Even though the weather right now is kind of garbage, we did have a few nice days in the last week or so (and are supposed to be getting more soon!). Vivian is loving being outside - at daycare she wants to be outside all day - usually eating sand in the sandbox. She wants to go straight to the backyard as soon as we get home, and usually wants to go out for a ride on her tricycle too.
I have to admit - it is so nice to be able to just throw her out in the backyard for a bit. Fences are the best.
Maybe next summer she'll be able to have a nice swingset back there - have you seen the price of swingsets?! In a perfect world where I win the lottery I would get her this but I don't think that will be in the cards. Maybe just a nice little sandbox? I hear that you can get little devices to keep the cats out of them now, so the thing doesn't just turn into a giant outdoor litter box.
