Everything tastes better when you eat it outside....

The weather here the past few days has been perfect. Around 70, a nice breeze, not alot of bugs out, yet, and the pollen hasn't become unbearable. It's hard to believe we had SNOW a week ago!

These perfect days are few and far between, so we have to make the most of them. My favorite part is having windows open in the house, especially at night when I am sleeping! And then last night Libby wanted to have our dinner outside on a blanket on the lawn, but I talked her into the (covered) back porch instead. Our back porch isn't really big enough for alot of patio furniture (although I wish it was), but we drug an old table and some chairs out there and ate outside. I even cooked hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill, so it was the perfect picnic food. And, we also had CORN (I like corn, just not the word) and fresh pineapple. And we used a bright, "Springy" table cloth I got recently for $1.00 at Old Time Pottery. It was really nice.

I am sharing this picture just to embarrass Sarah (my favorite past time)...... :-)And then the kids played on the swing set a while, but I couldn't figure out how to adjust my camera to take pictures from the porch, with the movement and the darkening sky... this is all I came up with (ha ha):

Sounds/Looks like a lovely evening. The bugs are out here - the gnats are HORRIBLE! We couldn't eat outside right now. We live too close to water - and it is gnat season, and they have arrived in swarms. Can I move there?
