It is absolutely beautiful outside! I took the girls to the library after our brunch and then we hit a couple of consignment shops. We didn't even need coats!! Everything is melting and the alley ways are like streams glistening in the sun. How excited the girls were to step out the door and to see the anticipation of spring burst from their little bodies. But I reminded them, it's Iowa!! We could have a snowstorm next week, next month, even in April. We'll just appreciate the warmth while it's here. Too bad Sean had drill this weekend, it would have been nice to go for a walk together.
Even though it's beautiful I am only half enjoying it as my body is fighting off the cold the rest of the family has been suffering. My body is tired and my back aches so much I feel like an elderly lady who just stepped off a roller coaster.
We're less than a week away from GEM's 2nd birthday. It seems such a short time ago that we were getting the nursery ready for her and now we're getting her ready for the big girl bed! She'll have no problems opening her presents this year. She's a very independent little girl and very possessive as well so we'll see how she handles her party. :) We did plan the party for after her nap.
