Just a Swingin'

Well, one weekend we have snow the next weekend we have 70 degree weather- love that GA weather! We have been wanting to utilize our big backyard for quite some time now by getting Davis a swingset; so as an early Easter present we bit the bullet and got one this weekend! We bought it on Saturday morning & labeled the parts on Saturday night (though you would have thought we were playing hours and hours of bingo or battleship- G4, R7, etc. Davis was so excited about it that he hardly slept at all on Saturday night (ok- maybe it's the ear infection that was diagnosed Monday morning at the Dr's office but I"m sure visions of the swing set kept him awake too)! Can I just say that I"m so very thankful to have a handy husband? By Sunday afternoon the swingset had been assembled and Davis was exploring this new world outside!
Here Davis is reading the instructions to his Daddy!
Now he is wondering "When are you ever going to be done with this? It is time to play!!!!"

Next he is doing his happy dance... I must say he's got somes moves folks :)The final product minus the roof/tarp that goes on top of the fort....Matt teaching Davis how to climb...Going down the slide for the first time!So happy with his new surroundings!

The strangest thing happened this past Sunday! We were out eating breakfast when all of the sudden we noticed that there were HUGE snowflakes falling from the sky! Now I understand that to some (ok, maybe even most) this is not a big deal- but ya'll here in the great state of Georgia this is a rare occasion!!!! So rare that when we got home one of the first things we did was let Davis go outside & play for a few minutes...

At first, he wasn't that interested.... It's hard to put down a good book!

Side Note: If you ever see the Sesame Street board books that Target sells every now & then for a $1 they are worth every penny & then some. Davis can't get enought of them and they teach him shapes, colors, foods, etc...

However, it only took a moment for Davis to toss the book in the snow and realize the magnitude of what he was seeing.... snow in the south!

After a few few moments, we decided that we would go back inside. We figured the snow would stop shortly.... But it ended up snowing almost all day! Our household loved every minute of it!

We later took Davis back out after naptime to have just a little bit more fun!

And of course, he cried when we brought him back in - red nose and all!
