Warm and Bright


It was nearly 80 degree’s here today. When we got up this morning it was very cloudy and there was a slight chill in the air, but by 9:30am the clouds had moved out and the sun was shining warm and bright.

Harper and I had a few things to pick up at Target, but the rest of the day was free to play outside in the lovely weather.

We did the usual, jumping on the trampoline, sliding on the slide, and drawing with the sidewalk chalk. He ate a little picnic lunch out on the deck and then took a long 2 1/2 hour nap. The sun does that to him.


Before dinner, we were outside watching Landon play basketball and football with some of the neighborhood kids. I brought Harper’s little red car outside so he could try moving it on his own, but he hasn’t quite figured it out yet.



After dinner it was still light enough to go outside for a bit, so we all congregated on the front stoop for popsicles. Harper had just had a diaper change and it was pretty warm out so we let him go outside sans pants. He loved it!


Even Zoe came out to join us! She was busy doing homework but wanted to take advantage of the weather too.


Landon showed me lots and lots of tricks he could do with the basketball and even challenged me to a game of pig (in which I beat him and then he changed it to horse and I still beat him! :)).


Ginger always wants to join us when we’re outside too, so she sniffed around the front yard and grabbed the bits of popsicle that fell and just kinda hung around my feet like she does in the house.


Looks like we’ll be having another gorgeous weather day tomorrow! I’m really looking forward to it! Happy Tuesday!

Water Balloons

When my kids told me they didn't know what to do with themselves yesterday I suggested they go outside and play with the water balloons....
