Fair Weather Permitting

Yesterday was warm. 

The sun was shining.

There was no wind.

The temperature got up to fifty-ish.

It was the perfect opportunity to get out our bikes.

I love their faces.

Pure. Joy.

Of course, today we woke up to rain, wind, and some white stuff. Couldn't distinguish if it was hail, or a pitiful attempt at snow.

(I just checked the weather. Apparently it's called SLEET.)

Being that it is a dark and dreary day, we had a late start to our morning.

Coincidentally, schools are out at noon.

So I decided that we should just have a pajama day and skip school altogether.

Priorities, I have them.


  1. SO jealous. So jealous! Our bikes are put away in the shed, and we probably won't see our grass again until mid-May sometime...

  2. pajama day? I want one....although it's too warm and sunny here to enjoy it. ;)

  3. I love that you let them all stay home. You. Rock.

  4. You are a great mom. What is that saying about, "Make hay while the sun shines" or something? Well, great job making hay while the sun was shining. Nothing like bike riding in the crisp and warmer air.

    I love that you had a pajama day, too. Coolest mom ever, you are.

  5. I have priorities too! Except...they include the internet and ignoring my children. Dang it.

    I have an award for you on my blog. I hope that it makes you smile. : )

  6. Soooooooooo jealous. I am cold. I don't like to be cold. I love the outdoors. Glad someone got to enjoy it. Waaaa...

  7. It's sunny and 70 here in Texas today. I'm sincerely going to miss the warm winters when I move to Colorado.

  8. I've just gotta applaud you - way to put the important things first!

  9. Sleet is one of the many reasons I am thrilled to be in Arizona right now. :)

  10. I'm a little further south than you are. We too had the Beautiful day, and then bleh..... it wasn't sleeting but it was gray rainy and cold.
