A few sunny shots to remind us of the spring weather we had last week. Tony and I actually pulled out the deck furniture (realizing that waiting to paint the deck = not having any deck furniture this season), and, more to the point, opened up the little hand me down turtle sand box. I can't even believe how great the kids were - no sand throwing, no tantrums, just lots of fun. The girls built little towers for the boys to smash, and then I built big towers for the girls to smash. We killed the better part of 2 hours out here one evening and it was like a little slice of heaven. There's nothing quite like getting your hands and feet in some sand to life your spirits.
