Spring has sprung! It went from being 30-40 degrees every day to 70-80 degrees… gosh that was a shock to the system, but I LOVE it. Baby G loves to be outside and so do I. I love the SMELL to spring… it smells like vacation to me. This may be because I grew up in New Hampshire so most of the time it was never warm enough to get that smell, haha. When I lived in Texas it was like vacation ALL the time.
We pulled out a bunch of his toys that are outdoors-appropriate to make the outside even more fun. We’ve got a water table (Costco), wheelbarrow and garden tools (Costco), a baby pool, a Fisher-Price Bubble Mower
, a Little Tikes EasyScore Basketball Set, some ride on toys, his Little Tikes Cozy Truck, and his Little Tikes Deluxe Ride and Relax Wagon with Umbrella. I had a big play date on Monday and then Tuesday one of my friends came over for a little bit in the morning. It’s nice to just chill outdoors with the kiddos. I got a chance to water my vegetable gardens and the two lavender plants that I put in, Daddy B built a fence around my veggie garden (blog post soon to come!), and soon we’ll be putting up Baby G’s new swing set. Costco had the one we wanted marked down $200 until April 14th, I believe, and it’s really cool. We rented a truck from Lowes (picking up a bunch of soil for the garden at the same time), then loaded up our swing set boxes at Costco; the guys there were great helping us out. Our roommate, Dan, helped Daddy B unload the boxes when we got home. Our in-laws are coming this weekend to help put it together and to visit Baby G (mostly to visit him because he’s the super star, of course).
