slush can be beautiful

You'd think it was 65 degrees outside....me, Daniel, Jonathan this afternoon outside in the sun.

It was more like 45, 50, but we had to get out there and breathe. Daniel grabbed handfuls of slush and shaped them into different objects; Jonny played in puddles and pushed things down the driveway just to watch them crash.

I lifted my head and closed my eyes and let the sun warm my face.

It's coming, it really is. Spring. Hope. Life.

It's in the high 40's here as well, and I'm enjoying it. The boys can't wait to be able to play outside again, and neither can mommy :P

It's just not spring unless there's muddy jeans and shoes! I pray for your safe passage during this last leg of the fourth pregnancy - I think you're a beautiful Momma!
