Getting Our Vitamin D the Old Fashioned Way

I’m sure you’ve all heard the rumors about Seattle: it rains. A lot. Well, that rumor is pretty true. Although most of the time it’s more of a drizzle/mist/grayness. Having been born and raised in these parts, I actually love it. If it goes more than three days without raining I start to get restless and a bit cranky. When the sky opens up and drops that liquid sunshine once again, I feel so much more calm and restored. Seriously, people have told me I have some kind of Stockholm Syndrome about the rain.

Anyway, this past Easter weekend was unseasonably bright and warm and sunny. We’re talking around 70 degrees without a cloud in the sky. We took advantage of every moment we could of that sunshine, getting out to the zoo and my parents’ big yard for Easter, and also spending a good amount of time in our own backyard. I hit up Target with the kiddos and got Zoey a huge red ball and no-spill bubbles for outdoor play.

Eleanor got to experience grass for the first time, as well as her first time in a real swing (not the “put the baby to sleep,” kept in the house, battery operated kind of swing). It was a weekend of a lot of firsts for little Ellie!

That little smirk gets me every time.
That little smirk gets me every time.
I think she's a fan

Good kicking Zoey!
Good kicking Zoey!
Bubbles!
Bubbles!
So happy to be outside
So happy to be outside

  1. Oh, both my hubby and I agree with you about the rain! Where we are (southeastern Idaho) we don’t get that much, but he grew up on the eastern coast and we long for it…one day… I love that Ellie got to “meet” grass. And like Zoey, I likey da bubbles! ;o)
