today is a good day.
the weather went from a chilly 56 this morning to 90 this afternoon.
that's spring.
the sky is the most glorious shade of blue and that alone is making me smile.

after dropping the girls off, aubrey and i put  our jackets on and headed out for a walk.
we went around the "big block" noticing all the things that almost four year olds notice.
we talked about shadows, rollie pollie bugs and the fact that right now...our house was empty!
she was surprisingly fascinated with that realization and dwelled on it for several pushes of those pedals.

we came back to our street and it was so pretty out we kept going and did our "little block" too.
by the time we got home our jackets were history!

dave worked so hard outside this weekend.
i love our yard in the spring.
everything is so green and lush and the sprinklers still don't have to be on every day of the week!
i guess that's one reason to be grateful for those rainy days.

after a quick marathon floor cleaning we headed to story time at our little library and then off to see jane for lunch. we almost missed her.  when we got to school she was walking in line towards the cafeteria with her head continuing to flip backwards looking for us. luckily we are both tall and easy to spot in a crowded hallway!:)

dare i say if we were out of the shade it was actually hot at the park.
i think we are in for a loooooong summer!

after dropping janey off we had a little play date out back with our sweet new neighbors.
the girls played in the water table and slid and swung and jumped for about an hour and a half..
it makes me so happy that they have moved behind us.
the twin girls are a little younger then aubrey and their son is about a year old.
perfect backyard play mates.
i love this neighborhood and all our wonderful friends.

after school the big girls got their hair cut and she braided them into messy buns.
so sweet and perfect for a hot day.
we ended the evening with play time way past our normal outside time.
i tell ya...our minds are in summer already but the school calendar is just not cooperating with us.:)

hope your tuesday was terrific.
have a happy day,
not sure why i stopped these...but here we go again:)
{thankful for}
 a beautiful day

  1. Wow...that was one busy day! Please send some of that sunshine this way...we were 55 and drizzle yesterday. Poor little Flynn keeps telling winter to go away...last week we were outside without jackets!

    Love the girls' hair...and your house...no...your Home!...is beautiful! Have a nice day, friend!

  2. 90? Hard to believe. But yes, that's spring! Here we're only in the 60's today and I'm wearing a sweatshirt around in the house and still in jean! Sure hope it warms up for Abigail's party this weekend! Love your sweet little on and her bike ride around the block. And soooooo jealous of a wonderful neighborhood with instant little playdates. Not too many kids around our house. But maybe someday. I love how you pack your day with the goodness of just being home and BEING with your girls. Those are the good days for sure. Have a happy Wednesday, tara
