A brief respite from the cold

Last year this time, we were buried beneath three feet of snow.
This year, we're enjoying a beautiful "false" spring.
I know that the weather won't last.
In fact, tomorrow should be twenty degrees colder than it was today,
but we've loved every moment of it.

The kids got a chance to play in the yard
(it was terribly muddy, but they couldn't be stopped!)

The girls rode horses without needing the extra gloves and coats.
Freedom!

And, just for today, I broke out my flip-flops.
(It was 73 degrees!!)
Tomorrow they will get put away and I can't really say when I'll get to wear them again.

I've heard rumors of snow flurries on Tuesday!
Really????
Whyyyyyyyy???

PS... It's my son's 14th birthday and I've been busy preparing and will be busy playing all day,
so if I don't get a chance to respond to everyone's comments,
I just want to say thank you and I hope to catch up with you on Sunday!

Oh, I just love the light in the photo of your son holding the football. Amazing! Love love love the collection. As always. (Does it ever get boring to hear me say the same things about your wonderful collages? Just wondering....) ;)

Enjoy the mild weather for me. We're stuck in a deep freeze at below -20 for the next week or so. :(

Love your photos!

My kids and dog were out playing in the mud also. I finally gave up trying to clean my floors. I'll clean them on Monday when no one is home to dirty them up again right away. :)
