Here comes the sun.

We've had a streak of warm weather for the last several days. Very welcome after the streak of cold that lasted more than a month. After yesterday's rains, the kids couldn't wait to get out into the warm sunshine this morning. (Just look at those beautiful blue skies!)

And wear some mama-knits with no overcoat!

We spent much time out in the sun, soaking up as much as we could.

Trying to replenish our vitamin D stores the natural way. :)

And Paulie tried to teach his little brother how to ride the new Skuut bike he received for his birthday.


And when we were all tuckered out, we returned inside for a relaxing afternoon.

As for me, I spent some time with this skein of funky wool while watching the kiddos outside and basking in the sun.


  1. Isn't it the best? JH had to get tubes today, and we were out at the park an hour after he got home because we couldn't NOT be there!

  2. Even as a non-knitter that yarn is delicious! Glad you all are getting a sunshine fix!

  3. We were feeling the richness of the sun yesterday and today we are having heavy snow once again. It was a lovely break! I love your photos and descriptions of wearing mama knits and no overcoat : ) I can't wait to see what you create with that fun yarn!

  4. Oh the sun IS a welcome treat isn't it? Looks like you all are having a lot of fun. :)

  5. send some of that sun our way! i think we've had rain for a solid month. Love their beautiful sweaters.

  6. We enjoyed that break in the clouds too! I love that sweater your little one is wearing.

  7. I love days when it feels the sun hasn't been out in so long and then it appears! It is so perfect!

  8. The sun feels so wonderful after it's been missing awhile! We enjoyed a sunny day in the 60's yesterday to.


I love to hear what you think!
