Oooooh, this is fun.

Hey, I can hear an echo.

Hey, I can hear an echo.

Don’t worry. While the children played, the adults took full advantage of such a beautiful day.

Don't disturb me, kid.

Believe it or not, just a week ago, we were dealing with several days of subfreezing temperatures and snow. In case you had forgotten, Hu-Dad has some photos of the weather over at his photography blog.

Q-tip loves hanging out in the yard, particularly on a rainy, muddy day like Sunday—even if it does mean he needs an undercarriage dog wash.
