“For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land;" ~ Song of Solomon 2:12

I know that it's not quite spring yet--and I'm probably jinxing us into a giant March snowstorm--but didn't yesterday's sunshine feel so good? (Unless you live somewhere that was lacking sunshine yesterday, then I apologize for being a braggy jerk.)

We were all in heaven.

We opened up the sandbox, a plaything with which I have a serious love hate relationship. The kids love it and can play for hours, but the SAND. Why is sand so messy? And why does Tommy always have so much of it in his pants?


The best part is knowing that even if I jinxed us into a snowstorm or even if the next two weeks are rainy, we are going to have more and more days like this. Yes, knowing that put just a little spring in our step.

I know- it's like a promise of what is on the way. And I am loving the sun peeking out today!

Love the pictures. Yesterday was amazing. . .and would you believe it's supposed to be 76 Wednesday?!?! I'd almost call that hot! Love your sand box. I want one for Nate. Did you build or buy it?

You couldn't be a braggy jerk if you tried. I hope your spring comes soon :)

This is beautiful. Being able to open up the sandbox in early March is the best/worst thing ever.

Yes! SPRING! I am in Colorado, but we are getting a taste of spring right now, too. I know we will pay for it with more snow, but this week of flip flops and sandboxes and sunblock and sidewalk chalk will totally give me the strength to survive the rest of winter! And so true about the sand. Why does it have to get EVERYWHERE?!
