The Sun Finally Shines on Syracuse!

After months and months of snow, coldness, and cloudy skies the sun finally makes an appearance! Although we have had random glimpses of warmth in the past few weeks, it has been a glorious weekend. We tried to find a new waterfall at Fillmore Glen State park, and even though we were unsuccessful at seeing the falls we managed to have a great time.
Looks like Kris needs to escape from the hospital and hit the gym a little more often. Or at least all the nurses need to stop trying to get his attention by sneaking him cookies and donuts!
Spiderman, spiderman, doing whatever a spider can... Joshua is part monkey and part spider and part just crazy.
Nothing is more sweet than 2 sisters having a blast together! They were laughing so hard I thought they would fall off the teeter totter.

This is how Gabriella wanted to walk down the trail. She squeaked and pulled at my neck until we were close to Kris and then she grabbed a hold and wanted us to continue on. This little girl thinks she can have whatever she wants, and she is usually right. This little river went right over the road and the kids really wanted to stick their feet in. I did too:) Bree wanted to step into a deeper part and when I told her it was too deep and that her clothes get wet she fixed the problem lifting up her shirt. Almost a good idea. She loved the water and did not want to get out. It was a fun day and it was so nice to be in the sun again!

Yay for warm weather! It looks like you guys had lots of fun. Maddie and I were reading your post together and Maddie thinks you have really cool parks there and is jealous! Me too...

How fun for you guys! We're still struggling to get spring/summer weather here, too. One day it's 70, the next, it's 40. CRAZY!!!

We went to Filmore Glen last spring and didn't ever come across that playground. Did you see the big swimming hole? We should go this summer. I absolutely love the picture of the girls together.

Fun fun fun! We discovered Chittenango Falls State Park two weekends ago where you can go right by the top of the falls, or hike to the bottom. We just found it by accident and ending up spending the afternoon and had tons of fun. Spring is the BEST here in New York, isn't it? I think we're going to check out Fillmore because that climbing wall Josh was on looks amazing, falls or no falls!

Jamie, I love reading your blog!! Every time I check your updates I can't stop laughing at how animated your writing is and how well you get your voice across. Your life seems pretty crazy and exciting and hectic, and it makes me a little more eager for that time of my life to come (even though we're really enjoying the way it is right now)! I just thought you should know that you've got a blog admirer in me!
