After snow on the weekend the bright warm sun was sure a welcome sight. We couldn't get enough of it and spent the day out soaking up the rays.
However before all the fun could get started we had to make an outing.
By the time we got home Dave was waiting. Off early and ready to hang outdoors in the sun.
They splashed with water balloons.
Rode bikes and scooters.
And ran through bubbles.
Between shots I ran in and cleaned. I didn't want to miss out on the fun with daddy but the opportunity to catch a few minutes sans kids to get the dishwasher loaded was pretty tempting too. I ran back and forth and back and forth and I am sure burned a zillion calories.
After getting the dishes loaded and burgers prepped for the BBQ I took a small break and sat. And discovered my knitting. Tampered with! This is the third time. The other time they unraveled about 12 rows of striped something. I hadn't decided yet if it was to be a scarf or hat. Doesn't matter now. Guess I should learn to put it up out of reach of little helpers!
Back outside in the evening light. It was still warm but the wind had picked up. Perfect for kite flying. Kaitlyn's potty treat of the day...a pooh bear kite.
Daddy got her started.
She took it from there and didn't look back.
Ethan and I watched.
He tried holding the string for a few minutes and then let go. Next year.
So much fun!
After watching Dave and Kaitlyn run around till they were out of breath we headed home via 7 11.
This was when I realized Kaitlyn had been wearing two different shoes the whole time. Oops!
Back home and with the kids in bed I was inspired to create. Seems after a good dose of fresh air the way to end the night was with a brush in hand.
