Having Fun in the California Sun

The weather has been so GOOD to us here. I had a hard time wanting to do school work with the boys so....we headed out back with all the other Cupcakes and had us some fun. Life can not be ALL work and rigid can it? We finished up with school after an early dinner.
Rainbows & Avocado Trees

Please Mr. Sunshine, don't go away.

Ah, it looks WONDERFUL there! We live in WI and it is SO cold, the high temp is like 5 degrees today. So nice to see SOMEONE is warm! We were in Los Angeles alot last year for my husbands work and it was so nice, even in August! Enjoy some sun for me okay??

Oh to live where the sun is shining and the grass is green instead of Michigan in the winter! Today the high is supposed to be below zero. Your blog is beautiful!

Oh how wonderful!! for so many reasons too :) Kids and "play" just go perfect together :) I think they can learn just as much from playing as the can from a book :) and the other reason your photos are so wonderful is, oh my gosh! It looks like summer there!! Lucky you!! as I'm typing this we have 3 inches of snow and its about 10 degrees! Im so jealous :) Spring can not come soon enough for me!!

Hope you have a great week and thanks so much as always for stopping in and leaving such sweet words!

Enjoy your weather! :)

Hugs, Cynthia

I miss Avocado trees sooooo bad, but I get the snow as a trade off :)

This weather is spoiling us isn't it! I'm so enjoying it though! I've been coming home from work and BBQing every night! I don't want this to end!

Oh my goodness your children are adorable! I cannot believe the weather is that nice right now. Not fair! We are freezing our tails off. lol Brrr... I am so happy for you that you can enjoy the outdoors with the children. Kids make us stop and enjoy the moment, don't they?
Have a lovely weekend,
