And on May 6, when the 9:00 temperature is 60 degrees, it also beckons me to enjoy its warmth. This morning we ran off to playgroup at the park, a luxury I have not enjoyed for months. It was just lovely. Sunshine and friends! Here are some pictures.
The play structure was a huge hit, and I was pleased to see that Gavin was mostly safe to climb and slide on his own. He went down the slide again and again and again!
We also survived a park outing without any sand fights! Both boys enjoyed themselves in the sand...thanks to the tools a thoughtful Mommy provided!
I took these photos in our back yard yesterday afternoon. Gavin had so much fun and the pictures are adorable, so I'm posting a few.
This action shot of the big boys is the best I could manage...they were playing kickball with a neighbor friend and having a blast together. Hooray for happy afternoons.
As for the daughter portion of this post, suffice it to say that five Bartles (along with a few other Bartles and non-Bartles, I imagine) are getting super anxious to meet our Little Miss. I was disappointed to discover at this morning's OB appointment that I have not progressed further than I have, but I'm getting some pre-labor action that I hope will develop into something real!
Meanwhile, I found some delightful young-mommy-themed articles online today that I thought I'd share. While all those I've read were amusing, this one particularly resonated today. Enjoy!
