Warm Weather and Snot Bubbles

Today was magical. If you know me at all, then you know I bear a grudge against winter. We don't get along. I hate being cold, and having to bundle up every time I go outside. I don't know if you have ever been to Boone, but it's been labeled the "Colorado" of the South, for a good reason. 

You get the idea, right? Brr, those pictures give me chills. 
All of those pictures were taken on campus, and that is what I have been walking through to get to class all winter....not fun!

Today, however, God blessed us with a beautiful January day that felt much like spring with 55-60 degree weather! It was glorious I tell you! I get so excited over the first warm day after months of frigid weather. Probably a little too excited. I had the hubs wanting to put me in a choke hold from hopping, and dancing around the apartment, wanting to go outside. Seriously, I'm not kidding, I was literally dancing around the apartment. 

Kynlee thought I was a little overzealous too, she was still wearing her jammies and bed-head, when I was ready to go. 
She finally caught onto the idea, and was just as excited as me!

A walk on the Greenway seemed like the perfect family-fun-day activity (yes, whenever Corey is off work, and we have nothing to do, we automatically declare that day family-fun-day).

 She always makes the best faces when we cross this bridge because of  how bumpy it is. 

 This is what happens when I give Corey the camera....
 ...and this is me calling him out on it. 
 Boone seems to come alive with the first hint of warm weather, and I love it. 
I often tell Corey my absolute favorite day of the year is the first warm day of spring, and the Sanford Mall on campus is packed with students lounging, tight-rope-walking, and throwing frisbee. It makes my heart jump for joy in a way that I can't explain. It's Prozac, Baby!
 {I realize this day is still quite a few weeks away, but a girl can dream right?}

Even though this weekend was just a tease, and the cold weather will be back in a few days, we still enjoyed ourselves. 

{I was determined to get a picture of her smiling on this bench, but she had this look the whole time because she was so distracted by everyone walking by, and she had to study each and every person, dog, and bike.}

Today was a brilliant day, that's all there is to it. 

Oh! I almost forgot about the snot bubbles!
