A glimpse of Spring

I don't know about anybody else, but this Mommy has definitely had enough of this hideous cold weather. I'm finding it more and more challenging to keep 2 kiddos entertained in this house, we're certainly experiencing Spring Fever around here! I find as the years go by that I'm not nearly as fond of the cold weather as I used to be. I was talking to my Grandpa several months ago,(has it really been since Christmas that I have talked to him? Note to self: Must call to check on them more often!) and mentioned my distaste for the cold, he said that I was just getting smarter! He spends his winters in Florida, lucky him!
Today was such gorgeous weather, I still put coats or sweatshirts on the kids, probably more out of habit than necessity, and we went outside to play. Tyler loves just 'exploring', walking around, jabbering to Sophie. The sand box continues to Brianna's favorite thing to play with. We took a walk, spent some time swinging, dug for 'treasures', (specifically, a golden bone for Sophie, alas, was never found,) and made sandcastles. It was a very successful day! Now if you'll excuse me, I just remembered that I have 2 loads of laundry that need to be folded!

What a fun day!! Yes, sometimes we must forgo the laundry in order to spend precious time with the kids!! You're a good mommy! Don't worry about the laundry!!

Oh, I'm so behind on the blog thing! Sure enjoyed all your updates though, and the pictures. Tyler is looking more filled out. Our weather is getting warmer too, and we are sooo glad!
