the way summer should be

This new spring weather has totally changed my outlook about living in Utah.  Not to mention the fact that there are flowers everywhere and everything is totally green.

I mean, really.

If I were still living in Phoenix right now, it would be over 100 degrees every day.  And even though I still miss AZ like crazy, this beautiful weather is nothing to sneeze at.  [Well, ok.  I take that back.  Well played, Allergies, well played.]

All this beautiful weather means that we go for walks and hikes as a family all the time.  They may not be very long [hello, three-month-old baby], but they are just long enough to keep my endorphins at an ultimate high.

Let's have a look at the evidence, shall we?

The first couple pictures don't look very green, do they?  But it gets greener, I promise.  Carry on.

Don't worry, we put lots of baby sunscreen on those chubby baby legs.

Yeah my hair looks kinda weird there.  Eh, whatever.  We're all friends here, right?

And then last Monday, we spent the evening at Jeremy and Alison's in their backyard roasting marshmallows in the fire-pit, petting bunnies, cuddling with their dog, and feeding their goat.  I was in heaven.  Heaven, I say.  We also spent some time trying to convince Tim's visiting sister, Jeanie, to move up to Utah.  Though I'm not sure my recounting of the winter months did much to help.  But hopefully we were successful regardless!

This summer loveliness makes me all nostalgic for my summers in Prescott, AZ growing up.  Beautiful weather, greenery, and adventures.

Just the way summer should be.  Mosquito bites and all.

Utah does have its perks, even if I pretend it doesn't :)
