Checking my Calendar!

Today was the 10th of February....
But... It was 60 degrees!!!!!
We just had 10 straight days of -0..... yes... 10 days where it was below zero.... and a week later... almost 60????? Tomorrow... 56 degrees?????
What???? and Sunshine???
What is going on around here???
2 years ago... we had 14 whole minutes of sunshine during December, January, and 1/2 of February.... Now... we are having Sunny days and 60 degree weather!
It's not hanging around though.... by the weekend we are going to have some more snow...
After all... we have at least 2 more months of winter... but... since it was so nice out...
I HAD to get the kids out... so, got into their snow boots...and to the playground we went!!!!!!
I told them they could get as muddy and as wet as they wanted... cuz I know when I was a kid... that was sooo much fun! It was a badge of honor to walk off the soccer field completely covered in mud, grass, and what ever else one could get into... I remember haveing to lie on garbage bags to get home and to have to strip down to walk into the house cuz I was soo muddy....

The kids splashed and such...but they didnt really get into it... I have a feeling they will though! Least I hope so! That's all part of the fun of childhood!



Diggin with Sticks.... cuz we dont want our hands dirty....

F is Thrilled to be swinging!

E who's boot was sucked into the mud!



Even our little lady got into the muddy action....


Thrilled to be outside and getting dirty!!!!!

We are in IN and having the same weather. It gets me in the mood for some spring/summer clothing shopping for the kids, of course!
Last spring we didn't have our yard in yet and Logan got MUDDY on many occasions where we had to spray him down with the hose!

We were at the playground for over 2 hours today enjoying the mild weather here. Gotta get out while you can, especially mid-Feb!
