In Need of the Great Outdoors

It's been a cold winter.  Not cold enough to keep us indoors everyday, but cold enough that going outside while having to put on layers of clothes becomes more of a hassle than it seems worth with two young children. I'm usually frustrated and grumbling by the time we make it out the door.

That's why this sun-filled weekend was so great. No layers. No jackets. Just heading straight outside with none of the extra stuff.

On Saturday we meandered our way around the pond at our local art museum to get an up-close look at all the outdoor art work. The art museum has been open for 10 years, but only recently began displaying outdoor pieces,

Jack, who informed me on the way how cool he thought heads were because his art class this past week focused on heads - big ones, famous ones, weird ones - was hoping to see a bronzed head of some sort. While I'm sorry to say no heads were on display, here's what we did come across:

A Depection of a Wooden Bridge


A Flying House Equipped with Turbo Boosters

No Clue, But it was Fun Playing Peek-A-Boo

 My Personal Favorite - The Prayer Booth


And Sunday we were joined by what seemed like most of the town at a local park.

Enjoying Time on the Swing



Having Fun on the Outdoor Exercise Equipment

These folks had the right idea - Mimosas and Hammocks

The spring-like weekend was nice. It seems this week might bring another winter storm our way. If it does, it will be the first time, at least in my recollection during the past 35 years, to have snowed twice in the same year.
