Beautiful day!

Yesterday was our first 70 degree day in what feels like a year but was probably only about 6 months haha. I had to work so the girls and I were busy from 8 to 5:40 so we didn't get a lot of time to really enjoy it but when I pulled in our driveway at 6:03 we got out of car and walked the block to the park. We were there for half an hour before the girls started to ask for dinner. We decided to go home and get the girls sweaters and walk the 5 blocks to the Pizzeria and get pasta for dinner. It was a nice walk for us a nice roll in the stroller for the girls. When we got home, the girls and I ate a dish of penne alla vodka (They LOVE this pasta dish). We played for another half hour and at 9 they went to bed.

We are trying to get them back to sleeping in their own beds. Due to tons of fevers this winter, they spent a lot of time in our bed so I could feel when their temps spike. The first night (wednesday) was great. They thought it was fun and feel asleep no issues. The second night was hard. Katie screamed to get into mommys bed, then screamed to get into daddys bed (same bed, different sides lol). When the screaming didn't work, she crawled by the door and started calling "Mommy? Daddy?" to which we answered "Back to bed, Katie". After a few minutes, we went and they had switched beds and fallen asleep. Whatever works. Last night, thanks to the beautiful day, they girls went to sleep literally 5 seconds after the second book. I should add that I, too, fell asleep after the second book. I got an hour of sleep then got up because I still had to clean up.

Today is supposed to be only 50 but that's still warm enough to get us outside for a few minutes. We plan on heading to the park when the sun comes up because right now it's only about 35 and that's a bit chilly.

It's amazing how rejuvenating the spring weather is, isn't it? Here's hoping it's here to stay!
