O Mr Sun... won't you stay?
Yesterday was perfect. Really, Really perfect. The kids spent the majority of the day outside. I had been looking forward to a day like this for a LONG TIME!
In the morning Jensen asked me if we could do the slip 'n slide. Me, with my "not in this state" attitude told him that it was probably going to be too chilly to bring out the slip n' slide. He went about his merry way digging a hole in our grass. This doesn't bother us because our grass is littered with holes. We have a new member of our family... his name is Pesk E. Mole. As noon rolled around I decided to re-think my decision about the slip n' slide. After a brief search, and no slide to speak of, the kids settled for a sprinkler. They were of course ecstatic to be running through the sprinklers.
I was craving this day... drooling over it even. I spent the majority of the summer indoors last year, and feel like It has been raining/snowing ever since I came home. It is not summer yet, but it sure felt like it. It was HOT outside!
I also got a call that little Mees' white count bounced back up...Phew.
We enjoyed a long walk, with the kids peddling their bikes like they have never been on a bike before.
Ellie played with some lady bugs, while Jense manned the hose. Mia lounged in her swing with a sunhat, and I picked up pine cones and weeded with my mom.
*By no means do I equate perfection with picking up pine cones. I do have a weeding tool that transforms me into a weed-a-holic. I could weed for hours!
Yep... perfect day!
