3200sf and where do they play?!

They have 3200sf to play in on three floors so where do they both play while Tom is fixing the freezer and pieces are laying all around the kitchen?

  

What I came downstairs to this morning.

She wasn’t thrilled but she wasn’t complaining too loudly.  

 

Weeknight baseball!

 

She finally went across after two months!

We have been trying to coach her over the top for two months now… She will get to the top and just stay there, then claim she’s too scared. Today she finally did it!! And then did it again and again like it was nothing!

This is what she does on the swings now. 

  

Katie on Mario at Target

  

She loves messing with her daddy. 

  

Katie and her Snorlax

Her stuffed animals often get to wear sunglasses!

   

Surprise playground and dirty knees!

When there’s a playground around the corner from a Facebook yard sale pickup that you didn’t know about, you have to stop.

Of course, Katie is dressed in brand new light-colored clothes for school later. It took under two minutes for her to fall and get both knees dirty (like seriously 30 seconds after this photo).

   

What Katie won’t and will do. 

She won’t go over the top of this: 

 

But she’ll do this:

Baseball morning

This is how Katie keeps busy during baseball games.

I hit the Nerf motherlode at a thrift store yesterday. 

All three for $13. No bullets but they don’t really care. 

  

I think she’d stay all day if I let her. 

As it was, she was in for about an hour today. 

  

Mama, look who I have?!

Charlie only lasted about two minutes being pulled around, but that was longer than I predicted!

   

He’s getting more adventurous. 

He’s been climbing higher on the playset recently and today he climbed up here. It may not seem like a big deal but for a kid who isn’t a climber and who doesn’t do things like this…it is a big deal. I’m proud of him. 

   
 

Bubbles with Liam

It was a gorgeous day so we spent some time outside with our friends at their house.

 

Katie, get in the cat bed. 

    

Three of Katie

Cuddling at her request.

Heading back from the playground.

Trying to trace Maggie’s feet. She got one circle done before Maggie took off.

 

Of course, he gets them all riled up right before bedtime. 

    

After this we shall need wine.

My friend Caitlin convinced me to go outside my box and travel 30 minutes to take the kids to an indoor play area. The kids had fun; I got to catch up on my reading. :)
