In an effort to keep the girls entertained outside, we purchased some "big girl toys" to be used in the front driveway. Away from the mosquitoes. We've had some cooler weather up here these past few days (although it is pouring rain today) and I'm waiting for all those little buggers to die off. It was actually 56 degrees (F) the other morning.
Here we have Anna with the Crazy Coupe, Allie with the Princess Big Wheel and Em with Pinkee. And yes, some of those names were created by us.
The girls LOVE playing in the driveway. This is a bit of a new adventure for them. It was slightly impossible for us to do this last year as they were constantly running off in three different directions. We still need to remind them to WALK in the driveway. Allie fell the other night and had a scrap mark on her forehead and they have all had some skinned knees.
Every night when Rich and I arrive home, Allie states, "I want to play outside in the driveway." That's an eight word sentence! And I'm going to veer off on a tangent here but the girls' memory amazes me. Just today, we received in the mail a picture of the girls' cousin Jen and her boyfriend, Matt. I told the girls that the picture was from the Falmouth Road Race that Daddy ran. I asked them if they remembered seeing Jen and Matt after the race. I didn't say anything about us having lunch with them. Anna replied, "Anna ate some dippy." No only did she remembered us all eating lunch together but she remembered all the dippy she ate.
So here are some pictures of playing in the driveway from a few nights last week.
