It's not even March yet, so I'm trying not to get my hopes up, but it's hard not to bid farewell to the winter doldrums when it's been sunny and warm outside most afternoons for quite a few days. Mid afternoon is a little cooler (and by cooler, I mean 63 degrees), so we eat lunch on the porch, out of the wind.
These kids couldn't be happier to be outside making messes in the backyard again. We've moved rocks, outlined a flower bed, further uncovered what used to be a koi pond, and relocated 36 worms from one side of the yard to the other more muddy side. And that was just this morning.
I love a day that requires a mid-afternoon bath. That's always a good sign around here.
