Sunshine!

It is spring in Montana! Look at the sunshine. Oh - look how it brings a smile to the young child's face... OH wait - she is just a camera ham... Seriously, though, isn't the sun lovely?

Even Jake emerges from his cave when the sun is shining. I am making that up - Jake swings hours a day, everyday, even if it is raining. This is the log swing Sean built to accommodate our 6 ft, 230 lb swing addict. But, it looks so much more fun and wonderful while the sun is shining down on them!


Here is Chica basking in the warmth - this is the weather of her people! Yes, the sun is shining - but I do not kid myself - it will snow again. It is only April after all. Since moving to Montana from Texas in 1998 I have seen snow every month except in July. I am waiting for that one though - I have heard stories from native Montanans that remember snow on July 4th. But, I will put that out of my mind for today, because for today - We have SUNSHINE!! Glorious Sunshine!!!

Snow in July, eh? If I didn't plan to ever move to Montana before, I definitely don't plan to now! I'm a sun snob.

Yes, I love the sun. A bit gloomy here but sun and warmth forecasted for Thursday on through the weekend.

I love seeing your happy kids bask in the sun! That is sweet that Jake still likes to swing! And Lizzie may be a camera ham - but she certainly lights up the photos with her beautiful smile!!
