Spring Tease

Amidst moving, Eli and I popped over to Arizona to surprise my mom for the 20th anniversary of her 30th birthday a few weeks ago. 

My Dad also surprised her by renting her dream car for her to drive for a couple of weeks. I'm not sure who loved it more though, her or Eli. 

Before you go reporting me to the authorities, the car is in the driveway. He sure did love "driving" it though and knew exactly what to do: turn the wheel and look around.  

We stayed extra long and soaked up some much needed warmth, sunshine and family time. 

As refreshing as it was being home and getting to be outside all day, every day, it was too much of a tease for us as we came back to frigid temps and chilly winds. 

Spring, can you make your way out to the northeast already please???

I'm ready to for days at the playground. 

And letting Eli out to play in our new backyard. He discovered the wonders of rocks and dirt in the desert. At first he wasn't quite sure what to do with them; he just stared at them and pointed. He soon learned though that dirt is fun and rocks make cool noises when you throw them on the ground. 

He also learned how to clean up the messes that rocks and dirt make. 

I am convinced that mothers who live in warm places get more stuff done and have happier kids. 

I am also convinced that Arizona has the prettiest sky--sunrise to sunset the colors are amazing. 

We finally had two days of Spring Friday and Saturday which meant that Eli and I were outside, which meant that Eli was pretty much in heaven. 

Unfortunately those two days were a tease as well as this week brings back the 30s and 40s with possible snow. SNOW! At the end of March and a week into Spring. Ugh.  

Here's to more inside adventures this week with a little boy who just wants to be outside all day. 

Lord help us or we may just lose our minds!
