The last few days have been absolutely frigid. Our time outside is short, but it's also glorious on days like today when the sun is shining and the sky is clear blue. We had a really lovely Sunday, some spent outside, some inside. It's one that I want to remember for it's quality time together and it's little, perfect moments.
Anna woke, after sleeping in, to find Aunt Carolyn and Uncle Blair at our house, and her initially whiny mood immediately changed to excitement. They came late and stayed over night due to a foul gasoline smell that invaded their apartment yesterday.
Carolyn and I went to sweaty yoga while Anna played with Blake and Blair.
Anna took a nap, and while she did, Blake and I lounged in bed reading and napping ourselves.
After nap time, we bundled ourselves and marched out into the freezing day. We shoveled, ate snow (what's left of it), and tracked a rather large bird via it's footprints in our front yard. It seems some bird of prey was chasing a bunny or a mouse, making an intricate pattern in the snow.
Shovels taking a break.
More footprints in the snow.
Blake finalized travel plans for our family "spring break." We are so looking forward to sun and sand in West Palm Beach, Florida.
After the cold, we snuggled on the warm couch with popcorn, and we watched Mary Poppins. It was Anna's first viewing and only a partial one, but she loved the music and would not stop talking about all the things she wanted to do that Mary Poppins does (on the way up to bath, I had to help her "slide" up and down the bannister). She effortlessly belted out Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious all by herself before dinner. Now, she wants to watch it again and again and again.
