A Sense of Warmth

filed under: Miscellaneous on April 26, 2011

Yesterday, we felt the sun.

Hours and hours of warm, comforting sun.

We set up the chairs and had ourselves a mini picnic.

Fresh popped popcorn, huge lucious strawberries, and simply sweet lemonade.

There is just something about munching on treats while lounging in the sun.

We havent done it for months now… and the fulfilling joy a lazy spring day brings had been sorely missed.

    We too enjoyed lots of time outside yesterday! We didn’t have comfy chairs like you though, but we did have strawberries! 🙂 We packed a picnic and the kids road their bikes through the campground to find the perfect picnic spot. We ended up next to one of the ponds where we watched turtles and frogs climb on the reeds to sun themselves.
    Makes me wonder how we ever survived winter!
    Glad you were able to soak up some sunshine and cute kids too!
