It's going to be an interesting summer

After weeks of cold and rain we had a glorious weather weekend with temps hitting mid-80s on Saturday. We spent a LOT of time outside - doing things like this...


Top photo is Jackson, bottom is Peyton - one way or another they wanted to get those motorcycles up so they could ride them down. (Don't worry, like any good Mommy I told them no ... after I got a picture:)

This is Peyton, though I saw Jackson attempt the same stunt at Grandma & Granddad's the next day.

Opening day


(Click on the image to get a better look at our MVPs)
I hesitate to complain about the weather because my parents are still dealing with snow in Wisconsin, but it has been cold and crummy ever since the official first day of spring. Yesterday was opening day for the White Sox and even though they weren't playing in Chicago those of us excited about the first pitch got to look out the window to enjoy rain, snow, sleet and hail at different times throughout the day. None of it stuck around, but we are more than ready for good weather. Every time we pass a park the boys say "I wish it was warm and you would take me to the park."
I always feel like opening day is the real start of spring so here's hoping it looks up from here. With two games and two White Sox winners we're off to a good start!
