Getting Away

The weather around here has been nuts.  Last month we had “Juneuary,” this month… Febru-summer?  Februly?  At any rate, it’s been nice.  Not actually “summer nice,” but “spring nice.”  A couple of weekends ago, I rounded up all the boys and told them to get in the car, we were going for a drive.

They would have been happy to stay home and tear up the  house and yard, but mama was going stir-crazy.

We hot-footed it down to Deception Pass and Rosario Beach for some rock throwing and stick hauling.

You would have thought that we never let Charles and Jamie out of their cages before.  They ran and jumped and threw and climbed and generally behaved like escaped prisoners seeing sunlight for the first time in ten years.

Winter gets you down, I guess, even when it’s an especially mild one.  That, and we don’t ever go on little day trips like this.  We should totally do it much more often.

A good reminder to me that getting out of the house, crawling out of our normal routine, is good and good for us.
