Wordless Wednesday *Linky* – Outside Fun

by Carrie with Children with 52 comments

The weather was so great this past week, we played outside and got to wear shorts!  I’m not sure why Maggie felt the need to wear her empty bookbag too.


  • Melissa

    She is so adorable! I love her shirt and I’m jealous of the shorts! Can’t wait for her and Hayden to meet!

    • Carrie with Children

      I’m excited for our little ones to meet …and their mommies too! 🙂

  • Mrs H

    what a sweetie pie!

  • amber

    We are loving this beautiful weather too. 82 today ~ your little one is beauiful. Just linked up thanks for sharing.


  • Heather D

    She looks ready for school!

  • Steph

    So cute!

  • mizhelle

    what a cutie! and it looks like a nice weather too!

    • Carrie with Children

      Thank you! We’ve lucked out with some really great weather lately!

  • Amy @ babybabylemon

    Such a cutie!!!

  • Marilyn @ A Lot of Loves

    Shorts! We’re a long way from those.

    • Carrie with Children

      I think shorts for us is just temporary…it’s going to get “cold” again next week!

  • Mimi

    She is adorable!! We are clothes in snow pants, boots, scarves, hats, mittens, and coats here in MN. Totally jealous of that photo!!

    • Carrie with Children

      Thanks! I think this warm weather is just a teaser, it’s supposed to be “cold” next week…mid 50’s. 😉 Sometimes I wish we had snow to play in, if it makes you feel any better!

    It really is a sweet picture. Hey, my daughter loves to carry around her backpack. I have to say it got warm here, but not warm enough for shorts.

  • Becky

    Well, of course, she is an explorer like Russell in UP. Must always have the backpack on.

  • Ashley

    So cute, my son loves to wear a backpack too. 🙂

  • Jessica

    So cute. We had snow at my house all week so I’m jealous of the shorts and playing outside.

  • Christine

    She is just too cute and I LOVE that she is wearing her “pack-pack”, as my son calls it… empty or not!

  • Dominique @Dominique's Desk

    She looks so cute in shorts. My boy #2 loves to carry his bag out too but it isn’t empty but filled with 1-2 of his toys.

  • Create With Joy

    Waving hello as I pass thru and wishing you a happy WW!


  • Gina

    I can’t wait for shorts weather! Very cute!

  • Aleksandra

    Oh come on, book bags make for great accessories! She’s a cutie!

    • Carrie with Children

      They are totally cute accessories! 🙂 I’m just wondering why she insists on keeping it empty! lol

  • LeeAnn

    Too cute! This weather is awesome, isn’t it? I have to do some shopping for my kids…they don’t have many shorts that fit! It’s almost spring. Yay!

    Happy WW. I hope you’re having a great week!

    • Carrie with Children

      Thanks LeeAnn! I’m battling a cold/cough..but besides that, things here are great! Hope you get to do some warm weather clothes shopping clothes soon! I like shopping for my girls much better than I like shopping for myself 🙂

  • The Social Frog


  • Jessica

    So jealous!! Its only 8 degrees here 🙁

    I miss Summer so much!

    • Carrie with Children

      I think the groundhog has promised us warmer weather sooner this year! Hope it reaches you soon…because 8 degrees just isn’t fair!

  • Nichol

    Jealous!!! We are under a foot of snow from Sunday evening:( Great photo.

    • Carrie with Children

      I can’t even begin to imagine that much snow! Crazy! Hope you get out soon!

  • Carrie

    My oldest insisted on wearing a skirt outside and it was NOT warm…sunny, but not warm. Kids are weird 🙂

    • Carrie with Children

      LOL. I bet she won’t be happy when she gets home! 🙂

  • dawn

    very cute. perhaps the backpack is a security thing? like some children like to wear hats… it just helps them feel more comfortable and secure.

    i’m jealous of the short-wearing. i have to agree with carl reiner when he said, “A lot of people like snow. I find it to be an unnecessary freezing of water.”

    • Carrie with Children

      I hadn’t thought about the backpack being a security blanket kinda thing! You may be on to something 🙂

  • blueviolet @ A Nut in a Nutshell

    What a doll! You’re so lucky that you’ve been blessed with warm temps lately!

  • Kelly

    She’s adorable and ready for school, ma!

    • Carrie with Children

      That’s exactly what I think everytime I see her wearing that little book bag! School is going to be here in a few years!

  • Miranda

    Adorable {as always ;)}! I’m so jealous of the warm weather you have over there! Sent some up-north, will you :P?

    • Miranda

      *send. Sorry about the spelling.

    • Carrie with Children

      I’ll be happy to share my warm weather! Better yet…come to Florida and visit! 🙂

  • Andrea

    Isn’t it great that it’s SHORTS weather again?? Its been in the 80s every day here for a week!

  • Russ aka Grampy

    Oh how I year to go outside with just a shirt on. Even a long sleeve one. At least our snow piles are getting smaller.

    • Carrie with Children

      Boo for snow! 🙁 Hope you get to enjoy the outdoors again soon!

  • Gina Alfani

    She’s a cutie!! Spring has arrived in my part of the world . . . YAY!!!!!!

  • Diapers In The Desert

    Adorable! Accessories (empty backpacks) make an outfit. 🙂

    • Carrie with Children

      Very true! I can’t wait to see what happens when she finds out that she can actually put things in the backpack! 🙂

  • Karen Hartzell, Graco

    So cute Carrie!

    My kids have been in shorts here too on select days. However, Mommy has yet to defur her legs so she is still in pants. 🙂

    • Carrie with Children

      KP You crack me up! LOL And I totally know what you mean 🙂
