Warm Weather!

What a great end to the week. Monday-Wednesday was pretty rainy and warm, so when we woke up on Thursday morning to find sun and no snow, we headed to the playground. We met friends of ours there and the kids had a fantastic time. They were so excited to be at a playground and everytime they did something daring (which had become routine last summer) they ran up to me, beaming with pride, saying, "I did it, I did it!" The sun, fresh air, and warm temps sure did a lot for my disposition, too. Afterwards we went to a little pizza place we'd never been to before and I was amazed at how good their chicken fingers were. Like.. I could go for some right now. :)

When we got home, it wasn't quite naptime so the kids played out front and in the car while I got all the trash and soggy hats/mittens and whatnot out of the car. After naptime, we went back out again for a walk around the block. Our neighbor had some flooding and had lots of tubing pouring water into the street, so the kids marveled at the 'river' and then spent a good 20 minutes finding stuff to drop down the drain. On the way back we found some lovely sticks to bang on the sidewalk, then threw them in the marsh, then found more pinecones to bring home. Fun stuff.

So today, it was nice again, though a little bit chillier. We met some different friends at a different park and, once again, had a great time. The kids played tag and hide and seek, pretended to be the billy goats Gruff, and made mulch soup. Afterwards we went to Kelly's for lunch with our friends and the kids had fun there, too.

Not bad for early March. :)
