Sand & Water Table
For Christmas, the kids got a really cool sand & water table. It is the coolest thing I've ever seen & I believe we will have loads of fun w/ it as the weather gets warmer. I have to say, the cold didn't stop the kids from having fun. We have to get play sand to put in but used potting soil just to throw a little something in there.
I've been trying really hard to get the kids out in the backyard at least once a day for a good hour. Unfortunately, when it rains, our backyard becomes a pool & w/ the weather being so cold, the water sits for a good day before completely draining so our ventures outside have been spotty at best. Lets not even mention the freezing temps around these parts as another deterrent. At least I can still go jogging, all bundled up, of course.
PS ~ Just did a personal best of 5 miles in 50 minutes! How's about them apples?
