Yard babies

If it were possible to stay outside all day long, our children would do it. They love to be outside and I love for them to be outside. Certainly makes the mess inside the house not as big. And that is the great thing about the Spring and Summer months, isn't it? The more time the chitlins stay outside, the less of an opportunity to destroy the inside which in turn means less work for me!!! Okay, less housework for me!

Please do ignore the ugly, strange looking thingymajig in the background. That would be our very old, very broken air conditioner. If you look real close you can see the shiny new one behind it. And it is shiny, looks like it should be inside and not out. But then for the price we paid for it, it better be shiny!!!


This is their new sandbox. The sandbox that we filled up with sand from the beach. Yes, it's true and if you would like to hear the details on that story be sure and ask me the next time you see me, it's quite hilarious. Redneck but hi-larious!


This is the dirt pile they loved to play on until we got their sandbox filled up with sand. Actually, they would probably still be playing on it had not the torrential downpours we've had recently washed it away.

CONGRATULATIONS on the NEW a/c unit! Hope it will last you as long as you need it to. They're a MAJOR investment. Amanda, the children KNOW how to use a wheelbarrow. Such industrious little Babes. Such focus. Determination. And, James' boots...does he sleep in 'em? Precious POST! Thank you. God bless!

I don't know mom, the dirt pile looks like it was a lot of fun! Hope they're enjoying the new sand box...

BTW, love the kiddos yard tools! Especially the wheelbarrel and shovel!!!

Joshua would live outside too (and I am not an outside person) :(

I have to say, I LOVE the boots James is sporting in one of the pictures! And I really think that you should share your redneck sand box story for those of us who don't see you on a regular basis! :p
