Fun in the Sun
What's that in the sky? It's actually the sun!
This afternoon turned out to be a pretty one, so instead of naps, we opted to play outside.
We live on a dead end circle at the top of a hill, so it's great for letting the kids ride around on the paved cul-de-sac. When we first went out.. instead of waiting for me to get the tricycle down to the road, Natalie decided to barrel down the driveway. She wiped out pretty much immediately and skinned up her face.
She was more worried about her hand. I was more worried about her forehead. But she recovered quickly and they had a blast.
I had this brilliant idea that I would put together the slide that she got for her birthday (yes, last Oct, and it is still in the box in the garage). I figured how hard could it be? Well for this 14 week preggo, getting over a chest cold woman, it was too much. Daddy will have to help us with that this weekend.
After playing with sticks, leaves, rocks and various other things found in the yard...
we decided to come in. (notice how she has her injured hand cradled against her.. there wasn't even anything wrong with it, but one little small piece of scraped skin) Oh.. I did a load of the girls laundry after we got in and got cleaned up. I have a nice pile of squeaky clean rocks if anybody needs them.
Wonder where those came from...
