(what these pictures don't show-- the bazillion other kids who were also outside playing at the playground or riding their bikes, etc. Everyone's coming out of hibernation)

seize the sunshine
People say that living in a climate like this one makes you appreciate warm weather that much more. Honestly, I'm not sure how true that is-- I really appreciated our near-perfect weather in California, too. HOWEVER, what IS true is that in CA you know you'll have many days of amazing weather so if you let a few slip by without spending time outside it's not that big a deal. Here, I definitely feel much more of an urgency to sieze the sunshine and get out when it's nice. And so, we spent much of the past 2 afternoons outside, enjoying the sunshine and that incredible feeling of being able to step outside without a jacket and not immediately freeze to death.
