All that to say, what did the boys do today while we were preoccupied with this matter? They played in the dirt! Something about the simplicity of it all made me think, why even bother with the playscape hunt? Let's just give'em shovels and let'em have at it! It was a beautiful day, which they enjoyed to the fullest. And I enjoyed that they did something besides watch tv all day. It's SO nice to have a backyard...and kids that keep you grounded.
And here's Charlie afterwards, because he had dirt in every crevice of his body!
Also, here are a few more of what the boys have been up to...I'm still trying to get a photo a day of each of them:
Charlie found this strawberry and said it's like his Big Daddy...and wouldn't let anyone eat it.
A couple of evenings ago, even though it was cold outside, Chance refused to come in. I thought he looked so cute in his matching Thomas pjs.
Chance recently decided that his booster seat belongs on the ottoman. We call it his "throne."
Charlie enjoys the ottoman, too. You gotta love that "just woke up" hair.
And here is why I've given up on nesting. Every time I seek to do something, the boys want right in the middle of it. It's too cute to be irritating. The clothes in the dryer are wet, but that didn't deter Chance from enjoying it.
