We're having a HEAT WAVE!




Ah, the joy of living in New Mexico, where on the first day of March temperatures reach 66! Of course we had to get out and take advantage of the beautiful weather and head out for an afternoon of playing in the park and having a picnic.

The boys loved being outside without their big coats, hats, gloves and boots. The sunshine felt wonderful, and even the breeze felt nice. Then, of course, the wind picked up and we were reminded that spring is the windy season! We ate our grilled chicken sandwiches and headed home for dessert, but no complaining - it was a treat to be outside again! We may have rushed to judgement that spring had arrived, we woke up the next day to a blanket of snow on the ground again...Oh well, it was wonderful while it lasted, and we know we'll be enjoying warm weather long before our family and friends back in MI. :)
