Thanks for the Sunshine

Dear Weather,

I would like to inform you that your payment of spring is overdue. Due to snow storms and other spring atrocities, we are hereby billing you thirty days of continual sunshiny days with gentle breezes (small spring showers are also acceptable).


Rachel and Nancy

At least yesterday was nice. And today wasn't terrible, either, except it was too windy to walk all the way to the library. Rachel likes the wind, but after its been blowing on her face for 10 minutes she gets a little cranky. This wasn't just any wind, either. It was "knock the stroller over" wind.

But yesterday was nice. It was warm and sunny enough to go outside without sweaters on, which was a great diversion from Rachel's teething woes. Ice just gets old after a while.

Yummy ice! (Notice the tear running down her cheek. Sad baby.)

We went on a nice walk around the neighbourhood, delivering fliers for primary, and then played at the park for a little while.

Eventually we made our way over to a little "push and ride" toy, which Rachel loved, although she had a little trouble staying focused on walking and kept mucking with the wheels and stopping to pick up grass and rocks and trying to touch the steering wheel. I suppose exploration is simply what childhood is about.

  1. She is so sweet! PS stop complaining about the weather, I look outside, it's snowing right now and there's half a foot of snow on the ground. :)
