Rainy Days

I love spring weather. And yes, I'm saying this during the month of February. I love the 50 degree weather we've been getting mixed with the occasional rainy day. The kids do too. I have decided that there are not enough parks though, and most parks (at least in Davis county) don't have swings. Who thought that its a good idea to get rid of swings? Emma and David love to swing but there are only two parks that have any swings. Most are just the big toys and jungle gyms. I remember when I was little, swings were staples at parks. Oh well, I guess its just a sign of the times. (I'm getting old!)

Had a date night with Justin for the first time in months last Friday. Our stake was combining with a few others to have a multi-stake adult dance. We got babysitters (grandma and grandpa), had clothes ready, and everything was set. Then as life goes, Justin gets home late. The kids have run me down (because they just had to be bad after being good all week). So the babysitters show up. I was halfway tempted to just tell them to watch the kids while I go to bed, but I didn't. You would think that we would then go to the dance even though it was halfway over. No. Instead we went walking (so I wouldn't fall asleep). I have to say it was just nice to talk to my husband about anything I wanted to without kids telling me I need to change the subject to something less boring. It was nice. Everyone should make time to spend one on one with their spouse.


  1. Hurray for free babysitters!!! We sure miss that!
    That's how it is here too- there are pretty good until I really need them to be! :0)
    And I wish our spring weather was your spring weather- I am ready to get rid of our snow!

  2. "they" are good, not "there", and the kids, I mean :0)
