We don't hibernate

Not in Austin, Texas we don't! We're barely aware that it's January...Winter in these parts. Just take a look at today's weather forecast: Sunny. Warm. High of 81f. We are aware that there's snow somewhere up North and stuff, but it really doesn't affect us. In fact, the other afternoon, Heather and Ryland got a group of us together at a super fab park to play hopscotch...or as Mia sometimes refers to as popscotch.

I don't mean to paint a picture that it's all a bed of roses down here...Cedar Fever has hit..and hit HARD! For two weeks, my eyes have been swollen & itchy, nose clogged or runny...and the sneezes? Forgetaboutit! So, many of us are taking our antihistamines and braving the outdoors by hitting the pollen head on...today? Oh, on our beautiful sunny day? The pollen count is estimated to be High (1,499). So, we'll be hibernating :)

Although your allergies sound terrible all those outside shots at the park look wonderful. I hope you can breathe again soon. :) Those hopscotch pictures are great.

I love these action shots! Great fun at the park in the winter. Allergies suck...although I dont get them as much, my hubby gets them and he is miserable.
