Playground Weather AT LAST!

So I know you've all heard me mumblin' and grumblin' around the blogosphere about the stinkin' weather we've been having. Snow storms off and on the whole month!

Well, today was absolutely beautiful! It's supposed to snow again on Wednesday, so we took the kids to the park to enjoy the sunshine! I didn't forget my camera this time, and I was so excited about the weather, I got a little carried away! You'll be my BFF if you make it all the way to the bottom of this post! I hope the sun is shining on you!

The view of the beautiful mountains from where I stood:


The girlies flyin high on the swings:








Remember slides? My butt would get stuck if I tried to go down one now!

See why we call her "Monkey"?
This is a random friendly little girl who decided Monkey was her new best friend!

Looks like a good time was had by all and I noticed the bare arms!! I sure hope the snow passes you by.

Anissa said...

Sorry to hear about all the snow, but what a beautiful day!

I just love the pictures you took of the mountains -- we would love to move some where with that view.

Your little girl is just too cute.

They look like they had a wonderful time.

Where are you from?

Oh my... those mountains are just beautiful! Where are you? I'll have to see if you say that somewhere on your blog. The kids look like they had a great day! We were planning to go for a walk today. They said it was supposed to get up to 51 degrees, but it only got up to 40 at our house and we were freezing, so we didn't go!
Someday soon we'll have nice warm weather!

Looks like the weather was great! I love when the sun comes out after it has been gloomy for awhile!

Shawn said...

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

AMAZING views!!! Such pretty little girls, and I love the new BFF. Don't you love how they just make friends wherever they go?? :)

Amy said...

I love the mountains. I use to live where there were mountains. I love that your children are not wearing coats.

It was 68 degrees here in New Mexico and I was LOVIN' the weather, too! Parks are the best. BTW loved your comment about layin' down some hurt with the arguing kiddos. With three competetive girls ages 9,8, and 6 I SO feel your pain! Have a great week!

I made it to the end of the post--so I guess that makes me your new BFF! Cute pictures. I was amazed the grass was so green with all the snow. Hopefully the snows will go away one of these days, but unfortunately when the weather is nice in Utah, it is miserable here in AZ!

The Un-Organized Mom said...

Ohhhh you have mountains....I want mountains....or at least to see them and take pictures...

Looks like you guys had a great time! Hoping we have nice weather soon, we are just itching for some park time!

Small House said...

Glad you got to enjoy the nice weather before Wednesday. I'm not looking forward to it.

Kasey said...

Wonderful and super important advice from FMM! I'm blessed to have a great husband that thankfully is super good with our money!

gosh, I could look at the mountain pictures all day long...thanks for sharing!

Vivienne said...

What a great day! And how cool that your husband could go too. It's always more fun when everybody is there.

And I love the pix of your "monkey" and her new buddy. How great that kids can be insta-friends.

Sturgmom said...

OK, I'm stating for the record that you are NO LONGER allowed to complain about the measly weather when you can see the MOUNTAINS when you're at the park!!

We're in TX. Have you ever been to TX? The best thing we see at the park is....much less stellar than the FREAKIN' MOUNTAINS!! ;)

Tracey said...

I think I could be happy for a very long time just looking at those mountains!! Great pictures!

Swoozie said...

What a great time! Kids at playgrounds ----- they are just so darned happy when they are at one!

Our fave playground is opening for the season (drumroll) tomorrow! And we'll be there.....
