Relentless

My youngest child has a SEVERE case of spring (or summer) fever. Relentlessly asking to go swimming or play with water balloons or run through the sprinkler, the sunshine driven requests are numerous these days. To really drive home his point, he comes home from school and immediately changes into shorts and sandals. He then runs outside for all of 3 seconds then comes back in to inform me that it is indeed warm outside. Today however, after telling him no a million times already this week, I gave up. In the grand scheme of things I realized it really wasn't that big of a deal...

Beautiful blue skies and warm rays of sun today, however...
...it does not mean that it's warm outside.
It, despite Oliver's arguments otherwise, is still February after all.

57 degrees or not this boy was happy, make that ecstatic, that I finally said yes.

He was all smiles.

Trying to get me wet.
I was having none of that! It was cold out there and the breeze was not helping.

He got to play in the water and I got to play with my camera.
We were both happy.

Are you sure that's your child? You wouldn't even get in the water when it was 70 degrees! Glad to see him having so much fun.
