Yesterday, I did have chores to do around the house, but then I looked down at Ethan's sweet little face and said, "Do you want to play outside?" To which he responded with an eager head nod, a "Da!" while running over to get his big blue truck to take with him. We had a fun time on the slide while I trimmed the mulberry bush and pulled up some massive overgrown lavender plants.
And then we broke out the pool for the first time. The best part was getting ready - putting sunscreen on, getting dressed in swim diaper and bathing suit, blowing up the pool, finding toys - because he just ran all over the basement yelling in excitement. The pool was a huge hit, especially the splashing.
