Playing Outside

We've been enjoying a lot of time outside these days. The boys and I always try to do something outside during the day, but in the evenings is sometimes when we have the most fun. Every night after dinner we head outside for either a bike ride or just some fun in the backyard.

One day last week we ate outside and then went straight to the swing set to play!

Of course, the boys don't like to use the stairs to get to the top of the slide, they both insist on climbing up the slide instead. (I thought this would be an issue when other people come over to play, but Karter is a good rule follower and used the stairs when we had other kids here last weekend. Kaden on the other hand...he doesn't quite follow the rules, even though Karter tries to enforce them!)

Yes, his pants are on backwards! It is all just part of trying to teach him to be a big boy and put his pants back on after a potty break.


Kaden was happy when Karter went to play baseball with Daddy and he could have the slide to himself. When he first started doing this by himself it scared me to death to watch my baby climb up like a big boy. But now, he is really, really good at it so I don't worry so much.

He's pretty good at swinging his legs around until he finds the slide.

LOVE those chubba-wubba's!!!

Why yes, that is a trail of drool he left behind!!

One of Kristoffer's goals for the summer is to teach Karter how to swing a bat. He has the steps down, and is starting to put it all together.

Just a random shot of the babe!

I always get concerned when Kado comes at me like this, but thankfully he just had a wiffle ball this time! A few weeks ago he had a bocce ball, that was a different story...

Karter doesn't hit the ball as often as he would like, he always insists on playing "pitch" instead!

And Daddy doesn't mind showing off his skills either!!

We are loving our summer days....and nights!!

That last picture of Kaden smiling on the swing is priceless. I'm glad you're enjoying the summer!
