New Toys…

We decided that since we do have 3 children under the age of 3 plus a daycare, that we should probably invest a little in our outside play area. The old wooden play set we had was looking pretty sad, it is probably about as old as the house and needed to be replaced.

We have a trampoline, but last year it blew into our neighbors yard and the poles that hold the net were bent. So we replaced the trampoline net and bought a new wooden tower/swing set. And Chris spent the next week putting it together. I also thought we should get a smaller Little Tikes climber/slide for Caleb since the wooden tower is pretty big.
Apparently, the Little Tikes climber was a waste of money, I think he’s been on the Little Tikes slide twice, but he LOVES the big one! That's Caleb peeking out of the mini tower on the left.
He doesn't actually climb up these steps...yet, so far he's been using the ladder on the front. But he loves playing in that tunnel.
Right after I took this picture he plopped down on his belly and went down the slide. He was too fast for the camera, though, so I didn't get a picture of it.
Baylee also got a new toy that she really likes …
Caleb likes to play in it, too…

That is great that your yard is big enough for the climbers, swings, etc. My little one loves her saucer as well. Even though she is almost one she still spends a good amount of time in it each night. Her Poppy & Grandma bought the one that grows with baby to become a play center once she is fully walking.
