This weekend was the first 80 plus degree day in Portland for over 7 months.
Let me give you a moment to think about that – 7 MONTH!
Can you even contemplate the pressure that puts on a person to have a great weekend and to soak up every single second of sunshine and warmth?
I didn’t quite soak up every second but we got outside for the most part. Kei and Thomas went canoeing on Saturday morning and then headed to T-ball in the afternoon. Samuel and I spent the morning at the park with a “progressive snack” which is just like a progressive dinner except it involves snacks consumed in a variety of park locations that are chosen at a three-year-old’s whim. It took a long time to get from one end of the park to the other but we eventually made it to the playground before I took Samuel home for a nap.
After nap and T-ball, we rode our bikes to Mississippi Ave for some ice cream. The perfect pass time for, what turned out to be, a very warm spring day.
I didn’t take this photo on the weekend – it’s about a week old – but I think it summarizes my Saturday with Samuel perfectly – just hanging out.
It’s also my entry for the latest I heart faces challenge, “From a distance”.
