What little kid really wants to stay indoors all day? In true midwest fashion, we had April Showers (and even April Snow Showers!), which really put a damper on Spring. As a family who spends most of our time playing outside…being cooped up indoors is no fun!
With a glimmer of sunshine today after Charli’s school, we put on some fun dresses and twirled around outside. The girls are in love with dressing up at home, and often want to go on walks wearing their princess dresses.
We took a little trip outside and played in the grass for a bit, so of course I had to take some photos!
The air was crisp, but the sun sure did feel good on us. This weekend, we are hoping to get high 60’s, but I’m afraid there might be some rain accompanying it.
I couldn’t resist getting the girls these fun, flirty dresses. They come in a bunch of colors and they are staples in their spring/summer wardrobe. We had some when they were younger, and they wore them all of the time!
This weekend we are putting up a gazebo on our deck. This means lots more nights outside, more BBQ’s, and more parties! We will be gearing up for the summer the right way: being outdoors more and playing on the (shaded) deck!
Even if you too are cooped up indoors for half of the year like we are, let’s make the most of it and get outside for a nice walk together, or quick dancing/twirling session in the backyard. Your heart and mind will thank you for it.
Just think, in just a few weeks, it will be Memorial Day, and we will be in our swimsuits, enjoying the start of summer break! Once the sun comes out, we will not even remember this long winter/spring we had!
What do you have planned for the summer? We can’t wait to go swimming and pick strawberries!
