SPT – Weather or Not


From Lelly: ahh, Springtime. (or, shall I say, "ahh-choo, Springtime!) despite the fact that my world seems sunny and warm these days, i am acutely aware that across this country (and beyond!) Winter is not willing to give up it's foothold. and in other places, Summer seems to be kicking Spring to the curb before she even has a chance to bloom!!
amy m has shared some of her thoughts about how the weather affects her outlook on things. i feel much the same way. how about your? what's your weather these days? is it putting you in a bright, cheerful mood or making you want to pull the covers up over your head?
join us on Tuesday with your spt and your weather forecast. bring your umbrellas and rain boots, your sunscreen and floppy hats, but feel free to leave the pollen at home. we've got enough of that here...

Right now we are enjoying perfect AZ weather!

Sometimes I joke that I run on solar power. I feel so much better when the sun is out and the temperature is in the mid-80’s. It may have something to do with my fibromyalgia, but when the weather starts to warm up my body doesn’t hurt as much. Those cloudy dreary days belong somewhere else and not in our “Valley of the Sun”!

It’s a great time to spend the day at the park with the kiddos, so that is what we did on Saturday.

There was bike riding.




Some football/soccer games.


There was also time to just hang out.


Some of us might have been totally HOT, but that has nothing to do with the weather!


There was even time to pose for a picture and make Mom happy.


I am loving our weather now…


and I don’t really mind that summer and our 100 degree weather is right around the corner!


  1. I have always enjoyed spring weather in Az, :) Enjoy it, before it gets to hot to play outside.

  2. Love the pic of all the kids on the stairs, SO CUTE! I'm also enjoying this weather, but I DO mind that 100 degree days are coming. UGH!

  3. We are in a cold "snap" at least it is for So. CAL...especially here. I want your weather...we had it a little over spring break. And yep...100 + weather is fast approaching. Gotta love A/C

  4. It snowed here today in Utah. Grrr. (and brrr.)

  5. AWESOME kiddo shot on the playground! it's so great that you got the whole family in on the act.

    i agree, sunshine on my shoulders and all that... feels so good.

  6. Wonderful lookin' family. I love the step photo also. Keep enjoying the beautiful weather in your neck of the woods.

  7. LUCKY!!!

    It was windy and cold here today!


  8. The weather has been so up and down here lately, I don't know what to expect except for maybe a cold.
    Today was lovely and warm, yesterday was a bit breezy and chilly. Who knows what tomorrow holds, I think it's supposed to be rain.
    Love your park pictures. SO fun!

  9. Holy Cow...that looks lile a jakes ladder!

  10. Seriously loving our weather too. And it just dawned on me that I can take my laptop outside. Best of both worlds.
