The Crazy Outdoors

This morning would have been perfect for curling up with a good book and a cup of coffee. It was one of those grey misty mornings where it almost seems like the day hasn’t actually started. But, because I have a 1-year-old who is obcessed with being outside, and getting increasinly stir-crazy stuck in the house all day, we bundled up and headed out.

Jack had a very busy morning mowing the lawn and trampling my emerging daffodil buds:

He’s in a phase right now where he won’t look at the camera. He’s even figured out my phone is a camera and takes off running when he sees me pull it out.

This was the best ‘smiling’ shot I could get:

nice and blurry

Contrary to the sour faces in the pictures above, he was actually having a blast playing and running and pointing and yelling with all the joy that a one-year-old can have. He did not, however, appreciate me removing him from my flower beds. Which, of course, were his favorite place to play. And to be fair, he really didn’t like the hat I forced him to wear. But, it’s my mother’s right to make him wear ridiculous things, especially hats. So wear it he did.

Here’s hoping for sunny skies and warmer temps ahead.
