I just love the huge trees in our backyard. They are so TALL...you just don't see that in newer developments.
Some things I'm looking forward to this spring/summer:
--Spending time on the swings in the backyard. We took Addison and Mackenzie out to swing yesterday afternoon, and they were SO loving it. I could have pushed them all day.
--Getting a pool for them to splash around in. I was thinking I might order this one. (Except I just realized when I read the reviews that it keeps running water from the hose, which would be really cold. So now I don't know.) I wasn't sure the babies would like the splashing effect, but lately, they stick their faces and hands under the running water in the bath every night, so I'm thinking it might be a hit. Anyone tried it? Have any other pool recommendations?
--Vacation-planning. I love to PLAN a good trip almost as much as I love to take one. I carefully scrutinize hotels, restaurants, and travel routes to make sure we maximize our time. Yes, I'm a nerd, and I'm a nerd who loves to eat good food on vacation. I would like to go to Savannah, GA, but I'm not sure it will happen this year. My sister will be participating in Summer Beach Project again this year, so we will probably head down to Destin, FL to see her for a long weekend. I guess I won't complain about missing out on Savannah if I get to spend a few days relaxing by the pool or on the beach.
--Baseball! We only made it to one game last year, which was pretty good, all things considered. This year I would like to go to at least three games. We'll see how it goes. Turner Field is about 3 hours away, which is just enough that we can either make a day-trip or extend it into a nice overnight trip. The girls may even get to experience their first major-league game this year!
--Cute summer clothes, for both me and Addison and Mackenzie. I just love summertime skirts and flip flops! : )
Most of all, I'm looking forward to being able to get out and about more with the girls. We can take walks when I get home in the afternoons, and we are more likely to go out to eat, etc. when we don't have to bundle up to get there.
What are you looking forward to this spring? (Or fall, in the case of you South Africans??)
