A Spring day in the middle of Winter

God gave us a gift today!  We had a 68 degree day on January 30th.  Not that this is all that uncommon, we usually get a few warmer days during the winter, but it was soooooo welcome!  I don't know what has happened to us this winter, but we seem to have caved into the blah weather and curled up into ourselves.  Today, we came out and stretched our wings.

Leaving for church this morning I bundled Brant up into his coat, zipped and hooded.  Heading for his mittens, Brant looked at me and said, "Hey Mommy, it looks warm outside!"  Explaining how sunny in the winter doesn't mean warm, we walked out.  And then back in to put away coats!  Glorious glorious warmth!

Returning from church we shed our winter clothes, searched out our Keens, threw on jeans and headed straight out.  We played hard, cleaned up the yard, and drew with sidewalk chalk.  When big Brantley got home from work, he joined in the fun and our neighbors emerged for an impromptu Cornhole tournament and cookout.

No photos to accompany this post, we were too busy enjoying ourselves and to be honest, I didn't even want to come in to get the camera.

All I can say is OUR family is ready for Spring!  Bring it!
