Spring Is Here...

It was gorgeous day in Florida today... So I decided to go for a run with my girls pushing the stroller. I do it once a week when the weather is nice and run for 3 miles with my girls; from our house to a nearest shopping plaza and back.

Usually, my oldest Ju Ju rides her bicycle (and she has no training wheels now) and Soapy is in her stroller as I push and run, except Ju Ju's toe was hurt, she couldn't pedal today. So I had to push two girls in the stroller which was rough!!! I couldn't believe how easy it is when Ju Ju rides her own bicycle.

Anyway.

As we were running the street, we realized the sprinkler was going full force in front of us. Bunch of sprinklers were spraying water and the girls and I were laughing so hard as we ran through it... The girls were screaming for joy and oh, it was really cute.

They said, "Mommy, one more time!" - Of course I said no...

But, because it was soooo hot when we got to the plaza, I decided to take the girls to Rita's to have some Italian ice. We got two chocolate ice. Ju Ju and I shared a cup and Soapy? She finished the whole thing all by herself!!! She was soo proud and her mommy? Not so much because it was very sweet and all the sugar she ate made her mommy nervous. But we had a very nice time... This is when I feel the happiest.

Oh by the way, we were able to run through the sprinklers again on the way back. Yay! LOL

Aw spring time is here, at least here in Florida..

I hope spring is coming to your way very soon, too, and warm your heart...

Say,"Icceeeee!!!"
Mommy, this ice is so good...

I don't even know why I took this photo.
I guess I just wanted to show you how long (short) my legs are.. LOL

So cute! I hate storllers so I can only imagine the pain in the arse it would be to push two kids in one, while running! Your pictures are super cute, as usual!

I love doing the fun things with kids, like getting out of the house and getting ice cream. Anything that spoils them just a little bit! :-)

What lovely mother-daughter bonding time. Who knows, maybe this will be one of those memories that Soap has when she grows up, she'll say "I vaguely remember one time when I was little - we ran through sprinklers and had ices."

So precious.

Ah - I love spring. But as you well know, spring for us in the South only lasts about two weeks before the blistering heat of summer.

Break out the bikini!
