A day off

We had beautiful weather on Monday and since the girls were off from school for President's Day, we spent most of the day outside.  In fact, they even ate 'dinner' outside{sandwiches&juice boxes}while they played with neighboor kids; then we had to carry them into to the house straight upstairs for a bath b/c they{mostly their orange&brown feet!} were so dirty.

 Jon actually was 'off ' as well, not because of Pres day, but because he worked Saturday.  So we{Jon}got a little project done:)

Our swing is hung:)  It too came from my Aunt Violet's home and I knew that I wanted it here, in our front yard.  We have rather large trees pretty much every where{some of which I would love taken down}but the one's in the front are beautiful-perfect for shade and swinging:)

You can see the kid swings hanging in the back there under that Magnolia in the center of the cul-de-sac, and now the grownups have a place to ride too.  But this swing is so long it fit's all of us on it perfectly.

This is looking up into the tree from the swing; all the little leaf buds are budding and I CAN NOT WAIT for full blown spring and green grass.  Bloom babies bloom!
