After all of my complaining about the snow, I figured I better express my gratitude for a nice warm weekend with similar exuberance. We had a beautiful Saturday and took two walks to the park to bask in the sunshine.
Ben introduced Sasha to the baby swings at the park and she just loved them! Doesn't it just take your breath away that she's already two and she just experienced her first ride on the swings?!? We have so many firsts to enjoy with our baby girl!
Sasha liked Ben's energetic pushes on the swing, and Ben even introduced her to the swing phenomenon known in our family as the Underdog (pushing while running under the swing to give the swingee an extra fun ride). She also just enjoyed hanging out, being swayed by the breeze and watching the other kids at the park.
Walking home down our little suburban street I had to marvel at how much I love living here. Two parks within walking distance, flowering trees in bloom, the last of the snow melting in the shade, and an hour with my three favorite little people - it was a sweet afternoon indeed.
Oh, and Ben insisted that I include this picture of him looking super-cool. He donned my sunglasses and asked me to snap a shot and I requested his "coolest" pose - here it is!
