Over here in these parts, spring has officially arrived. The trees are blooming & growing new leaves. The pollen is in the air giving everything a nice, yellow coating (ok, it really isn't nice). The weather is beautiful & perfect for spending time outside.
And that is exactly what we have been doing. I take the kids out once or twice a day for about 1-2 hours. We are working on our supply of outdoor toys & are looking forward to some of their b-day presents as we know they will provide hours upon hours of fun. A mommy can hope for this, right?
Grandma Donna got a really good deal on this glider at Christmas time & I think the kids will enjoy sitting in it & making tents. Great place to cool off!
And then we have the really cool picnic table by Step 2 that Abu bought for the kids. Since Gabi LOVES to color while she is outside, this is going to be the perfect addition to the backyard. I also plan on picnic lunches as well as some fun, messy crafts.
We do need some recommendations though. I would love a glider for the swing set as well as a slide for it. We have an oldy but goody. It came w/ the house & as we were struggling to get pregnant, all we dreamed about was having kids climb all over that darn thing! The problem is we don't know where to get a slide for it. Anyone out there know where to get one, reasonably priced?
We are also looking for some water toys. Not sure we want a baby pool as it has to withstand 3 toddlers. Maybe some cool sprinkler or something. Not sure yet.
Here are some of the pretty blooms on a couple of our trees in front of the house. I love being able to play w/ my camera!
And the pretty walking irises.
