Winters in Portland can be dreary. Yesterday was a solid sheet of grey skies, and we fully expected today to be the same. But, as the day went on, the skies began to clear, and by the time I left work there were blue skies and beautiful sunshine. Just going home wasn't going to be enough today.
After a quick stop at home to pick up bikes and helmets, we headed to our favorite neighborhood park. As the sun began to set, the boys ran and rode and climbed and laughed. I chased and teased and kissed scraped knees. It was just what we needed.
