Our new place has a teeny tiny backyard.. I mean teeny. I shouldn’t complain because it does allow us to do a few things and its just big enough for our dog to roam around. There is enough space for Ryley’s new sandbox, an outdoor table and a few chairs. This morning when we were playing in the sand, I went to fill Jaxon’s water dish and a little bit of water trickled out and down to her play area. Well she LOVED it and started splashing her little hands and feet in the small water puddle that formed. She kept trying to go over to the dogs dish and scoop out water too.
So I decided to get super classy and filled a huge pot with water for her to splash in. I think it made her day because she couldn’t get wet enough. I laughed the entire time and thought ‘This is really redneck, Kelley”. And thats what I called it.. our redneck beach. Its times like these that make me wonder why we buy shiny, new toys for her.
Putting our feet in the water.
Ryley would put all her sand toys in the pot, take them out and put them back in.
So refreshing, mom!
What silly things did you and your little ones do this weekend?
