It May Only Be March

...but lately it's felt more like June.

It's no secret that the weather has been unusally warm this winter and spring. We had been taking advantage of it before, but now that it's light out longer, we spend most of our afternoons and evenings outside.

On St. Patrick's Day, we had a really busy day, but a good busy day. To wind things down a bit for the babies as Daddy was inside cooking our St. Patty's day dinner, we headed outside for some playtime. It was sunny and warm and just like a summer day. I couldn't resist getting out the camera for a few play-shots.

Emma and I had ran to Toys R Us earlier in the day and she picked up this little watering can. So we tossed on one of her bathing suits and played for about two hours in the sunshine. It was perfect.

She would fill up about a half inch of water in her watering can, run over to the grass, dump it out, rinse, and repeat. She did this no less than fifty times.

The Squishy on the other hand, is a hand.full. to take outside. He LOVES to eat rocks. Yup, eat rocks. He finally got wind of Emma's pirate water table, ripped the canon off and held that for the next two hours. At least it seemed to slow down his rock eating. Ugh.

This is what happens when you give a toddler a hose, and she gets tired of Mommy taking pictures. Needless to say, I snapped this picture, and then ran for my life.

You can't have a beautiful day like this and NOT blow bubbles.

It really was the perfect day, despite being a very busy day. The kids got up at about 5:30 that morning, we blew up twenty five balloons for Squishy's birthday photo-shoot, gave the babies baths, took Squishy's birthday pictures, Mama took Emma to Toys R Us, Target and Party City. We then met Daddy and Squishy out for lunch. When we got home, the babies took their nap and I headed back out to do some printing at Kinkos. When I got home, the sunshine was calling so I cut the grass and then wrapped some presents. We spent the rest of the day outside, had some dinner and kept going strong straight until bedtime. Shew.
