Thankfully the odd hot April weather has broken here in central NC for a little while. I know that the disgusting heat and humidity of the three middle months is just around the corner, though. So while we can, we're spending a lot of time outside. This includes a lot of cooking out and eating dinner together on our Little Tikes outdoor picnic table. We probably look silly to our neighbors, but since we don't have an adult-sized outdoor table and chairs, its (ever so slightly) better than sitting right on the deck itself.
Afternoon outdoor sun on our back porch inspires me to run inside, grab the camera, and snap some photos of my boys enjoying some family time together while we get ready for dinner. With our busy days, 3 schools, and 5 different daily directions, its finding these moments together that allow us to take a deep breath and soak it all in.
