Spring is here (or is it summer??)

Today was the official start of "spring" in the Smith household.

First of all, we went to our first baseball game of the year at the Reading Phillies. It is usually a really fun place to go ... however, not as fun when it's 90+ degrees outside, your seat is in the sun, and your kids are melting. And melting down. My friends Patti, Brianne & I spent most of the game out in the concourse area with our little ones, so at least the company was great! :) And I tried Dipping Dots for the first time with my kids. :) I know, lame.

The other "first" of today was the first day of outdoor water play! Carter got a "wacky waterpillar" sprinkler for his birthday, and since his birthday is in JANUARY, this was our first opportunity to use it. The kids were so excited. And soon half the neighborhood was out to join in the fun.

Then we had another first for the season - first fat lip from a facedown fall into the pavement ... poor Carter. :(

We have one other "first" to share from this weekend ... but I'll wait on that one and keep you in suspense .... :) Tune in later this week!

Looks like the kiddos are having a great time;-) I'm sorry about the little guy and his lip.

Have a great day!

Thanks for letting all the kids join in on the fun sprinkler. I just love watching Carter around water. He is totally in his element.
