The Great Escape

Escape???  Escape???  Who escaped?  Ahhh, yes, that would be ME!  I had not been out of our eensy weensy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini town in waaaayyyy too long.  The kids had a whopping ONE day off for winter break so we left town for the weekend.   We have had non stop winter in our corner of Monatana and yet (grumbles under breath) most of our relatives in Montana have had a sneak peak of spring.  So we packed up our stuff and headed to my moms house, 4 and a half hours away and 35 degrees warmer…..March 042 March 043 March 044 March 049

Saturday morning we took advantage of weather that we haven’t seen in many months. The chance to play outside in the fresh air, no snow, no coats, no hats, no gloves…. ahhh, it was fantastic!

My son is loving being outside with the ball too. We are enjoying the weather change here too. The snow is melting and it feels good. WE have had our Dog since October. She has been having headaches for over a year. I can't thing of anything.

Glad you could get away and get warmed up. My daughter thought it was time for bare feet and flip-flops and wore hers the other day. I think she has decided it's not quite there yet.

Great pictures. My favorite is the second top one! Talk about action. lol

On Saturday we had beautiful weather. I washed both pickups and the tool trailer. Yes I'm a good wifey! Then I spray painted the wire fence that goes around my flower gardens. It was great not having to wear my parka!

glad you got a break.
when we started coming down to TN (in Dec) our kids thought it was great.. no more bundling up to go outside. leaving -20* and having 35* was a heat wave to us! Now we have to leave 60-70* for 30-40*.. not as much fun! but its always good to get home!
