The weather has been in the mid to high 20s (25C = 77F) a pretty big jump from 0 - +5C! All the leaves are starting to really come out and there are flowers blooming.
I think we're planning on going back out to the park tomorrow to do the garbages and then I don't know what the plan for the rest of the day is.
