Get those kids outside!













We have had incredible weather this week. The kids have really enjoyed being outside and I have enjoyed that the kids have enjoyed being outside.
Henri is finally getting brave enough (or maybe it is coordinated enough) to play on the outdoor toys. He is so cute.













Harriett is enjoying climbing as well.













Henri trying to make a sexy pose.













Harriett decided today that she wanted to play outside in her bathing suit. Initially I resisted but then I thought I would teach her about natural consequences (freezing her butt off) so I let her. She enjoyed every minute of it and I heard no complaints about being cold. Only begging to turn the sprinklers on. I sure showed her!













Here is Harriett helping to ready our raised garden beds for planting.













Henri doing the same. They both really enjoyed watching the worms. There were many worms. I hope this means a good gardening season ahead. I plan on planting sugar snap peas, spinach, lettuce, radishes and carrots tomorrow. Yum!

Your kids are so cute. Henri sure is growing up fast. I love the warm weather also. The kids are outside and when they come in they are tired.

Leah,
Harriett is excited for you to come as well. I think she will be stuck to your side the whole time you are here:)

Noelle,
Of course should be a model. I think that all the time, but I am sure every baby's mama thinks the same thing.

Renee,
I didn't turn the sprinkler on but I did hose her down. She loved it.

I can't believe how big Henri is! Such cute kids. The garden looks great. Micah asked me today who his first friend was. I told him it was Harriett. He thought for a minute and then just smiled and said 'of course she was my first friend'.
