ON THE PLAYGROUND


sometimes the city can feel like two very different people to me. in the summertime it is all free and easy, you wear as little as possible and pack as light as you can and spend entire days outside. the rest of the year you trudge around in your black down coats and rush through your errands as quickly as possible. so a stolen spring day like today is a remarkable thing. the city becomes its two selves all at once--a little bit warm and free and just a little bit heavy coats left unbuttoned. i rather like that.

we celebrated the return of the sunshine today by taking a nice long detour from our daily errands and heading straight for our favorite swing set in the park. huck loves the swings more than he loves just about anything out there worth loving. almost more than he loves his bagels, but not quite. (he kept a tight grip on that bagel of his all afternoon.) i snapped some (a million) photos while we were there, because i am an instagram abuser.



we swang and slid and then picked up the apple cider vinegar and went home where i made dinner while huck napped away the last of the sunshine.

not half bad, february!

IN CONCLUSION: huck was dressed like such a hipster all day that brandon thought it would be funny if i made a hipster music video out of all the little videos i'm always taking. i told him it was a terrible idea. which meant of course that i had to do it.


so there it is.

    p.s. You should frame the picture of huck smiling with the sunshine in the back - beautiful and perfect for the mantel :)

  25. As soon as you said that about the hipster video I laughed out loud! How very hipster indeed. Huck is so cute and those cheeks are amazing. He got your face and his daddy's coloring. Perfection!

  28. He is beyond cute. Also, weirdest coincidence: I paused Pumped Up Kicks to watch the video and when I pressed play I was very confused trying to figure out how I had (or so I thought) un-paused my music.

  32. YAy!! I love when there's videos!

    P.S.

    We just got good weather here in Texas and I couldn't be happier. I broke out my shorts that it took me 2 months to find last year and came into the office beaming like the sun itself. I got so excited that I completely forgot that i'm allergic to caffeine and drank half a diet coke. Ahh summer. :)
