Today was a perfectly lovely day. It was warm and lots of sunshine popped through the partly cloudy skies. We've been having a lot of rain and dark, gray cloudy days, so this day was a gift, and we soaked it up! The girls and I were outside by 10, and spontaneously went to the park, where we stayed almost exclusively for the next 2 1/2 hours! My wonderful sister, Amy, shared her food with us and we had a picnic with another friend. We were pretty pooped by the time we walked home, and I declared DVD time so I could put up my feet and be still for a bit. Then we met another friend at another park - one we had never been too, and that's always a treat. The girls loved playing in the sand; Moo loved jumping off of various flat surfaces onto the grass and sand. Snack and bath time followed, and then Daddy was home! We were outside for a good four hours today, meaning I didn't clean my bathrooms and sweep and mop like I had planned, but who cares? I don't! I love to be outside. I love the spring. I passed by all sorts of romantic blossoms on my walk this morning. It's a lovely time of year.
