Our 1st Spring Trip to the Park

As tradition has dictated, on one of the first nice weekends of the year, we like to take the boys to the park to play.  The first weekend in March gave us some lovely Spring weather, and the boys enjoyed getting to wear their shorts and t-shirts outside.

Brody is such a big boy now at the park!

Loving that sweet smile, but the little red scar on his cheek from his recent fall makes me a little sad.

My cool kid

And sliding is more fun with a daddy to catch you.

Crossing the shaky bridge very carefully.

Evan wanted to ride this little motorcycle that he used to ride as a toddler.

He loves the slides!

The purple dinosaur picture is always a must.

He still loves it.  I think one day I will have a whole wall of pictures of all the pictures of them on this purple T-Rex.  Ha!

Had to get one together.

Yes, Evan thinks he is so cool in his shades!

We tried to get one of all of us, but the boys would not cooperate.

Then it was Brody's turn to swing. 

After this short reprieve from the very long winter, we experienced many more rainy and cold days.  Today is another nice warm day, and we hope the weekend will be equally nice.  However, apparently our forecast is calling for this next week:

Yuck Yuck Yuck!  The article says we haven't had weather like this at this time of year since 1983!  


  1. We've enjoyed some nice weather too...just wish it would stay this way.

    1. Yes, I am ready for Spring to come to stay!

  2. How much fun! Evan looks so handsome in his sunglasses. I love the way the sunshine makes his hair look so red! Brody looks like he had such a good time. He looks like he is getting tall! We've enjoyed a lot of park time recently too. We are also in for another round of cold. Boo!

    1. I do love they way his hair shines in the sun! Boo to the cold! Luckily, the snow and ice missed us this time so we just got more yucky cold rain!

  3. I can't believe you've already been able to wear shorts and t-shirts! We've been all excited that we've been able to break out the Spring jackets! Ha! Is there a house for sale near you because I want to move there!!! Also, my kids always cooperate for pictures ;)

    1. Or as my post actually said "shirts and t-shirts"! Haha! It is correct now. Thanks for understanding what my addled brain was trying to say. ;-) You are welcome to move here any time of course!

  4. I love, love, love that I have been reading your blog long enough that I know that purple T-Rex! And I totally think you should do a purple t-rex photo wall! Or at least a shutterfly book. Ha ha!

    Glad you got to get out in shorts and t's and enjoy the park a little. We are right on the cusp of it getting too hot to do such thing.

    1. Yes, the purple T-Rex is a very important part of my kids' childhood! ;-)

  5. Love love the warmer weather.... thanks for sharing your family fun!
