We finally got to go outside!! I wouldn’t say it was warm, but it was definitely not too cold for the kids and pets to enjoy a romp in the yard. It was LAST YEAR that they were outside last time, so I’d say they were due!! After dodging all the dog bombs to get to the playset in the back yard, the kids were set for about an hour or so on the swings and slide! Aubrey & Brecken were practically climbing out the windows to taste the fresh air! I barely got them dressed – they were so excited! Love that innocence in them! Crazy how much they changed since last time we played! Brecken was able to sit in Aubrey’s big girl swing all by himself, he was up the ladder in seconds but I loved that he still needed “Bop Bop” (Aubrey) to slide down with him on the slide! Aubrey learned how to pump on the swing all by herself today!! Yay, girl!!! All that coaching from last fall finally set it! She was soooooo excited that she was doing it all by herself! One of the best parts about this day was hearing the sweet laughter of our kids doing such sweet, simple things that they love! A simple push on the swing, jumping on the picnic table and zipping down the slide!! Oh, how their laughter will never grow old! I wish I could capture it in a bottle!
