Happy 4th of July! IT'S PLAYTIME!!

I'll post our 4th of July festivities on my next blog. Herein lies the reason my blog is pretty dead: It's SUMMERTIME PLAY, baby!

Allowing the children to run to the playground seemed like a good idea - until I saw everyone ditch MamaDB's Charlie Brown. He didn't seem to notice, though.

Pretty cool teeter-totter. LittleMan "assisting" Lucy and Charlie Brown in getting the structure to rock. Charlie planted himself at this location for quite a while after the other two left.

BoopaLoop wanted to help push too. Not surprisingly, this desire quickly faded to be replaced by "I want to swing too".

Thanks to MamaDB's family, we deemed gorgeous weather and beautiful company a grand reason to break out the water slide again. The following day we came up with another excuse to break it out again.

BoopaLoop is getting more and more confident in the water as she gets older and begins to trust her swim instructors.

Nothing like playing with your friends in a water slide during the summer.

My Mukor playing "monster" with the kids before we had dinner celebrating LittleMan's birthday.

For AllThingsBD's consideration for Fashion Tuesday
BoopaLoop getting appropriately attired (thanks to Lucy) for summertime play in the backyard. Notice the criss-cross velcro straps on her shoes? She does this every time she puts these shoes on, and I don't know where she got this idea.

Have a wonderful Independence Day! Be safe.

I want that water slide...Too bad the kids in my family would destroy it within half an hour.

Lorraine said...

My kids would get on a plane just for that waterslide. In fact, so would I!

Happy 4th of July! Glad you are spending some fun times with the kids. Also, can I please come over and play on your waterslide? Is there a weight requirement for that thing? 'Cause I'm asking for one for my birthday!

Ah yes summer playtime. I feel we're all observing summer hours lately. It's 9:23 and my son is still up watching a baseball game. Hmmm.

I promise to be patient. Just want you to know that you'll have a reader standing by when you are ready to post your next post. It was good to see you 'online', catching up on some reading. Motivated me to do the same.
