Hooray for Spring!

I have hardly been bothered by the fact that it has been rainy and gloomy here today because for the past two days we have been enjoying unseasonably warm and beautiful weather. Sixty degrees and sunny is always happily welcomed in the middle of March in Minnesota!
Yesterday, after running a few morning errands, the kids hopped on their bikes... and we headed up the street to our neighborhood park. It is always fun to see how much the kids have grown over the long winter months and that growth was clearly evidenced yesterday by their ability to easily maneuver around all the park equipment. Allie was all monkey, climbing and swinging on everything without fear.
Last year, we were still following Zach around most of the equipment because he was still a little wobbly and we were fearful of him falling off. Not so yesterday. He was able to climb up and down with complete ease and always ran for the same slide over and over again.

Allie and Zach also discovered the joys of venturing down the slide together.We spent well over an hour at the park where both kids sufficiently tired themselves out and needless to say, we all enjoyed uncharacteristically long naps. Here's hoping for more beautiful Spring days in the near future!
