Even though it heralds the downhill run to the misery that is summer, I love spring in Austin. The days start out cool enough to warrant a jacket but warm up nicely by the afternoons. We have clear blue skies and blooming trees and wildflowers.
This week is Spring Break for the kids, and I feel obligated to spend every minute I can outside with them, because I know that in a few short months I'm going to be hibernating in the AC. So we've gone to the park for a picnic with friends, visited the Austin Zoo, flown kites and spent hours just playing the yard. Today we're going to the park again, and we'll probably do the same tomorrow.
That's all for now. I'm going outside to play.
