Enjoying a spring morning.

I pulled open the blinds this morning and saw that the sun spilled in and the sky turn blue. I said Oh yay spring is here today!
I rushed Wyatt through breakfast, got us ready for the day grabbed the cats and went outside.

The sun warmed our faces and the grass tickled our toes as our souls breathed in the sweet smell of spring.
How we longed for days like these...

it made us happy. satisfied and oh soo excited.
We sang songs, danced and even pulled out the sandbox played with the forgotten toys left in there from the year before. We smothered our self in that dusty sand because in the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.
