Spring in January?

We are confused here.  Did we skip winter and head straight into spring?  My calendar says January, but it feels more like mid-March outside.  I think the high for today was near 70 degrees.  It was a bit windy (always), but the sun was out and jackets were shed.  We couldn't resist being outside today.  Lucas and I played at a playground near my gym this morning, then when the girls got home from school this afternoon, we rode our bikes to our neighborhood park for more fun in the sun.  The girls instantly went into "imaginative play mode" by pretending they were pirates on a ship.  I kept hearing them say things like, "Drop the anchor!" and "Ahoy!"  This drama was unfolding while Lucas spent his time doing the following things:

(Hannah was pretending to be an injured pirate by the way)
And watching

Tomorrow we plan to spend more time outside before a cold front moves in mid-week bringing us back to the reality of January.  Perhaps we'll make it through winter without a major ice storm this year?  Knock on wood?

I pray every night for it to stay like this all winter! If this warm winter was brought on from such a hot summer...well, I would say it was worth it. I think. ;)
