Ava LOVES to be outside. Mostly she just likes to run, but back in Michigan we found some other activities that Ava could not wait for each day. My parents neighbors have a 4 and 8 year old, a bit to old for play dates. They were however so sweet and thoughtful; they have a large swing set complete with slide and sandbox. They even hung their old toddler swing back up for Ava’s stay! Ava could not get enough! She would stand at Grandpa and Grammy’s back door pointing and shouting for play time. And if it was not play time, there were often some tears involved! My mom even joked about throwing a sheet over the swing so she would not get upset…what a pill Ava can be!
We actually received the Little Tikes 2-1 secure swing for Ava’s first birthday from her Aunties and Uncles. I am thinking we need to get that up ASAP one more activity during the day is always a good thing. Living on a hill sadly we do not have an appropriate yard for a swing set I am hoping to eventually find a place for a sandbox and a kiddie pool this summer.
Having a baby changes everything…I never thought a yard would be so important!
