Sunny Days

This weather is just amazing. My youngest seems to think that it is warm enough to sunbathe in the stream of sunlight hitting our family room floor. She had on her sunglasses, her clothes (thankfully) and even got a wet towel because her forehead was getting "sweaty". I think she is giving me the right idea that I should take a moment to sit outside to soak up some sun. Also, if you do go to Rita's Water Ice for free water ice on the first day of Spring (this Saturday) be ready to stand in some lines. We ended up waiting a half hour for water ice on opening day, but it was worth it.

Spring Forward

With time moving forward an hour maybe my kids will finally sleep in until 7AM. They are such early risers at times and I refuse to get out of bed before 7.

There is a spring to my step today as the sun is out and the snow is melting. Grass is poking out once again and the temperatures will be in the 50s this weekend. To celebrate I plan to take the kids out for water ice. Rita's opens today and that is reason enough to visit. Make sure you visit Rita's on the first day of Spring too for your free water ice.
