Returning to Normalcy and a Car Wash

Hello all! It's been a fabulous week of fun, fun, and more fun! We played A LOT, and didn't get much done around the house, hurray! My nieces, Allison and Madison each got to stay the night with us. Ian and Laurel loved hanging out with them, getting and giving lots of attention. I'm really glad those two crazy girls visited us. They reminded me of the importance play has in our lives. We turned a wagon into a train, built sand cities and became Godzilla to trample our own sandy creations, completed several puzzles, panned for gold, colored, played games, read books, told stories, and giggled ourselves silly.

The average high this week was around 95 degrees Fahrenheit, 99 DEGREES on Friday! It's only mid-March, SCARY, what's the summer going to be like?

Today, Ian and Paul got Paul's car washed. As they left the car wash, Paul opened the sun roof to see if any wax remained on the window. As the sun roof opened, Ian looked up and touched it. Happily, he chirped, "Daddy, I am touching the sky!"

"touching the sky", that's soooo awesome to hear! I love the innocence in them!

So glad to hear that you go no housework done and had a blast being Godzilla! (plus all the other fun stuff) I need to take a few tips from you and just let loose one of these days!

Welcome back!

I got to enjoy your 99 degree weather while I was out on a business trip. I have to say it was very welcome after the frigid weather we've had in upstate NY these last couple weeks.

I also wonder if your summer is going to be extra hot!
