I Do Believe Summer Has Arrived

At least the warmer weather has. We are beyond excited in our household. We spent today racing around through the sprinklers. Only to end it with me finally building up the energy to pull out ALL of our summer toys. This is not a simple task people. I spent well over an hour blowing things up and we have an air pump. Somehow I'd forgotten how much we had and as I pulled out each new toy I would wonder how there could possibly be more.

Here is our backyard in it's current state. I'm thinking Preston is going to have a blast tomorrow when we go out to play. Do you want to come over too? I think we might have enough room for friends.


Also lessoned learned. Last year I decided not to worry about packing up the blow up pools and outside toys when Fall hit. I thought what could possibly go wrong they're pool toys. After I spent an hour scrubbing down all the dirt and other disgusting stuff tonight, I'm thinking that this year packing up the summer toys will go a lot differently. It was bad. Really bad. And I'm not even one of those parents that freaks out about Preston playing in the dirt and getting a little dirty, but I could not let him play in these until they were scrubbed and hosed down. Preston better not ever try to say I've never done anything for him!

We can't wait to come play. I think Anthony would shoot me if I ever had that many pools for Aidan. HAHA! My excuse would be that we need more then one for playdates.
