Hannah and I are thoroughly enjoying the courtyard and all that it offers. It's like a whole new room has been added to our home!
Last week a friend came over whom I met 4 years ago at an agency picnic when we were both waiting for our precious daughters from China. Since then Jill and her hubby were blessed with the adorable Alex! Alex and Hannah played SO well together! It was a beautiful sunny day the day of their visit so we spent the majority of it outside. We also tried out Hannah's ladybug pool for the first time.
This made me laugh and like any good mommy I quickly grabbed my camera first. Hannah's hat had gotten wet in the pool so my poor sweetie couldn't see anything. Oops! I took the pic then took it off to dry.
After our swim we enjoyed lunch on the deck.
Sorry Jill! Realized afterwards that all my pics were of the kids. Surprise, surprise!
Since our first visitors, I purchased a little patio set that will make it much easier to eat outside. It's just a nice size and we've already had company over for lunch. Wow! In the two weeks since the back yard has been transformed, we've already used it more than I did in the entire 14 years before! Thanks again Tim!!
These pictures just make me laugh. It took me about 45 mins to put the patio set together so I pulled Hannah's high chair close to the screen door and she dined while mommy did her thing. When I went in it looked like a small tornado had gone through! :o) It was time to clean the high chair and floor and then an early bath for my sticky baby girl sporting a banana rinse in her hair!
Another afternoon of pool fun
I know that we'll have many more fun times in the courtyard. Yeah!!
