I kicked Shaun out out of bed bright and early and made him drive across town to buy a bike trailer at a yard sale. It was only $10! I didn’t want someone else to get it first! We took our first family bike trip later that afternoon and both kids had a blast. We’re planning on doing this every Saturday.
We are big fans of bubbles around here. I took the kids out on the deck tonight while Dad made dinner and we had a bubble dance party.
After work today I grabbed the kids and went to the park so Dad could have a break. Both kids conquered the gigantic slide, and I gave it a go as well. Neither of them wanted to go home.
We had dinner out today to celebrate Daddy’s birthday, and afterwards we hit up the park again. Juniper wanted to show Daddy all of the slides (Seriously, there are like 30 slides there.) and I brought our new beach toys for Flynn to play with in the sand.
I am convinced that the best way to entertain two small kids is with a couple of buckets of water. The kids had fun splashing around on the deck, and it entertained them each for a good 20 minutes.
Before we went to the store, we let Flynn run around in the front yard for a while. I’m sad that everything in our yard is dead. (Except for the weeds of course…) It looks like it’s late October, except that it’s 108° outside… The forecast says it’s finally supposed to rain next week, but I’ll believe it when I’m soaked to the bones from jumping in puddles.
