I had the thought earlier today to take a photo of the wintry scene but felt more depressed than inspired by the idea so I decided against it. Instead, let's reminiscence of warm March weekends past and dream of those to come in April; fingers crossed.
Earlier this month we took the kids fishing...
Last weekend we gathered around the campfire where we dined on gourmet franks, classic Lay chips and gooey toasted marshmallows.
Please note, in the bottom right photo, Eliza sporting a pair of goggles. She does this to protect her eyes from the smoke. She looks like a cute little minion.
Spring and Fall are ideal for campfire cookouts, according to Andrew. As enjoyable as it is to be stoking the fire in 90+ degree weather during the summer... just kidding. Maybe next time we'll move past hotdogs and try something a little more upscale. Perhaps we should bust out the dutch oven?! That could be fun. And tasty.
Other highlights from March include a date night out for Andrew and me. Nanna Teresa offered to spend the night so he and I could enjoy a night void of babysitter fees. It was truly a great gift. Ami and Adam joined us for dinner, which was great, but following dinner we opted to go back home (and to bed) instead of doing something else. Coming down with a cold, it was the choice that appealed to me most. I know. We're lame!
Other Fleglet tidbits include:
He makes my heart sing. In a week, he'll be eleven months old. Are we even kidding?!? His latest tricks include cruising around the furniture on his feet and using a kitchen chair as his walker.
Eliza and I enjoyed an impromptu girls night out.
Here's a miscellaneous photo of Lottie for good measure.
The happiest sight of the month might have been watching the reunion between the children and the sandbox, playhouse and giant rocks that dot our yard.
The good weather seemed to call to the chickens too, or so my kids said when I found them playing with them in the playhouse. Don't worry, I put an end to their shenanigans when I found them sending the chickens down the slide. I promise, they weren't harmed physically; probably emotionally though.
On the days when the weather wasn't as warm as we liked, we bundled up and went to the park anyway because being outside feels so good.
