We've been waiting...
We've been waiting over six months for this. A whole day of sunshine, blue skies, and t-shirt warm weather. Today was 63º and sunny. Perfect for being OUTSIDE!!
Our friends joined us today for a farm outing - we all packed into our van and headed out to a friends farm for a visit.
The boys got to see the new little chicks and hold them. Verrrry exciting.
They threw sticks for the dogs, and visited the hen house to see if there were any fresh eggs.
We were able to see bees in a box who were getting ready to go into their new hive home. And, they tried on the bee hat/netting and gloves. Can't beat that.
The day was so full of being outside - casting practice, visiting the farm, playing at a park, blowing bubbles, working in the garden, reading books in the sunshine. Tonight, two exhausted boys climbed out of the bathtub, barely able to keep their eyes open. As he was putting on his pajamas, A sighed and said, "I wish every day was like today." Thank you, spring (and Jessie!).
