There is SUNSHINE in the Mitten!!! Temps are above 30 degrees!!!
This is good news. Welcome, March! I love the promise of Spring.
The last time I took the quads outside to play must have been before Christmas. It is just too much work to gear everyone up since they like to undress as fast as I dress them. That, and temps have been way too cold. But with the promise of Spring around the corner and the warmer temps, this weekend I took them outside to play. With a little help from Jenna and our neighbors, everyone had a blast and we played outside over an hour!

~Hannah & Lauren~
|Well, at least I got 4/5 in the sled. I pulled Jenna, Lauren, Hannah & Tanner until I ran out of steam, it was a heavy sled!|
|Jenna pulling Lauren, who liked laying down more than sitting up apparently!|
After lunch and naps, the kids were begging to go outside and play in the snow again. I didn't want to gear everyone up again since I had to start dinner soon, so I did the next best thing. My friend and fellow quad-mama Amber just wrote in her "Four to Adore" blog about her snow adventures in TEXAS and how her kiddos played with snow inside. I love this option, so that is what we did!
The kids were occupied over an hour playing inside with snow!
|Tyler, Tanner, Hannah & Lauren were thrilled when I dumped the cold spread onto the table|
|Dig in, kiddos! I threw in a few of our toy kitchen gadgets which worked out perfect with the snow|
|Tyler kept on telling me how cold it was|
|Lauren making a snow cup cake|
|Tyler dumping snow on the floor...|
|...and then politely cleaning it up|
|"Tee hee hee.... a mess mom is letting me make!"|
|Even Jenna had a blast playing with snow inside|
A double-snow-winner of a day!
When's the last time YOU played in snow???
