Okay, I know we in South Louisiana don't have a lot to complain about in terms of frightful winter weather, but it seemed that we had a little more "severe" cold, than we're used to in these parts. Add to that our rains of biblical proportions, and you get a perfect recipe for stir-crazed moms and toddlers chomping at the bit to get out and go somewhere other than Wal-Mart or church.
With the weather warming up to lovely comfortable temps, the parks are teaming with happy children and delighted parents - all seemingly grateful for very simple pleaures....crunchy grass, messy mulch, yummy acorns (yeah, she still thinks she's a squirrel).
Last week, we had an impromtu gathering at one of our neighborhood parks. It was like zoo animals were freed into their natural habitat!
(or Cake - as Gianna refers to her):
...who happened to be singing, "How Great is Our God" at the TOP of her lungs!
Reese and Gianna - peeping out of the portholes.
Welcome, Spring. We're glad you're here.
