all about the backyard :: part 2

our days outside can long and wandery. it's fun to shake things up a bit now and then. i've noticed that bb (now 4 going on 5) doesn't realize that he can take toys from one room and move them to another. specifically as it pertains to upstairs/downstairs or indoor/outdoor. he knows that some toys are really "outdoor toys." this includes anything that goes in the sand or dirt or something to ride on. but what he didn't seem to realize is that we can take some of our playthings outside on a beautiful sunny day. so long as we don't muddy them.

this has opened up a whole new world. . .

he caught his first toad. he's been squeamish about this in the past, but on this day, he scooped it up without me even knowing. "hey mom, look! a toad!"

she could do this all day. bubbles. cups. and ha-ho (water).

the barn gets set up.

the horses are fed their hay.

stella and bo-bo enjoy some sleep on a log after snack.

together they enjoy placing the animals, walking them, knocking them over! and of course the big-rig in the back takes them for rides or brings new hay. "it's not a big-rig, mommy, it's a hay wagon."
it is.

Looks like a terrific day! I think I need some grass in my backyard, I'd be out there a lot more, that's for sure.
