It's not SPRING, but it sure feels like it.

It seems as though the haze of gray has lifted & the sun is here to stay. We spent the weekend enjoying the beautiful weather & just getting reacquainted with the outdoors. Our weekend started off with a walk & a play date with Miss Kelsea Rae at Veterans Park. They both enjoyed the swings, the slides & of course the sand.

Then yesterday we spent the afternoon in the backyard pushing around the lawn mower (the toy popping one of course- you know I don't do yard work) & getting soaked at the water table. As you can see Johnnie needed to cool down even more. He kind of reminds me of a marathon runner cooling off during a water break. He was so sad when I dragged him kicking & crying for more outside in to the house to dry off & eat dinner. Joey just sat in his bouncy chair happy to be only wearing a diaper & listening to his brother play.While outside I decided it was time for me to turn my camera away from my children & get a shot of a part of our tree. I used to ONLY photograph landscapes & nature, but since the arrival of Johnnie & now Joey in my life I haven't taken ONE photo of anything else until now. Both Rick & I were really happy with the photo & have decided that it will be the perfect addition to the blank wall space in our living room.It's Monday again which means Rick is back at work & Joey has aged another week already. He is becoming so much fun with each passing day & I swear he is planning something in that little 10 week old head of his. I leave you with this photo & promise to have more this week as we enjoy the boys' gramma & grandpa Joe's visit starting tomorrow.

That little one does look like he is thinking about something in that photo. It's so nice to be able to get outside and play.

I love watching Johnnie because I know that will be Dane in a few months...my fav is the shot of him playing in the sand & water table. He is soaked!!! And he looks like he is having a blast. Here's to Spring (and Shamrock shakes :-)!
