fun in the sun
How is it already spring?! It’s hard to believe that just a few weeks ago we had a snow storm, and then an ice storm, and then freezing rain. Crazy NC weather. It still hasn’t landed on consistent spring weather here but we sure have had a few nice weekends in a row. I’ll take freezing rain and thunderstorms all week and then a nice weekend, any day.
Keeping the kids occupied has been interesting with all this inclement weather – maybe something we did will inspire you to have some fun with your kiddos as spring sneaks up on us!
A few weeks ago, when we got crazy snow here, I decided to let the kids go out side and play in the snow while they waited for daddy to come home… Before I could even get out the door, Job had already done a full belly flop in the snow. I guess my ideas of just looking at the snow and maybe making a few “ice balls” (Job’s word for snowballs) was long gone. We ended up doing a full wardrobe change once we came in but some good times were had by all.
LOOK AT THOSE CHEEKS!!! I could kiss them all day!
And here we are just a few weeks later….
…helping daddy wash the cars.
Roo was supervising all the car washing! And don’t forget the kids cars. As you can see he is “detailing” it. He likes to have things nice and clean.
The following weekend was in the 70′s. I decided to let the kids play with water, bubbles, shaving cream, and Roos favorite- ice cubes.
I just filled some random disposable tins I had lying around and fill them up with some fun. I added a little food coloring to both the bubble water and the shaving cream. They loved it, to say the least.
They had an absolute blast out there. I think they would stay outside all day, everyday if I let them. Yay for nice crisp, warm days. We will enjoy the spring weather before the humidity of death comes.
