Winter play time!

It's no secret that I don't really like winter! I will gladly proclaim it from the rooftops that I do not like winter! I dream of being on a warm beach with plenty of sunshine all winter. The hardest part for me is that it seems to be cloudy for weeks at a time and I don't get to go outside daily like I love to do. Well, I decided on Saturday to take a break from my chores to hang outside with the boys. And , just so you know, it takes longer to get them all ready to go outside, then we actually spend outside! It can get rather frustrating to say the least but once I get outside and enjoy it makes it a little better. Here's some pics from our time outside:

Photobucket
T isn't crying here it was just cold!

Photobucket
I'm not sure what this plant is but B insisted I take a picture of it!

Photobucket
Snow Angels!

Photobucket
At this point in time I said, "Not when I have the camera!" Do you see the same look in his eye that I do!?!

Photobucket
B taking a break!

So even though it took forever to get ready it felt good to get outside and have fun and get fresh air! I can't wait for spring!
