Oh Mister Sun

Today, we woke up to sunshine.
That might not seem like a big deal to you living in sunny AZ
(or really, any state that isn’t Ohio)
but sunshine is rare here in the cold upper midwest.
I took advantage of the sun
and let Riker run around a bit this afternoon.

This boy would live outside if I let him.
He loves to touch all the cars.
And he tries to eat rocks and dead leaves.
He has a smile on his face the entire time…
until I open our door and try to force him back inside.
Then he stomps his feet and screams and cries.
We live for sunny days.
We are eager for spring.
If it snows again, I think we both might cry.
