Good Day Sunshine

I guess it's been raining a lot around here. Today we were driving in the car and the sun, in all it's brilliant glory, made a full appearance from behind some very grey storm clouds. I practically caused a collision. "Zöe!" I cried, "Look! It's the sunshine! Isn't it beautiful? Doesn't it feel warm and nice on your face?" In the rearview mirror I watched her look quizzically out the window, catch a golden beam of light on her face, flinch, and squeeze her eyes shut. She buried her face in the side of her carseat and began to cry, like a vampire shriveling from the first rays of the sunrise, "Oh...OW!! Eyes! OW! Eyes! Eyes! Eyes! No!" Has it really been that long?

I had a similar experience with Peri in our kitchen today. While sitting at the table eating lunch she started shrieking "Stop it light! Stop it light!" Yes, it HAS been that long.

She is such a cutie!

Congrats on the sunshine. I'd be in a serious funk if it had been that long since I saw those precious rays.

Is Zoe a cutie pie, or what! Look at that sweet face :) Yes, it's been forever. I think I need to take some vitamin D supplements. I don't think I can handle this rain/darkness much longer.
