Project 52, Week 4: OUTSIDE!!!

Week 4 brought us two whole days of gorgeous weather! 70 degrees in January in Kansas is a gift, especially for those of us with kids. We have been trapped inside due to cold and snow, and now we get to go outside! Just try to forget that we are supposed to get six inches of snow on Tuesday. Remember the 70 degrees!!

I hear Carter say "Outside? Outside?" several times a day, and we finally got to go to the park to enjoy the weather. He was so excited! He loves the slides, going up the stairs and down the slide over and over and over again. The first picture is my picture of the week, but I couldn't choose just one to show off.

You can see in the picture below the look on his face that say "I am so excited to be outside and go down this slide!"  Each time he would go down the slide, he would sit several feet from where the slide began. Then he would scoot to the edge and have a huge smile on his face. It was pretty adorable to watch him concentrate on getting to the right spot.

He also loved the swing. I think he was on it for 15 or 20 minutes, which may have set a record on length of time contained in one place! In the photo of him swinging, he's looking off to the side at two little girls playing on the playground; he was mesmerized by them! We had so much fun enjoying the weather and playing outside; now its time to bundle up again...
