It was a little windy on Monday, but it was beautiful out and people in central Pennsylvania took advantage and spent the day outside.

Cassandra Fleming and her family say they are tired of being cooped up inside.  They spent the day doing yard work outside their house in Shamokin Dam while their 2-year-old granddaughter Kearney played.

"Just outside riding bike, doing sidewalk chalk, putting ponds in, washing our cars and the four wheelers," Fleming explained.

Many people spent the day walking at Shikellamy State Park near Sunbury.  Martha Leitzel says when the weather is this nice, she walks there twice a day, just to spend time outdoors.

"I was forced to go to the mall, which is nice when it's ugly like it was this winter, and so I'm so glad to get outside," said Leitzel.

M.J. Fair of Shamokin Dam spent the day at Shikellamy State park with her grandchildren who are visiting from Virginia.

"This is one of their favorite places to come when they come to visit.  Zoey likes to run and Ian likes to play in the park.  It's just very quiet," Fair said.

"Swinging on the sea saw and swings and playing on the equipment," Ian said.

One of the most refreshing things about a warm spring day is a sweet treat.  There always seems to be a line at the Lewisburg Freez in Union County."

"I've been coming here since I was a kid since they have the best ice cream.  It's refreshing!" said Casey White of Milton.

Chief Meteorologist Tom Clark said this warm weather may not stick around, so we'd better enjoy it.
