Enjoying the weather

I'm still here we have been taking advantage of the nice days that we've been given and spending some time outside. Before I know it the day is over and I'm exhausted and ready for bed. I know I've been neglecting my blogging friend. But I hope you all know I still love you :) I promise I'll try to be better about checking in with you all. I do miss you.


My girls have rediscovered our little sandbox and thinks it the best thing ever. Although I'm not sure that Alyssa was quite aware of it at all last summer. They are so cute playing in it together...which I love too. Alyssa did try eating some sand but as you can see by her face she won't be doing that again.

Another of my favorite thing about it being nice out is eating outside. There's just something about it makes everything taste better. Okay, maybe it's just me but I love it.
Alyssa also has been a little more adventurous when it comes to food. She decided to try pickles again. Anyone who knows me, knows that I love pickles. I can eat a whole jar in one sitting. I very rarely buy them anymore because I literally have no self control and the salt content is no good for me.
I guess pickles are not a favorite but she didn't hate them either. I of course ate the other two that were left on her plate. See what I mean no self control!

I know what you mean about not blogging as much. This is definitely my favourite time of the year for being outside. Deaglan has been eating some sand as well. I'm hoping he'll hate it soon too:(

I just love pickles! My husband teases me that I'm going to OD on sodium!

Yummy pickles. We are huge pickle fans too. We can't get enough of them. Your girls are just so adorable. Looks like they had a great time in the sandbox. I've been a little behind in my blogging too due to the warm weather. I swear blogging is a winter activity. LOL! I get so much more done when it's cold out. Hope you are having a great weekend. Thanks for your sweet comment.

Hugs
Michelle

What is self control ... LOL

Love the sand box I was wanting to get one for the boys, but I figure the sand won't stay long in the box. Then Rick would get pissy and heck would break loose ... LOL

Hey, we have that same circus plate with the compartments. Love it! Your girls are soooo beautiful. But I'm sure you already know that. You are a blessed Mama!!! I love eating outside, too...But we don't have a backyard. Someday...Someday.
