Fun In The Sun

It's Outdoor Wednesday over at This is a great blog so please hop on over and participate if you can or just visit all the lovely ladies over there today.

We have been doing a lot of this lately now that it is nice and sunny again here in North Ga.

Jumping on the trampoline!! Or as Braxton calls it the "ampoline". This is my daughter Lexi and my son Braxton. 2 of the 4. We have been hanging out on this crazy thing 3 or 4 times a day as it is Braxton's favorite new discovery. We will lay on our backs and watch the clouds and since our backyard is heavily wooded we watch the birds flutter around the trees overhead. It is a delight to watch Braxton discover new creatures. Yesterday we saw the longest earth worm I have ever seen. It was doing such crazy things and we watched him for about 30 minutes. That crazy worm crawled up on a swing that was laying on the ground getting some repairs and when it touched the hot metal chain the worm started jumping way up in the air and flailing about wildly. I though Braxton jumped a mile and right into my arms that worm scared him so bad. I think he may have scorched himself on the metal. But I love laying outside with Braxton and watching all the animals together. We have geese in the lake behind our house and sometimes we watch the fish jump out of the water. That is a lot of fun.

Here is my little monkey at the park. He loves the park. "I want to play park" is part of his daily vocabulary. He likes to watch the ducks at the duck pond at our park. If I am not looking closely he tries to get in with them. Stinker.

The next couple of weeks I am going to try to do something with our boring back deck. Not too pretty, it's just boring wood. But it has to all be free so that should be fun to see what I can do!!

Have a great day,

That sounds like so much fun, hanging out with your kids like that. We have been trying to get outside, but it seems to be raining a lot around here. We are in North Georgia also about 20 minutes from Chattanooga.

We LOVE the outdoors. I think my littlest one would live in the sandbox if I let him! Enjoy the weather before it gets too hot!!

Braxton is a cutie and so is Lexi! It sounds like you have just the most fun with them. I am so glad the weather is getting nicer so we can get outdoors more. Kids love it and it sure wears them out, doesn't it?

Have a wonderful week Jenn! :-D
