See?! It really was a pile! But it's a bit of a chilly day here, so it felt cozy, as opposed to squishy or hot or crowded. These are the days when I say that the weather feels coastal: cool and grey. A nice contrast to all the bright sunshine. Don't get me wrong, I'm loving all the sunshine, but I also like change when it comes to the weather. Too much of one thing is, well, too much.
We were excited because we finally figured out a way to hang our hammock up outside our house. All the trees in our courtyard are too far apart, but one huge spreading Maple has some large branches that are far enough apart to hang the hammock from. Anna has been asking me every day this last week to put the hammock up ever since we discovered this place. The first time we put it up was on a sunny day when all the kids that live in our whole courtyard were outside. They all piled in at once and had a blast. The only problem was that the littlest ones kept getting lost on the bottom of the pile. Today was a little more peaceful. On grey days we tend to have the courtyard to ourselves. I suppose you could say that no matter what the weather is I just like to be outside. And what better way to be outside than to snuggle up in a cozy hammock with your three little girls?
