You know you're a Minnesotan when, you bust out the bikes as soon as the ice melts off the road. It was 40 and wonderful today. Cloudy and misty and grey, but wonderful. The kids played outside and ran and laughed. We biked and scootered. They played tag. 

The fresh air did everyone good. It was wonderful. 

Today, as that first teaser of a nice day always does, left me itching for more. For the days that we can spend at the playground all morning, swinging and laughing and running. Spring is coming, and while I'm trying my hardest not to wish away the days, appreciating the here and now of cold, dreary weather is hard. 

Blue skies are coming. Until then, we'll enjoy biking in snowpants.
