Spring Breaking

To-do lists were long.  Tempers were short.  Spring break was dwindling.

The burdens of house-keeping and home-ownership were heavy, and the frustrations of parenting (x5) were mounting.

So we did the only sensible thing.

In a matter of minutes, we loaded everyone up and left it all behind.

First stop: the airport, to watch the crop duster land. 
 Then...
 picnicking,


 swinging,

 running, 

 reading,

kite flying,

 frog watching,

 more reading,

 jumping rope,


 ball chasing,

 pine cone exploring,

 and cookie sharing.

And after that, things were much, much better.

Life is good!

(Mr. Daniel slept through the whole adventure, which may have just been the best thing for all concerned!)

Whoever made that executive decision is one smart cookie! What a fun-filled afternoon it must have been. Just show Daniel the pictures. ;)

Monday we did the same thing and went to the beach (less than a mile from our house). You sort of *have to* when the sun comes out here in the Pacific Northwest. "Stop everything! Great big warming ball of light is outside! Everyone OUTSIDE!!!" I am so ready for spring already.
