Jon woke up irritated around 5 a.m. this morning and growled, "What is that noise?" I listened and glanced outside the window. That "awful" sound was birds chirping in the trees outside. We laughed, slept a few more hours, and re-woke to a sunny day. Praise God! Blue sky. Warm temps. Short sleeve shirts!! Beside our zoo day last weekend, we haven't have much sunshine this spring. I dusted off my sunglasses and watched the girls jump on the trampoline that Jon recently brought out of hibernation. This was our first full winter in Oregon, and even though the cloudy and rainy days weren't as bad as we'd anticipated, we're grateful for the sunshine. And we're all hoping that it's finally here to stay...
