Working backwards ...

So yesterday we went to a friend's house for a playdate. We walked over (outside time!) because they live down the street from us. The girls played bubbles a bit and then we made our way into the backyard where they spent some time playing tag, digging around the fairyland sandbox created by mom (it's adorable!) and did some running, jumping, sliding and refreshing with water after.

Then last night when my husband got home we took a nice stroll, and even took Dexter with us. Fortunately it was cool enough outside. Here's hoping the nights - and even the days - stay that way!

Wednesday was a pretty mellow indoors kind of day, but we more than made up for that yesterday, and the day before. And the day before that, too. She did get outside a bit by herself, which is also fine by me. She didn't do too much out there, but probably had just about fifteen minutes before she came back inside.

Tuesday we took a nighttime stroll, which was nice. It's the perfect time of night to get out, after seven, as it's cool enough and nobody is really around. Except for our neighbors. Which is fine, as our daughter loves their little boy. And he really is too cute.

Monday was our first day back in NC after a long drive home the day before, so we were out and about in the Jeep quite a bit. And she had some water table/hose time outside, which was (and usually is) great fun for her. It cools her down and it's a lot of fun splashing around like that. Even if it is [supposed to be] from the waist up! We also hit the bookstore and walked around the shopping center there while hubby caught a movie. Kiddo and I walked for ice cream, and then did a little bit of shopping, and more walking - but not too much. It did get warm out there.

I still need to load the NY pictures, but we definitely had lots of outdoors time captured on film. Between my mom and I, we're bound to have some fun shots to share. Looking forward to seeing them again myself, and on an object larger than a camera screen.

Find yourself that fifteen minutes and get out that door! :)

As for me, for today, we'll stay in for a bit and head out later when it cools down some.
