Beautiful Days.

I am the first to admit that in the dead of winter, especially this winter, I wondered many times, why we choose to live in the great state of Minnesota. It was a long, bitterly cold, ugly winter and spring was long delayed.

But now that it's here, I remember some of the things I do love about this state and how much the sun just makes life here so much rosier.

We've been blessed with a few beautiful days, and by the looks of the forecast it looks like it's finally here to stay. So with the sunshine and the warmth comes the usual spring chores.

For J, mowing the lawn, weeding the yard, cleaning the garage.

For me, that means sitting on a lawn chair and watching.

Just kidding.

I brought out H's playset and the picnic table and made sure no one got run over by the lawn mower, or in H's case run over by a car.

Most of all I love to be outside and play and run around and take walks and just enjoy every ounce of the beautiful days we get, because they always go by quickly.

Our first picnic. In the garage. And yes that's McDonalds he's eating. I've given up on Mother of the Year for 2008.
The sandbox is out and what cracks me up is that even the big ones love it.
H, always the first to come in, cries and watches out the window longingly.
No, it really wasn't quite warm enough for this but somethings you just have to learn yourself.
Same goes for him.
I love this picture of the three of them running after each other around the house.
It is amazing the things he can do this year compared to last year. He is full boy and is definitely going to give me a run for my money this summer. Thankfully he still takes a nap, because I might be needing one too.
And beautiful days outside bring every day baths again.
There is something about sunkissed faces getting all cleaned up that I love at the end of the day.

I too love sunkissed faces in the bath at the end of the day. I don't love the sludge of dirt in my tub when the water drains. I swear j can manage to cover every square inch of his body with dirt. Wait until H is 4. Now that is going to be a fun summer.

PS- It says J, but it is really Kim. He hijacked my auto log in and I don't want to lose my comment. : )

I love beautiful spring days! And am enjoying them more now that Laney is older! H is so adorable! (So is T and M, and I think the swimsuit is so hilarious! I remember doing the same thing!)
