During the spring and summer, we always spend a LOT of time hanging out in our front yard. We have a long driveway for the kids to ride bikes, trikes, and scooters on, draw with chalk, etc., and a nice big, flat front yard for playing ball, Frisbee, etc. The kids play, Corey and I sit out and visit...with each other, and with neighbors. We are sooo happy that we are back into that time of the year again! Love it!
Today, Christian headed straight out to ride his bike, and play with his friends, etc...which is what he usually does, regardless of the weather! :)
Caylie is very much a warm weather girl, and so today, she couldn't wait to get outside. She ran upstairs and changed into a tank top and shorts so that she could soak up the sun!
I put Carson's shoes on him, and we all headed out. I rarely, if ever, put shoes on him unless we are leaving the house, because it is never more than a couple of minutes until this is happening...
Yep...off go the shoes! But in no time, he stepped on something that hurt, and realized that maybe he needed them on after all. He actually brought them over to me to have me put them back on!
After piddling around in the garage for a few minutes, he pulled out a strange assortment of "toys" to entertain himself with. Daddy's golf club (I know that Corey loves it when Carson romps around with his clubs!), some dice, and a Frisbee.
(By the way, Corey does allow Carson to play with this club!)
She and Christian are both sooo good about playing with and entertaining Carson!
Caylie is a "master chalker"...nobody can create chalk doodles like Caylie can!
Christian graciously decided to pacify me, and allow me to take this picture of him before he headed out to ride around the circle again.
And just for the record...he is the most difficult child ever about posing for pictures! You would think that I was asking him to stick his feet in hot coals! I am thankful for every picture I get of this guy! :)
Hopefully that will change when he turns 12...in about 2 weeks! :)
I want more pics of my big guy!
Are you listening Christian??? :)
Carson saw a fuzzy caterpillar on the driveway, and enjoyed "petting" it. I'm thinking that this one needs to go in a frame. I'm really bad about getting around to that kind of thing, but I'm at least stating my intention! Maybe that will help me to actually get it done...
Carson got the grass mowed with his bubble blowing lawn mower...yes, that is chalk all over his bottom!
Caylie traced Carson's body, which he complained about, and then, when he saw it, and realized that it was pretty cool, he said, "Do again!"
That is one of his little quotes right now. Cute.
Caylie is really good at playing around with photo editing software. She took this picture of herself in the lawn chair yesterday, and then played around with it.
I think it is pretty cool!
