My husband has been looking for a sunny place for us to go for the past couple of days. It's really sweet of him because he knows I need some sunshine in my life to stay balanced. He searched as far as California (not that we were going this week). Since all his destinations turned out with a weeks worth of rain in the forecast we all gave up the search.
Despite the gloomy forecast we decided to take toddler out for a joy ride after his little run-in with my mascara. After I found him sitting on the carpet with black hands I realized that my little dude hasn't been outside for many days since he came down with a slight cold and attitude problem.
Our little ride around Snohomish made me also realize how I've changed over the years. Whenever we drove by a cute cottage house I'd jump up and down in my seat and yell, "STOP!" just so that I could take a picture of that house we were passing by. Hubby and Toddler didn't appreciate that part so I really had to tone things down. I need to move into a cute big cottage/farm house, have a beautiful garden, a potting shed, studio, farm and lots of pretty land, but it has to be some place where the sun shines more then 5 times a month.
After everyone napped, ate and I crafted guess what happened?! The SUN came out to pay us a little visit! We were so shocked! I mean it had rained non-stop since last night. We grabbed our things and out the door we went to the nearest park.
Toddler was so happy to be outside. He played in the water. Ran all over the place. Chased lots of ducks and was over all a very happy boy. The sun didn't stay out long, but we did manage to have a great time at the park while it did.
