Backyard Toys

I love blogging but ya know what…I’m not very good at it! My posts are either a TON of words (what can I say I enjoy writing!) and not many pictures or a TON of pictures and not many words. Sorry for that πŸ™ This is one of those TON of pictures type posts! Since we have warm weather here so much of the year I really want to make sure Kye has a LOT of toys outside. I think being outside it so healthy for him and it also helps wear him out so he’ll sleep good for us πŸ™‚  

For his birthday we bought him this water table and my dad got him this classic turtle sandbox. They both are the only “backyard” toys we have right now. I plan on getting him a pool to “swim” in at some point (I really want one of those pop-up ones to make it easy on myself and they double as a ball pit too! Here’s the one I like!) but since we’re not sure about our moving situation yet I don’t want to spend money on something like that.  I enjoy spending time in the backyard because I can be wearing whatever and not worry about any neighbors seeing me (oh the perks of a privacy fence…) and Kye likes it too because the dogs are out there with us!  

Here are pictures from Kye’s first time using both the sandbox and the water table! The sandbox was not such a big hit yet. He was kinda scared of the whole thing but I think with time it’ll get better (the age on it was 18 months and up, probably for a reason). But you can tell he LOVES the water table! Such a great purchase πŸ™‚ Enjoy a milllllion pictures:

a cup was the only sand toy I had at the time

not so tasty

concentrating on that sail boat (probably trying to break it)

discovering the cup

he was OBSESSED with drinking the water, here’s a video (as if I didn’t take enough pics)!

he ALWAYS points when he’s in deep thought, so funny

one more splashing one!

Don’t these just make you want to go outside and play??? If they don’t I don’t know what will! They also make me thirsty…
