Welcome sun...

It's been two and a half weeks since I've even looked at this space. I've thought about it occasionally but there have been so many things keeping us busy that I let the thoughts drift on by. What a beautiful late May it's been around here. Absolutely gorgeous, near perfect weather. We have spent more time outside these past two weeks than the entire first part of the year combined I believe.

There's been a lot of sliding, digging holes in the dirt, bike riding, and especially playing in water. I'm not sure there's anything better than a couple containers of water and lots of little cups and bottles to fill up and dump out again and again.

Ian realized early on that he could make a pretty mean mud hole and send his Lego guy swimming in it (with the sharks and crocodiles no less!).

And Sawyer, never one to be left out, continues to wow us with his ability to get completely dirty within minutes of wandering outside. And it always, always, shows up on his face first.

There's also been a lot of cooking and a lot of sewing going on around here (really... I can't believe how much having a sewing space helps). If this is a preview of summer... it's going to be a really great couple of months.

It sounds like a perfect couple of weeks to me Andrea. What sweet little guys. I remember when my grown up sons were that age - such a precious time.
Enjoy these days. I can't think of anything more important - or fun!

I don't envy you the clean up, but what fun mud can be! LOL :D Glad to hear you are enjoying the spring.

Please refrain from further comments about your beautiful weather. I enjoy your blog, but that is too depressing for me to read. Just kidding, glad the boys seem to be having a blast. Love, Grandpa. (P.S) In case you didn't know, our May has been terrible, with lots of rain, wind and cold.
