A taste of Spring

It has been over 60 degrees 3 of the last 4 days!! Amazing I tell you. Today we didnt even wear jackets!!

Friday we went to the BIG park on Culp Lane. Very cool park with two slides and swings, and a merry go round. I took the kids there thinking that they could play with other kids. See, we have a playground in our backyard (not ours-it belongs to the church next door) but there are never any other kids there. But, we drove clear across town on a warm, sunny, Friday afternoon for socialization and found...noone. 3 people using the walking track and that was it. Its okay, though, because they had everything to themselves and I didnt have to watch them very close.

After the park (and a quick change to rid Charger of his mud covered pants and shoes-he found the one mud puddle in the whole park), we went to the library and checked out 26 books. I just kept finding good ones. We are learning about Dinosaurs and Valentines day in school this week so most have to do with one of those themes. Mustang decided to use the men's bathroom and Charger tried to play on another patron's laptop, but overall the trip was good as we didnt break anything or rip and books :)

Saturday Daddy, the kids, and I all went outside to play. It was fabulous. To be able to sit outside and play on our swings and just enjoy the day together was so nice. We opened all our windows and our house smelled like Spring. Man I wish I could bottle up that smell!!

Today the kiddos and I hit the stores. Great deals at Penneys and the Goodwill (a different Goodwill) and then the grocery store. Shopping with a 3 year old and a 1 year old really isnt that much fun. Its not really the 1 year old, its the 3 year that's the problem. Doesnt want to listen!!

Tomorrow its supposed to be warm again. I hope to open the windows and do a good cleaning before the weather reminds me that its still Winter.
