Oh my sunshine

A rare day in Seattle, the sun has been out all day and a nice crisp 45 degrees.

Days like this I feel horrible for spending the day inside cleaning so after I picked A up from school I decided to take the girls to the park that is in our complex.

Reagan enjoys the slide.


I sat on the little bench that's in front of the park and just enjoyed the sunshine. It's been a while since I was able to sit in the sun and not be freezing. On normal days when the sun comes out here it gets pretty cold, the cloud cover seems to keep the heat in. 9 months since we moved I have learned you need to enjoy the sun while you can because you don't know when it's coming back for a few days.

I now understand how people can get "seasonal depression" here. It's been really hard getting use to only seeing the sun on rare occasions during the winter. I am pretty sure it's going to take me a few winters to get use to this. Hopefully once we're in a house and a little more settled it will be easier. 
It does make those days the sun is out extra special. We're looking at a couple more months until the warm weather starts and the sun will come out for longer. Until then I am sitting on our patio enjoying the sunshine because I know the next three days we're going to get rain.


Is it summer yet? I know a few littles who sure can't wait for more park time.
