Warmer Weather

Spring doesn't arrive until next month, but we've had some nice weather lately. To clarify, that's over 50 degrees, in case our New York readers are thinking "Wow - it's been over 30!" or our Texas readers are thinking "Wow - it's been over 80!" "Warmer" is a relative term.

We've been venturing outside more and rediscovering our "outside" toys. Yesterday, the girls rode their crocodile. Last summer, they couldn't ride together without help because Emma was too light and Hannah didn't know how to compensate for that. Yesterday, Emma almost went flying head first over the handlebars twice, then they seemed to figure it out.

Last week, Ryan and the girls drew with sidewalk chalk. He traced both girls then they colored themselves in. Their drawings survived a morning's drizzle, so we took some pictures.

Here's Emma:

And Hannah:

Last week, Hannah had mid-winter break and Ryan's sister Kristin and her daughter Grace were visiting from Texas, so we did some fun things. I'll get those pictures and stories on here soon.
