It's a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood


After some super chilly weather in Dallas a couple of weeks ago, we had a beautiful weekend full of sunshine!! And what does that mean? We head outdoors to play with the twins. John's parents bought the twins this awesome sand/water activity table for Christmas and this was the perfect weather to bring it out.

John read somewhere that oatmeal was a fun thing for younger kids to play with - it has good texture, it's inexpensive and it's edible (for all of those kids that like to sample everything they play with). Good thing that it is indeed edible because that is about all our kids did with it - lots of oatmeal eating. There was a little water splashing and water play mixed in with long bouts of oatmeal eating. I don't think that they really understood to play with it like sand.

We also played on the slide that John's brother gave us last year. The twins are definitely old enough to enjoy it now. Austin can climb up on it by himself and figured out how to slide back down. Addie preferred to leap off of the slide...thank goodness Daddy was there to catch her!!

Ready or not - here I come!

Wheeee!

Love these beautiful Texas days! It's so fun now that our kids are old enough to enjoy the outdoors too!!
