Day 178 - Good ol' fashion fun!

(Sorry for the late post, blogger was down last night and it wouldn't let me post.)

This morning after picking up the house we headed to the park.  It has been a long time since we have been to the park, it has been 100 degrees everyday so usually our only destination is the pool.  But we felt like being crazy today and  changing things up.  The kids spent more time exploring the park grounds than actually playing on the playground.  It was fun to see them just enjoying nature.  Jai definitely enjoys water and dirt over any toy from the store!


I think they were watching some birds.


Always looking for an adventure...
and dirt! 
Ahh yes, here it is!

After the park we had some lunch and then went down for naps....which nobody felt like taking especially Missy Mae.  Funny how when I actually have something planned to do during nap time they choose not to nap.  Despite skipping a nap Laila was in a great mood and we broke out the kiddy pool in the backyard and cooled off.  That girl loves being naked! 
Laila is styling Jai's hair with dirty water from the dog bowl.  Jai wouldn't have it any other way!  I'm telling you dog food is this kids favorite snack!  He comes running to the kitchen when I am filling the dog bowls with food.  You'd think he was starving or something!
Oh hello :)

Lastly, our handyman brought us some corn, and acorn squash from his garden this morning.  We had it for dinner and it was amazing!!  I tell you there is nothing like homegrown veggies.  I had never had acorn squash before, I just sliced it in half, deseeded it, and put a slice of butter and spoonful of brown sugar in the cavity.  Slipped it in the microwave for 10 minutes and it was heaven!!  I will be having that again soon!


XOXO
