backyard play

We moved at the beginning of August.  It wasn't far...we only moved three streets over from where we were previously.  The wonderful part about this "new" place is that there are enough bedrooms for all of us (the kids are no longer sharing a room).  It has a basement, so Dad is able to have his own space.  It is split bedroom, and overall it's about 300 square feet bigger on the main level than where we were.  There are many pluses!  The only thing I really feel like we had to give up was a super fantastic yard.  Despite that, we are really enjoying our new place!
In fact, the kids do not seem to be bothered at all by the change from fenced in grass to unfenced dirt/sand.  We were planning to get a sand box when we moved, but as you can see, that is no longer necessary. 
Every day when they go out to play, Christian asks if they have to play in the garage and driveway or if they can go in the backyard. This is apparently way more fun!


They can only play in the backyard if we have a good long while to play, and if a bath is to follow!  Any day that they can, they dig!  I'm surprised they didn't have their buckets on this particular day, as that's usually part of the deal.

I decided to take these pictures because they were playing so nicely.  I didn't notice until after the fact that he had dirt on his face and her hair was just as fuzzy as could be. :)   
 In case you didn't already know, I pretty much love being their Mama!
