daisy on the leash and caleb in the stroller and it was all i could do to hold back the singing and skipping!

Isn't it amazing how a change in weather can affect our whole day? I can tell my mood is so much better once the winter is gone. Of course living in Utah I still won't be surprised if it snows by next week:)

Isn't it just great? Now that we have a backyard we get to play outside a lot and it's such a relaxer for me!

Diane,
I miss you. Let's get together and sing.
So, I'm glad you're feeling better. Too bad not such great weather in the coming week. Anyway, did you go to sing in the prophet's ward last week? I wasn't able to, but I'm wondering if he was there. Anwyay, cute pictures of your kids! Hope you have a good week.
Love,
me.
