Enjoying Spring

Spring has sprung in New Jersey!  One day we were huddled up in our fleece blankets, the next we were turning on the AC.  Yesterday we enjoyed a family run/bike ride.  Today we decided to go outside and play in the yard.

We have a front yard, not a back yard.  It’s awesome in the winter because it has the perfect hill for sledding.  In the spring it’s kind of annoying because I can’t just send the kids outside to play, I have to be out there with them.  That’s good because I get to outside and relax, read and soak up the sunshine.  It’s not so good because sometimes a mom just needs to be able to send her kids out so she can do dishes without someone tugging on her skirt (not to mention that we can’t have a trampoline or swingset :( )  We are making the best of it, though.

I spread out a sheet on the grass and played with Henry while the other kids ran around.

Spencer ran and kicked the volleyball around (yes, that’s right… volleyball).

    Wow, I’m jealous! We finally hit the mid 40’s this week! But then it’s rainy so still no short sleeves for us. Love those adorable faces!
