so much for winter {Spring bucket list}

One day we woke up this week and BAM, just like that it was 80 degrees. It's hard to believe that we were bundled from head to toe at the park (mid day) just last week! With high 80's in the forecast for the next week and a half, I find myself scrambling to soak up the great outdoors before it's too late... apparently triple digit heat is just around the corner :( Enough of my whining- here's what's on the agenda before Springs ends as abruptly as winter did!

Mia's Shirt c/o Loved By Hannah And Eli James' Pants c/o Osh Kosh

1- Go hiking! We have gone out twice so far and Mia absolutely loves it! She out hikes me right now (I blame her chunky brother, ha ha!)

2- Run a 5k.

3- Go to the pool. I don't think I'll be braving the pool by myself with 2 littles very often this summer, so I'm thinking now is the time to do it, while it's still cool enough for James to hang out in the shade. 

4- But just in case I'm not brave enough to take them by myself... buy a new kiddie pool for our backyard! Mia can swim to her hearts content, and we might even introduce James to swimming that way ;)

5- Teach Mia to write her name with chalk. That means lots of time outside with the chalk before it's too hot!

6- Go to the zoo as much as possible before our pass expires, and buy a freaking icee one of those visits! I want one every time but talk myself out of it. I need to splurge, just once! Where is my "pregnant" excuse when I need it?! HA!

7- Basically just spend as much time outdoors as possible! And when we're inside? Nap time! Taking more naps is definitely on my bucket list!

It's hard to believe that it's winter weather for the rest of the country... but soon enough you will all be enjoying gorgeous weather outside while we are hiding in our freezer until next November ;)

So jealous of your weather, dear friend. I really need to plan a trip out there to see you. It would be a blast xoxo!

It's crazy right?! I can't believe it's been so hot this week! Trying to soak in as much outside/park time as we can :)

Um so jealous it's so warm out there already! Mother Nature apparently forgot we were FL. It was 38 when I left this morning. And yay for zoo visits! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

What a great list! Unfortunately for us, it is NOWHERE near Spring today as we have windchills in the single digits this morning! EEk!!

I am so jealous that your winter is over, I need summer. I won't be jealous when you reach those triple digits though you can keep those woof that would be rough on my pale skin!

According to Kiki said...

Oh girl I will take 80! (; Haha. I know I say that now, but I'm sure if I actually had to live with it, I've totally wish for snow. Good luck with your list!

80??!? Ughh how I wish we had that sun! We had snow yesterday, more today and another 3-5 inches on Sunday. YUCK!

It's always so crazy to read posts like this because it is below freezing and I haven't seen grass in weeks here! I CANT WAIT for spring!

I love the idea of being outside as much as possible during the spring too! It's nice to enjoy the warm weather before it gets unbearably hot! and that's so awesome that your daughter loves to hike!
