As the temps hit 80 degrees this week, I finally convinced Matt to go buy Lexi some sand for her new sand box (she got it for Christmas along with a picnic table + umbrella). We set it up for her on the back patio and she LOVES it!!! It was placed close to the house, so we get the shade from morning until about noon. After noon however, you are in the sun for the rest of the day! Good thing I stocked up on sunblock. Jill also loves the sand box - I mean she likes to sleep in her carrier while Lexi plays in her sand box. It is so nice to be able to take a baby outside and not worry about her freezing or getting wind in her ears.
Big weekend coming up, so better start preparing... BIG Elton John/Billy Joel concert on Sat. night and my entire family is coming in for the whole weekend as well (partially to baby-sit while Matt and I enjoy the concert!). By the way... our development's pool is officially open as of Saturday, so bring your suits and your sunscreen if you are coming to visit!
