We Have It

Spring Fever. I think everyone has it!

I'm finding myself wanting to use the saying, "Get out there and get the stink blown off ya!" Ever heard that? It's from one of my favorite movies...any one recognize it?? It's such fitting quote for kids who have been cooped up in the house all winter.

The weather today was absolutely beautiful. I know it will get cold again before Spring really arrives, but it's nice to just pretend it's here to stay :).

I was totally in the spirit today. Flip flops, windows down, picnic, and a trip to the park...


The girls played their little hearts out.

Isn't it so great when they can get outside and run off some of that energy???

They were so worn out, they could barely keep their eyes open on the way home.

I think little Kinley was asleep before I even turned the light out...


Sigh. The way she lays her sweet little head on "Monkey" is just the cutest thing I've seen in a while.

Not that I'm partial.

Alright, maybe I'm a little partial :).

Anyone else really ready for warmer weather??

As soon as it was even slightly warm I through on my hoodie and took the baby for a walk in the park. Sunlight! We have sunlight. It just makes ya giddie!

That saying is from a movie?! HMMM! Us country folk have been saying that for years, but you have to say it like this, "go outside and get the stink blowed off of ya!" :)

Love that picture of the park, the colors are gorgeous!

We have the fever too! Letting the girls run around at the park is such a great way to wear them out! And such a relief for mama...I'm right there with you. We have been outside every "warm day" chance we get!

I love Hope Floats!!
And yes, the one day of flip flops was such a tease here too!!!
How can it be 73 on Saturday, but a high on 45 tomorrow??
