Early birthday gift

Friday night, Jake had his good friend Sam over to spend the night since Sam will be gone for spring break and therefore miss Jake's birthday this coming Saturday. I think it worked out well this way that they got to spend such quality one-on-one time together because they truly were and are best friends. It was one of the hardest parts of moving last year to know that Jake would no longer be at school and playing sports with Sam. They really had bonded. At least we are only 2 towns over and still have the chance to get the boys together every so often.

And we had absolutely gorgeous weather over the weekend with temps ranging between the high 70's and low 80's. It finally really felt like spring. It was a little hard to reconcile our beautiful weekend with the images of snow and the devastating tornadoes that struck North Carolina and neighboring states.

The weather was so perfect on Saturday that I don't think the kids spent more than a fleeting moment inside. They were playing in the little pool, jumping in the trampoline, riding their bikes, having a picnic lunch and just generally being active and having fun.

After Sam left, Jake had baseball pictures and the hit-a-thon after which we were all pretty wiped out. We spent the evening relaxing and watching the newest Harry Potter out on Blu-Ray, gearing up for the final installment, which comes out this summer. Squeal. It was pretty much a perfect spring day at home.
