The Happiness Project :: Week 1

We had perfect weather over the weekend.
It was just right for playing outside all day.
We headed out to the backyard in the morning
and pretty much played out there until the sun went down.


 I love that my kids still find playing 
on the swing set entertaining.

Koen recently built up his courage
to sit in the "big kid swing"
and now he's a daredevil.
He felt so adventurous 
swinging with no hands for a millisecond.

Roger and I enjoy sitting back together
and watching them do boy stuff.

Of course, there was heavy work to be done 
with Koen's frontloader...

and a badminton championship
that induced squeals and laughter.

It felt delicious to play outside
in the sun.

It wasn't an extravagant day
but sometimes afternoons spent at home 
end up being the funnest.

Later that evening, as the sun
was setting on our perfect day,
we ate dinner on our patio
under the dreamy lights of our shade umbrella.

It was the first of many Spring days
spent outside and enjoying the simple
moments that warm weather has to offer.

I just really adore this time of year.

We had a gorgeous weekend as well. GEne and the kids worked in the yard while I worked on wiping walls and such in the house with windows open. It was glorious.

Seems like a great weekend! Love the lights on the umbrella... will have to steal that idea once we put our gazebo up. :)

Time together is so valuable, isn't it? I had to smile at how much your post resembled mine today.

It is not quite warm spring weather around here...we still have some snow on the ground! But the ocean has stopped heaving big boulders across the causeway so we are hopeful that spring is just around the corner.
