If these photos had been taken during a spring break, they would have made perfect sense. Sunny, bright, flowery, smiley -- all outdoors, soaking up the springness of the world.
But, no -- they were taken last week. A regular week of work and school.
Today -- and yesterday and the day before -- on our actual spring break, we are rained out. A giant weathery, moisturey, cloudy system is lounging on top of us this week, so we're mostly indoor- bound.
If not for a fun playdate yesterday and the hope of sunshine tomorrow, I'd probably be brooding. Not only are we not off on a grand adventure, we're barred from exploring our own backyard which is a veritable quagmire at the moment.
But come to think of it...quagmires sound exciting. Messy. Maybe we should venture out...
A kind of 'see how muddy one little girl can become' adventure.
If the actual rainfall holds off for much longer, we might head out there. Traipse through mud puddles. Wallow in wetness. Head back inside for a lunch picnic on the living room floor.
But in the meantime, I'm just going to give myself a little break from our cloudy spring break by gazing at sunshiney photos for a while. It's like a vacation from the drear.
What are/were your family's spring break plans? Loafing around muddy backyards? Driving to sunny locales? Visiting family? And what are your best ideas for indoor adventures while we wait for the rain to blow away?
