There's nothing like ice cream on a hot day...
There is nothing like spring! The sky was blue, the few clouds in the sky were fluffy and white, the grass is starting to turn green, buds are forming on the trees, flowers are blooming. And - the best part - 80 degree temperatures are not unheard of! That was today. I couldn't have imagined a nicer afternoon, particularly because Caleb and Camille decided this would be the day they would play nicely ALL DAY! It was heaven.
The kids were so well-behaved that I took them down to McDonald's for an ice cream cone. We ate them in the back yard and then spent the afternoon playing in the sandbox, running around and playing croquet with some kids in the neighborhood. Camille decided to wear her crown all day and for the most part only answered to "Princess LuLu" (a character from our most recent round of library books), but she was loveable and cooperative. Caleb was a very good listener and was really helpful around the house and playing with his sister. I couldn't have been more pleased. If only the whole summer would be like this!
