The proverbial April showers have overstayed their welcome. The rainy weather has persisted. We've had mist in the mornings and torrential downpours in the afternoon... and everything in between. So you can imagine how happy we all were yesterday when the sky cleared up and the sun came out.

The kids spent a chunk of time playing outside... and I finally put together the tricycle C got for her birthday (that we immediately passed on to J). We were hoping he'd try pedaling around on it while she cruised down the driveway on her balance bike, but he's not that coordinated yet.

Now we're looking at a big week ahead. My birthday is on Saturday! We won't be in Boston for a game at Fenway as we have been in years past... But I'm looking forward to having friends over for Pizza Night for an early celebration.

Then, of course, Mother's Day is a week from today. Let's see if one of the gifts on my Mother's Day Gift Guide arrives at our house in the next few days... While I watch for UPS, why don't you check out what I've planned for dinner at our house this week? ;-)
