What a great day today

So, the weather was really warm today.  Just a few days ago we were buried in snow and it was freezing cold.  Today was almost like spring.  We took a walk hoping to wear the kids out a bit, but as you can see, they hitched a ride with dad.  Joe and Paul had a little batting practice when we got back.  Andrew did laps around the car, one of his favorite things to do while dragging his hands along the car and getting absolutely filthy!  Then he tried his new tricycle.  Still working on the pedaling, but he likes riding while pushing it around with his feet. 

By the way, those are socks Andrew’s holding onto.  He’s obsessed with holding socks.  It started after we took the bink away.  If you take the socks out of his hands he shuts down completely.  You put the socks back in his hands it’s like plugging him in and he’s off again.  Bizarre, I know.  He has started putting them down a little lately.  But he always knows where they are and always goes back for them.  It’s a start though. 

Anyway, it was a really nice time outside.  Unfortunately, I wasted a good part of the rest of my day on facebook.  I was looking at everyone’s pictures and got carried away.  It was fun, but I’m feeling a little lame about how much time I spent on the computer today.  I need to get a life I think.

    It was a gorgeous day yesterday. It was fun to see everyone in the neighborhood outside. My husband went and finally bought our preschooler his promised bike and then they rode it around and we sat outside talking to neighbors.

    It looks like your family had a lot of fun too. Is Andrew’s trike a kettrike? I feel like I remember it from when we were tricycle shopping.

    I also love the skateboard and wagon picture. That made me laugh.

    Have a great Monday!

    We’ve been having gorgeous weather here too! I’m ready for spring!!

    Andrew looks so cute on his trike. That’s funny about the socks…Jessica does the same thing, obsesses about carrying a certain object around (it changes every few days). Unfortunately she doesn’t “shut down” when we take it away, she just throws a big ole’ hissy fit 🙂

    To answer your question about the books, Jess used to destroy all her books. We’d always get the thickest board books we could find -and she’d still eventually manage to tear them up. She seems to have outgrown the need to tear them up though…so there’s hope!! :0)
