Spring!

Today was the first weekend day with actual sunshine since what feels like last fall. The high was a balmy 50 degrees- but the sunshine made it feel like the tropics.  We went a bit weekend warrior crazy and managed to cram a ton into one day. It has been so rainy for so long a glimmer of summer makes me giddy happy.

The girls were up right around 7 and so had a leisurely breakfast. Hubs got the girls ready when I was out in the garden weeding and starting some more seedlings inside. I made the mistake of letting the girls a few weeks ago pick and plant from seed packets – so have a bevy of very healthy who knows what.  So managed to plant some of them strategically around the yard – the weather tonight is supposed to plummet into the high 20’s so will probably freeze everything out there.

So first stop was the Zoo which is a lovely location that has a view of commencent bay and if you get there right when it opens not crowded at all. Polar bears, carousel and lots of special activities because of earth day. We all had a blast.

  HAPPY

Back home for the little ones naptime and with Maren outside – gardening, chalk drawing, and smashing up various plants to see if we could make a paint that would dye paper.

Then after nap, dug out the bikes from the garage and headed for the playground. That had it’s ups and downs – literally – and was obvious it was time to go home after a bit.

Chinese take-out for dinner and now all snuggled in our bed in pjs watching a movie.

Ahhh I love weekends and I love spring!
