spring is near…..

I whisper this in fear that I may scare it away.  We have had some gorgeous weather the past couple of weeks (coupled with some very rainy days).

Last week we went to the park for a couple of hours – we had a great time.IMG_4586 IMG_4588 We spent a lot of time on the swings trying to go “higher, higher!”

IMG_4594 Gavin proved that he has no fear and is very agile.  He went up this rope ladder with ease, over and over.  Mikayla still has a little bit of a tough time with it. IMG_4599 Mikayla is definitely my social child.  She can make friends with anybody and always has a new best friend when we go out places.IMG_4603 Gavin loves to climb up the slides.  He ran around non-stop for almost two hours, which can easily be seen by his red little cheeks.

We have also been able to spend several afternoons in our backyard.  The kids have had a great time rediscovering all of the fun stuff that they can do back there. IMG_4641 Mikayla was gathering leaves and searching through the “forest” with her walking stick.  She has such an imagination!!IMG_4643 Gavin perched at the top of the slide and all ready to go down. IMG_4653 They also had a great time playing together in the sandbox.  I love watching them play together.  They even share on occasion!  I hope that we have this mild weather for a while – I am thoroughly enjoying it!
