Here Comes the Sun

Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
and I say it's all right

Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
and I say it's all right

Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been clear
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,
and I say it's all right It's all right
Music and Lyrics by George Harrison,
From the Beatles' album "Abbey Road," 1969

The last couple of days have been gorgeous! It's so nice to get a taste of spring weather early in the season...a little sampling of what is soon to come. My sweet husband and I took our dogs to the park yesterday, and they had a wonderful time playing in the warm sunshine and making new friends. There were many people out enjoying the weather, children were on the playground, some teenagers were playing a pickup game of basketball at the nearby courts, and a couple of young adults were playing Frisbee. People were out walking their dogs and just enjoying the warmer weather. It was heaven!

Max is so excited to be out in open space where he can run and play! He follows Michael everywhere!
Molly's favorite toy is a good tennis ball to run after! She also likes a good Frisbee and tried to steal one from some of the people playing in the park. Thankfully, she wasn't successful.
"Yum, yum, yum, I love this toy!"
Taking a break from playing catch.
Molly follows Michael up the steps of the slide.

But she backs out at the last minute, so only Max is brave enough to slide Michael's arms (otherwise, he may still be up there!).
What a happy family! And you may be wondering where I am. Well, I was staying behind the camera since I hadn't bothered to put on any makeup.
Here you see why I was staying behind the camera! This is our self-portrait on the swings. Michael took it, so half my face is cut off!

Molly and Max were so excited when some of the children came over to make friends!

Looks like Molly is ready to play a little more catch!

Max and his two new pals.
Look at those two run! Wow, are they having fun with new friends!

With Molly, it's all about the toys.

And here's the result of a long afternoon of play. Both puppies and children are tuckered out!

...and Molly and Max had a very good night's sleep.

Looks like you had a lot of fun, I wish things were warmer here... still snow!
I love that song too, my mum used to listen to the beatles constantly when we were small and it always brings back memories ^-^!
I needed a dose of sunshine this morning!

It looks like a good time was had by all! I love those first glimpses of spring. It's so cold and windy here today. I have the fireplace going! It will be nice when the bulbs start peeking up. Even though it will still mean a couple of months of winter, it still will give us hope.
