As I've made quite clear... it was a long stinking winter.
Spring proved to be a bit better, but I'm welcoming summer with open arms.
I love these long outside days, fun filled with water, gardens, suntans, sand boxes and late sunsets.
We inaugurated the season today with a trip to our local splash pad.
The kids loved it- both of them! Crazy to think that this time last year, Caters was a peanut who couldn't even crawl! Man, how things change. This year, she's the hard one. Corban was excellent while we were there. Cate was occupied initially by the water, but then turned her attention to the many diaper bags and shoes laying around... such a girl.
It was good, though.
I remember dreaming and longing for these sort of days just a few short months ago. It seemed like a glorious event that would never occur- but at long last, it's here. And we're all glad.
