Enjoying the Daylight

Afternoon Sun Pictures, Images and Photos

I was some what looking forward to "Springing Forward" this weekend because I really enjoy how much more daylight you get each day. I don't look forward to how it affects sleep schedules, naps and dinner times. But the upside for the first day, was before dinner tonight, we took the kids for an early evening walk around the neighborhood.
Miss K and Little E rode their bikes, while the hubs and I walked along pushing them when they would get stuck in a soft patch of dirt. Even our dog Bella joined us and enjoyed the exercise and smells along the way. It was a gorgeous spring day and what a better way to enjoy the sunshine.
I forgot to take photos of the kids on their bikes and I even had the cell phone with me, but it would have been pretty tough with the dog yanking on her leash, which she did the entire walk.
Unfortunately, dinner was later because NO ONE was hungry even though the clock said 7:30, our stomachs said otherwise. The kids went to bed only 20 minutes late but it took them an hour to fall asleep.
UGH. It's going to be a LONG week. Thankfully it's Spring Break in our county and we have time to adjust. As long as I don't slack off and sleep in on my days off.
What did you do today to use the extended daylight outside?

It was a gorgeous day yesterday- we were outside. My kids have today off, so I'm hoping for a quick adjustment!
