Playing Outside

Micah loves to be outside. I mean, the kid is obsessed with being outside! Sometimes when we get him up in the morning, the first thing he says is "shoes." The week that Judah was born Brad was home from work so he spent a lot of time with Micah. They had a little routine. After breakfast in the morning they had some relaxing time then they headed outside to play. Micah totally knew it was time to go outside and he would get so excited! They spent a lot of time walking around the yard going in and out of the garage pulling out all of Micah's toys, playing in Brad's car (Micah loves unlocking the door, then climbing in and playing with all of the buttons), and coloring with chalk. Brad has gotten really good at drawing the characters from Micah's favorite TV show, Yo Gabba Gabba. They often went to the park, too. Sometimes they rode the bike and other times they drove there. It made for some really good naps! :)
This past Memorial Day Weekend Brad had off all three days. We knew the weather was supposed to be warm so we had decided we were going to break out the water toys we bought. Brad was super excited. After Micah's nap he and Micah got in their swimsuits and played outside in the pool and sprinkler. Micah loved the sprinkler! He picked it up and tried shooting it all over. Brad had to show him how to run through it and he thought it was hysterical! They had so much fun playing outside together! Judah and I even ventured outside for a while, too. I can't wait for next summer when Judah can join them and play in the water.
Sunday we went to my parents' house to celebrate my dad's birthday. It was supposed to be very warm so we decided to bring this sprinkler pool that we bought at the end of summer last year. My nieces brought their swimsuits, too, and everyone had a blast playing in it! It was so fun to watch Micah playing with his cousins. And the sprinkler pool is pretty cool. We brought the pool to Brad's mom's house on Monday, too. Uncle Kevin and Aunt Mindy got a kick out of watching Micah playing in the water and trying to drink the water from the sprinklers!
On Tuesday, Micah's friend, Rosie, and her mom came over for a playdate. Since it was still warm out, we took out the pool and let them play. This was Rosie's first time in a pool! They had so much fun playing together. They loved splashing each other and just laughing. These two get along so well together. We have a playdate with Rosie typically once a week and the two just love playing together. They're like two peas in a pod. I predict many more fun water-filled playdates for these two!
