One of the reasons we bought this house was because of the big, fenced-in back yard. It is so much fun to come outside and play with the kids on the swings and have pic-nics in the grass, and do all of the fun summer-time stuff I did as a kid. First thing in the morning Alli always asks to go outside to the playground. If I would let her, she would be out there ALL day, literally!
Josh built Alli and Blake a big playground set with a "rock-climbing" wall, a large deck, swings and a slide. It is AWESOME! Even I can sit on the swings and go down the slide! I just bought Alli and Blake a pop-out pool, that they LOVE. Also, Auntie Neener bought Alli a Slip-and-Slide for her upcoming birthday. It's been fun trying to teach Alli how it works! I guess you could say that our backyard is "tricked out"!!! I'm lovin' all of the outside time, and so are the kids! Can you say TAN anyone!?
