These Beautiful Days

1.28.2014

We've had some really warm days these last few weeks- I think it's even gotten up into the low 90's more than once. While most of our friends around the country are experiencing freezing or even negative temperatures, we're spending as much time as we can outdoors.  

The day after we brought Adelyn home, Emerson begged to go swimming. You know you live in Southern California when it's warm enough to get the kiddie pool out in January. As you can see, she had an absolute blast.





 Notice her choice of toys? A coffee can, ice cube tray, and the hospital spray bottle. Who needs toys?







We've also spent quite a bit of time at the park. As I've mentioned before, we are so lucky to have at least 7 playgrounds within walking distance. Over the last few days we've made our rounds to at least three of them.







We've also been going on daily walks. E is happy to go along for the ride as long as we make a stop at the playground on the way back. I think all of the outside time has done all of us good. Luckily Adelyn loves being in the Boba wrap and she pretty much sleeps the whole time.

I'm so thankful to live in a city with such beautiful weather. Any place that allows me to wear flip flops year round is definitely a place I don't mind calling home! As you can plainly see, Emerson is not complaining either!

So jealous.

I'll be dreaming of your weather while NC is hit with snow and sleet tonight and tomorrow.

So jealous of your warm weather and swimming in January! It's -16 here today, blah! Also, E is just precious and growing up so fast!

isn't it wonderful that we can be outside...in bathing suits...and everyone else is bundled up beyond belief ;)

I'm so jealous you get to live in "real" California and I'm stuck in the high desert. ;o) It's actually been really warm for us too, but not that warm. I LOVE the water toys Emerson is playing with. HA!

Okay so you know that I love ya, but this post kind of makes me hate you because of your weather.

I LOVE living in Central Florida for the exact same reason. My little toddler desperately needs to be outdoors. I could not imagine being confined inside!

Traci said...

Are you trying to torture us? That weather is amazing. I'm just going to stare at your pictures all day and pretend I'm there.

As much as this post makes me want to hate you...since we're experiencing sub zero temps up here in Minnesota (I'd KILL to wear flip flops right now and have that warm sun on my face) I just can't - you have THE cutest little family. Glad you are enjoying California and the beautiful weather. And if possible...send some up this way..please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can definitely say I am missing sunny California. The sun is shining and don't have snow. Just wish it would warm up past freezing.
