Spring Time in Winter


The past two days we have been having lovely spring weather. Temperatures around 62 to 65 degrees all day. I am loving this weather and wish it would stay around forever. But I know winter will peek its head out again soon. So the past two days we have been taking advantage of this spring weather and hitting the parks.

The best thing about where we live is there is tons of great parks 15 minutes from our house. We have been mainly sticking to two parks lately because one has a huge track Virginia loves riding her scooter around. Also this park has a huge football field that allows Virginia and her friends to kick her soccer ball back and forth.

It just amazes me how much she has grown over the years. I have gone from having to help her with everything on the play ground to her just running and playing free without my assistant. Today she climbed up this huge ladder arch all by herself. There was a 2nd grader behind her helping just to make sure she didn't fall. But I was so proud of her. Earlier she was afraid to try it, but I guess the desire to prove to the 2nd grade girl that she wasn't a baby helped to push her along. She was so excited at her accomplishment. It showed me my baby is growing up and that I have to let her explore and try new things and not hover so much around her. 

Thrilled to see that this wonderful weather should be sticking around all weekend long. So we will be park bound each day hopefully. Before Winter decided to show his head again.
