I think you know by now that we rarely leave the house... I mean, I suppose we go outside, but we don't go all the places that most people seem to hit up during the summer. It's a LOT of work to time naps just right so that we can get out of the house together - we're pretty much limited to the 10-12 time slot (IF the babies have taken morning naps at a normal time) or maybe 3-5, but that's only if I don't really need to make much for dinner.
And since we're still transitioning the babies from 3 naps/day to 2, half the time one of them (usually Elizabeth) desperately needs a late afternoon nap, or just wakes up ridiculously early and has to nap early, so our entire day is spent waiting for a baby to wake up and we can't leave.
So we've taken to creating our own fun in the yard!
|A sprinkler inside a wading pool|
|Total control of the water!|
|The occasional sibling conversation|
|Hanging out with Aunt Sister!|
|And of course, attempting to consume fists full of grass (Elizabeth was napping, or she would have joined in)!|
|Discovering what the rainwater has done to the sand...|
|And "painting" her swimsuit with it.|
|Of course, the tummy needed a little love, too!|
|"You mean I wasn't supposed to do that?"|
