The Cure for Cabin Fever

We have reached that part of winter where the weather is just getting old.  We need sun and warmth and fresh air!  We are all starting to feel cooped up indoors.

Today, Dylan had his Valentine's Day party at school.  I was one of the parents in charge of the party.  I had high hopes to take pictures of the festivities, but wrangling a classroom full of excited 2nd graders at the end of the day is HARD work!

Dylan had a great time and was thrilled that I was there, so that's all that matters. A picture of him, after the party, with his Valentine's Day box filled with treats is the only documentation we have.

Dylan was allowed to leave school with me, which meant he was able to leave a half hour early.  On the way to pick up his sisters, he suggested a trip to the park.  I agreed that it was a good idea!

So off we went, despite the gray sky and 30 degree weather.

The kids just wanted...and needed...to run and play!  And despite a small incident of Lexie falling down a dirt pile, they had a great time!

They happily played until the sky opened up and dropped gigantic snowflakes on our heads.

A trip to the park was just what they needed!

Come on, Spring!  We're ready for you!
