friday already?

wow i have been a slacker blogger this week.  i do have an excuse, the sun!!!!!  it came out.  so we went out.  a lot.  play play play.   run run run.  explore all the pretty green things.  look up at the blue sky.  get sweaty and flushed.  drink lemonade.  ride big wheels.  go to bed good and tired.  make wishes on all our wishers! wake up greet the sun, and do it all over again.  i do love that sun! and i am quite smitten with all things green these days. like a color my mind forgot, now suddenly remembered.
 now this weekend brings out of state family for a certain young lady's sweet 16 celebration.  yes i will be a momma of a 16 year old so very soon.  that is just crazy talk i tell ya!   i was surprised with a new lens from my husband.   i am getting to know it and boy it catches some beautiful light.  the colors of the flares are so pretty in pinks and reds, swoon!   sunshine plus a new lens = good stuff for flare fridays. 
hung wash on the line, opened all the windows, did a deep cleaning ( that is cathartic to me), cut the entire lawn, even the backyard where it is shady had grown enough to warrant a cut, looks so nice freshly cut and reborn after the long winter.  again with the greens.  lush.  i am feeling a crush on spring now for sure.  it was almost 90 here yesterday (fleeting for certain).  i wanted to lie on my back and let it bake me, but alas there was all that cleaning and getting ready to do...  the first round of family arrived late yesterday and the kids are just so excited!  we hadn't seen them since before christmas.  the kids change so much in those few months.  casey now a big girl, in a big bed , fully potty trained and kellen grew a few inches i am sure, and well taylor,  she will be 16!  (again, AHHHH!!!!)   i see them every day and they change right before my eyes, so i am sure to our visiting family it is huge change.    it will be a busy weekend of reconnecting and celebrating a milestone.   
have a happy weekend everyone!
