When our weather finally let up, it was out the door he went to play with Tahoe (or "Sea Turtle" as Sweet Pea calls him since we're learning about sea animals right now.) Running, jumping, making "sand castles" out of grass was just what he needed to get some of that boy-energy out! He made it look so fun, I took Layla-Bug out for a few minutes of sunshine too.
To my surprise, she enjoyed the sun, although it made her sleepy (added bonus!!). And for me, a little bit of sun was just what I needed to get a burst of energy to power through the rest of the day! What a difference a little Vitamin D makes-- for the whole family!
Lesson Learned: Go outside as much as possible when the sun is shining! That will make up for staying inside on rainy days.
