Fresh Air

St. Patty's Day brought unseasonably warm temps and a gorgeous sunny day. We spent about an hour and a half running around the local playground with Aunt Laura and some friends, despite Eli's grouchy mood from receiving his final HiB vaccine earlier that day. He perked up considerably after experiencing the thrill of the swings once again, however, and was soon running around, climbing up and over things and going down the slides (with a little help.) It's so crazy to think that last summer he couldn't even WALK and my main concern was keeping him from eating little pebbles and getting stepped on by the big kids.





We ran around outside the night before that, too, playing soccer for about an hour and forcing poor, cooped up Fonzie to perform many repetitions of the "jump in the air and grab the stick from our hand" trick. It was so, so, SO great to be outdoors again, and for it to still be light out after dinner! I feel like I survived this winter without going TOO nuts, but man am I happy that it's over! KNOCK ON WOOD.

It HAS been really great out lately. I've been sending Zachariah out back at least once a day to run around for a little bit. It helps right before naptime, because he'll lay down easier then.

Great photos too!
