Signs of Spring

Sunday afternoon was gorgeous outside! By gorgeous, of course I mean by New England's winter standards. It was about 45* and sunny. We decided to bring Devin outside to learn how to ride the scooter (finally) that Grandma and Papa bought him for Christmas. He spent about 30 minutes getting comfortable and having fun with his scooter. After that he did some sidewalk chalk. Over an hour spent outside on a New England winter day (without snow gear) without freezing your hiney off is nearly unheard of!

Fast-forward to today....ANOTHER gorgeous afternoon!!! It was again about 45* and sunny! Devin and I spent at least an hour outside scootering, observing the liveliness of the parking lot's water drain (so fun! *cough* yeah right), and then we took a walk up to the dollar store for a little bit 'o shopping.

The rest of this week's forecast includes some snow (only about an inch or two) and then back up to the 45* range (wooo hooo!). Only means one thing to me.....Spring MUST be on its way!

LOL, it's amazing how wonderful 45 can feel after a long winter stuck indoors. I'm glad you guys got to enjoy some quality outside time.
