sunny spring days

Sunday, April 20, 2014

There's just something about sunny spring days. You know, the ones where it's finally warm enough to go outside without a jacket (or borderline, but you don't wear a jacket anyways just because you've been wearing one for way too many months). Those days, when you are used to snow, cold, rain and just plain miserable weather, and then the sun comes out.

Today was one of those days. The sun was shining, the neighborhood children littered the streets on new bikes and playing with whatever new toys the Easter bunny brought them. Cars were being washed, garages cleaned, gardening and drinks being had on patios. It was gorgeous day.

Our family had their Easter dinner yesterday so today was just mini-me, Mr. B and I (and Lilo of course). It was a great day. Mini-me went to the park for the first time (it's been a crap winter here) and seeing the utter joy on her face as she slid down the slide and swung in the swing, was the best part of any spring day I have ever experienced. 

I am praying that this winter has had enough of us and that we enjoy many more days like (and warmer than) today. Nothing improves my mood more than being able to spend some time outside with my family in the warm sunshine!

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and got at LEAST one sunny spring day that you got to enjoy with your family! xo
