We spend a lot of time outside. In our backyard, but particularly our front yard.
The standard order is:
Morning is for jumping on the tramp, playing on the fort, swinging on the swings and playing with the dog... all this done in the backyard. Our backyard is totally visible from inside, fully fenced and safe, therefore requiring little supervision, so I get the housework done.
|Our faithful fort. Best money we ever spent. |
Cost a small fortune, but has been a huge hit for the past 7 years!
|Still a bit little for the binoculars!|
|Our faithful dog, "Bones".|
We then come in for lunch and have "quiet" time.
Little cherubs go down for their naps, and the bigger ones read books and play quietly in their rooms. This is also my break time, where I sit down with my lunch, a home made ice-coffee and watch Ellen or some trashy show Brett has downloaded for me - Jersey Shore is my current favourite!
Then, about 2pm, we head out the front.
The garage door goes up.
The "messy" table is dragged out.
The art station is raided.
Fun. By. All.
And I mean All!
The neighbour kids are usually in our driveway as well. Who could blame them? On a bad day we always have water pistols, sprinklers, the little blow up pool, bikes, scooters and ride on cars.
On a good day we also have playdoh, painting, ten-pin-bowling, kites, street hockey, sidewalk chalk and lots of arts and crafts.
This is a general weekend for us. We love where we live. We bloom where we live. We love going out on adventures, but majority of our time is spent at home.

|Have I mentioned how she melts my heart? Just sayin... again!|

Happy Sunday everyone.
Have a great week!
