February in Charleston means we go from ice to pollen in about 10 days flat. I’m definitely not complaining! It’s one of the many reasons I stayed here after college.
February is one of my favorite months. I am definitely sad to see the holidays, festivities, and delicious food go! But then I get super excited, because February brings my birthday, Valentine’s Day, and Stew’s birthday all in a row!! Plus, the end of February starts spring fever! The sun is shining and the days are getting longer. That makes me one happy momma!
This spring and summer will be the best yet! Turner is so much fun, and I know he will love playing outside. For the past few days we’ve been playing in the yard and the street with his walker. This is his absolute favorite toy! He walks laps around the house all day. He even strolls up and down the street, in our yard, and in every neighbor’s yard with a giant grin on his face. He doesn’t care whose yard he trespasses in! Luckily, they all think it’s cute, for now.
Today, since it was in the 70s, we took a little lunch break and had a picnic at the beach (one of the many benefits of working from home)! I packed up our food, a blanket, and the walker because, let’s face it, that’s all we would really need!
After scarfing down his lunch, and a little bit of sand, Turner was ready to play!
He walked and crawled (because, let’s face it, I can get there much faster) all over the beach! He chased birds and screamed at the top of his lungs! He even found a few pretty seashells! He sure knows how to have a good time!
What a way to recharge my batteries for the rest of the day! A picnic with my munchkin is the best “reset” button I could ever push! It definitely got me even more excited for beach weather! Maybe this year I won’t have to be the “sand eating police” and we will just PLAY at the beach! Sending sunshine your way!!!
