Glorious Sun

With the forecast calling for 2-5 inches of snow starting tomorrow, I need to focus my energy on remembering how GORGEOUS it was this past weekend.

And lucky for us we were gathered in Viroqua with the whole fam to enjoy it.

My dad capitalized on the extra manpower and put us all to work doing some yard-work, and I don't think anyone actually even cared because the sun was shining for the first time in what seems like 6 months, and the kids were ecstatic to be outside.

These three were happy as could be running around, going down the slide and spending lots of time (per Tillie's insistence) on the seesaw.

Which she only enjoyed a little bit....

 I LOVE seeing the three of them together, playing. Tillie is absolutely without a doubt obsessed with Leo, and I think has been dreaming about him every night since we left because she wakes up saying "LEO!"

Bea even got some quality outdoors time with Grandma!

All I know is that this family is desperate for good weather and warm temps to be here for good for a while. Not just because Ms. Matilda sleeps like a log after running around all day in the fresh air.....

I guess nothing really changes, kids come home - work the yard, sort of like picking rock on the farm. Looks like there could be some good milk in those piles of grass.

Thank goodness we don't have rock in our yard. A little manual labor is good for everyone, and as Uncle Todd says....if you don't have skills you are labor! A great job done, and now we are waiting for more sunshine! Mom
