sunny days


We are not much of a Super Bowl family.  In fact, I don't even think I saw a single play on Sunday.  Instead we took advantage of our beautiful 70 degree weather and headed outdoors to do a little yard work and watch the grand kids play.

I am always amazed at how easily they can entertain themselves outside.  They took turns spying out ants and squirting them to death with a little plastic squirt bottle.

I love the intensity on Emily's face here.  I don't know exactly what she saw but she sure was focused on it.

And little people feet in flip-flops?  Adorable...

Any outdoor questions are best taken to the one who knows everything...grandpa.

I wish we could just capture days like this in a bottle to pull out when the skies of life turn grey.

Given the clouds we've had the last few days and the promise of rain on Friday, I am so glad we headed outside.  There will be another Super Bowl but who knows how many days like this we'll have.  Given the choice, I would much rather watch my grand kids exploring on a sunny day anytime.

  1. It was so gorgeous that day. Your yard is looking good back there. You just need a coop.

  2. Isn't it just amazing to see things as children see them? They see things so simple and entertaining. And I love those little precious feet in flip flops!! (I still call them thongs and my older grandchildren just shriek!!).


  3. Amazing how kids can just entertain themselves! Kids look so sweet! Love your gorgeous yard!!! Looks like you have a green thumb!

  4. I think that is much better than watching an old football game....just precious, precious!

  13. I have to agree with you.. It's days like this that make everything we go through in life worth it.. I would have skipped the superbowl as well.. Times like these are priceless.
