Ahhh, Spring

Yet another beautiful day today...makes the roller coasters of temps and weather a lot more bearable when you have days like today scattered in there more often. The boys and I went outside this afternoon and it was really so very nice. We all pretty much stayed right there together...sidewalk chalk, bubbles, and the most fun of all - digging for worms out of the flower bed. Here are some pictures and a little film of Avery and the worms - he loves creepy crawlies of any kind - he will be my no fear outside adventurer I think. Maybe he will give Bear Grylls on Man vs. Wild a run for his money - or maybe not...

Disclaimer **no worms were injured in the filming of this movie - although it seems like Avery is about to stretch the life out of one as I stop the camera, be assured the worm was saved in the last and is now living happily in the dirt once again**

And yes, Avery and Huston are playing in their pajamas in the middle of the afternoon...they had no where to go this morning (a sitter came to watch them as Isaiah and I went out to a play date) so they had a pajama day - and let me just tell you that those jammies had never seen the level of dirt that they ended up acquiring today...but who will ever notice after a good cycle in the laundry, right?

The dirt adventures....


The prizes that awaited....


Sitting and visiting....


Sidewalk chalk....



Bubbles....


Almost makes you wish everyday was a spring day huh - but then we wouldn't appreciate the magic of them would we. What fickle people we are! :-)

Great pictures! Our boys did some of the same activities yesterday, but I didn't take any pictures...its a miracle! Dillon loves sidewalk chalk and Austin loves mud!

Nice goggles and shirt Isaiah - although I'm not sure which of his uncles gave him this one, they both were pretty similar.
