Sunshine at Last

The weather is finally warming up around here, and it has been SO nice.  Last week we met a friend, her daughter is six months younger than Ryan, and her son is two months older than Cole, for a walk and picnic at a park.  Ryan and H. had a lot of fun running around and playing in the warm weather, and we enjoyed the sunshine as well. 

We have discovered that Cole doesn’t like the grass.  Every time we try to put him on it, he cries, and gets a really freaked out look on his face.  So I have resorted to putting him in a cardboard box, so he can be outside too.  He won’t crawl off of it.

Today he sat in his box, while Ryan played, and I went in and out of the house, doing  laundry.  I managed to snap this picture of him in the box- 🙂


A few minutes later it dawned on me that I could put his exerciser out, and he really liked that.  I heard Ryan singing to him, after Cole had been outside for about 10 minutes, and I walked by the door and saw this:


That really touched my heart.  Sometimes it seems like all I do all day is tell Ryan, “no,” and “be nice to Cole.”  It was nice to see that Ryan can be sweet to Cole as well, and makes me wonder how many other tender moments like this I have missed seeing.

In other news, we are really busy, trying to figure out what kind of car we want, and then we have to narrow it down and go do some test drives. 

We finally got our taxes done yesterday (doing a happy dance,) AND we get a pretty good refund back.  (doing another happy dance.) BUT now we will probably end up spending it on the replacement car- (no more happy dances.)

I also have a lot of work, from my job that I am trying to organize, so if I don’t blog that much this week, that is why, or else I am trying to enjoy the nice weather while it lasts.



  1. LOL about the box. that is too cute.

    and what a tender moment you captured. so sweet. 🙂

    congrats on the tax refund. we STILL need to file ours. *gulp*

  2. Awww! Too cute! I hear you. Some days it feels like I’m just on Simon all day to be nice to Q. Sigh.

    I agree – bummer about the tax return going to car…but isn’t it good to have choices other than more debt!? 🙂
