Perfect Spring Days

You know it’s finally a gorgeous spring day when the temperature hits 72 degrees, and you are able to spend pretty much the whole day outdoors. When you can plant flowers in a pretty hand painted thrifted pot…. when your most energetic boy can finally really work out some of those wiggles on the trampoline…. Well, let’s face it, they all have wiggles, and the tramp is the perfect spot to get in some exercise. I should probably get up there, but I’m not convinced I would be able to move the next day. When it’s warm enough that they all have rosy cheeks, and are just about completely covered in layers of dirt, which makes the perfect time for a mango strawberry milkshake (just frozen mangoes and strawberries blended up with some milk). What a gorgeous day it was. By the time we came in and got them all cleaned up with hot baths and warm food, their little heads hit the pillows and they were out. I am so ready for all of our days to be like this, though of course, it’s supposed to snow again on Friday.

    Was it really that warm! We’ve had rain,sleet and hail here and there has been snow up north. I’m glad your children had fun, I remember days like that when mine were small. Love the flower pot. x

    I can’t wait for the days to be warm enough to be able to stay out all day…

    Plus you’ve made me want to jump on a trampoline now!

  4. I want that milkshake. And here I am in a house without mangoes or strawberries. Bah.

    Wasn’t it lovely!? We had 80 degrees on Tuesday and then a bit cooler yesterday. We’re on the lookout for brisk weather tomorrow but things are really starting to warm up overall around here and I couldn’t be more thrilled. We’ve spent much of our week outside and in the yard. I don’t mind one bit the extra dirt that gets tracked in or the extra scrubbing at bath time. 🙂 I’m ready for it! Glad you guys have had some nice weather to enjoy too.

    Chilly and grey here, 72 degrees would be wonderful! Bouncing looks like fun but could be a step too far for my pelvic floor!x

    You first boy had me in stitches. I could truly see the cooped up energy flying through his veins. Very funny. Happy pics. Thanks for sharing.

    I am so jealous of your springy-ness. It looks like winter here. Love the jumpers. Mine are begging for the tramp to be set up, not till winter is over. Ugh!

  9. I think I need that milkshake.
    Love this space you’ve created!
