    First day of Spring


    Yesterday was the first day of Spring. To celebrate, we headed to the newly thawed neighborhood park. We loaded up the trusty red wagon, and headed on over. It was a perfect park day. Sunny, breezy, and cool. The kids played and played and played. Maggie even got brave enough to go down the biggest slide! I was very proud. Gretta enjoyed the slides, too.


    But she especially loved the swing. She kept putting her arms out the leg holes and laughing her butt off. She's such a silly kid.

    Emma showing how "brave" she is. Such a dork.


    Afterwards, we headed to Buffalo Wild Wings for the District 41 fund raiser night. It was packed, and the food was eh. We then celebrated this first day of Spring further by sending the kids to bed early, and retiring early ourselves. Ah, sleep.

    Gretta obviously didn't get the whole sleep memo thing, because for some reason she was awake from 12:45 until 4:00, when Sean finally put her in the Pack N' Play that still resides in my closet. She slept for a couple of hours, but then woke back up at 6:30. WHY!!!

    Honestly, I think she's getting the two top teeth, and I'm pretty sure she's miserable. But Sean's home from work today due to Good Friday, so we thought we'd head to the City for some Planetarium action. But apparently Mother Nature didn't get the first day of Spring memo either, since it snowed 6" last night. Hopefully we can salvage some of our Holiday.

    Happy Easter!

    Do you remember that really tall metal slide they used to have at Riverton Park? I used to think that was so much fun. WHenever we went to the park I headed straight for it and never left.

    Sadly I don't think they allow stand alone 20 foot tall slides made out of steel in parks anymore.

    So, your kid is still sleeping the closet, eh?

    You are so white trash, a kid in your closet? I should have called you this morning at 4:00am when Gracie was up. At least we could have gotten some sista chat in. It must be the teeth and time change. Gracie is messed up too. Good Luck at the planetaruim. Wish we were with you.

    Jake- I totally remember that slide. It was the best! It used to get all hot in the summer, and inevitably some kid would pee on it. Gross.

    Meg and Jill- Yes, she's still sleeping in the closet. At least last night, anyway. She likes it in there. Hopefully tonight she'll be better.

    Laura- I'm so over winter. It sucks. I need some glimpse of Spring. A Daffodil or Tulip sprig. That would make me very, very happy.
