It is a GLORIOUS day here in Bloomington, MN and I have total spring fever. So, Isabelle, Macie and I went on our first walk of spring. Isabelle rode her scooter through every puddle and I pushed Macie in my "made for the mall, not for the outdoors" stroller through an ice slushy. It probably wouldn't have been so bad if we would have stuck to the streets, but if you have seen Ponsi ride her scooter you would know why it is much safer for us to stick to the sidewalks. So despite the bottoms of our pants being covered in mud (actually Ponsi fell twice so she was completely covered in mud) and my arms being a little sore, I feel so refreshed to have felt the sun on my face and to have breathed the fresh air into my lungs. Ronsi, however, lost her steam after about 3/4 mile and made me carry her scooter home (well, she didn't MAKE me--I gave in--she had fallen twice for goodness sake)and she is now taking a hot bath and expecting hot chocolate when she is done. Oh well. Happy Spring!
(p.s.--I fully realize it is not technically spring yet and we may get a snowstorm in a day or two, but I am relishing my spring day today--that's all.)
Macie was not happy when I made her come in. Temper, temper. ;)
