After many weeks of below freezing temperatures we had a brief reprieve. One of the days was actually warm – spring jacket warm. Our driveway was still covered in ice and snow and our street was narrowed by the snow piled along the sides. So I packed the van with an assortment of riding vehicles and drove to a big empty parking lot. Room to run, space to ride fast and far, and fresh air to breathe. They had so much fun being outside and riding bikes.
That evening Juliana asked, “Is this Fake Spring?” I told her that it was unfortunately fake spring and she sighed and walked away.
