Oregon doesn’t always allow us time in February to really enjoy the sun. As a matter of fact, it’s rare that we see the sun in February and, in the off-chance we do, it’s either bitter cold, windy as hell, or both.
In fact, we hit about 6 degrees over the normal for this time of the year, and were 6 degrees from hitting the record temperature for this day in all of history (or as long as records have been kept). It was a beautiful day here in the Rose City, as we hit 57 degrees.
Having a sick baby, who has gone from a cough, to a runny nose, then to a wheeze, and now to only 1/2 of her normal voice, I didn’t want to take her all the way to the park. As fun as it sounded to go to the park, it just wasn’t feasible to take her out so that Konnor and I could enjoy the sunshine.
Instead, we pulled out the activity center, grabbed the bubbles and bubble gun, and headed onto the back deck.
The brief change in scenery and that little bit of fresh air did some good for us all. Ariana didn’t seem to enjoy the sun too much in her eyes, but even she could enjoy the bubbles.
We worked with what we had, ensured Ariana wasn’t out too long, and still were able to enjoy some of this gorgeous Oregon sunshine!
