Once Upon a Bright Sunny Day

Uh ya, not so much lately... it seems like sunny days are few and far between here. The majority of our days have been wet, gray, and just plain gloomy. Oh yes, then I remember back as to why I moved to FL almost 10 years ago-- the sun!!! There's just one benefit to all these gray days... we will never, ever take a sunny one for granted. True that people!! We'll cherish it like no other and we'll suck it up and soak it up-- that my friends is a fact!

Two weeks ago on one of those rare sunny days that we pray for, we took the kids out allll day long. 
Here's looking back at that beautiful, luminous, 70 degree, perfect weather day. 

we had lots of fun and we.... 

jumped for joy that it was nice out

picked dandelions 

played soccer and inspected weeds and bugs

we ran around

 and ran some more

we hit up the slides 
(Kellen carried a ball around the entire day, John's optimistic we'll have a jock in the family)

and hung out on the junglegym 

We are anxiously awaiting the next sunny day! :)
