And then the floods came:
|The top is Katrina. The bottom is Sandy!!!|
So, while all the East Coasters were buttoning up for the storm:
Jason was outside in the sun working with this all day!!
He built the kids their very own park in our backyard. Leo is so excited that he promised he would play with it every single day.
Roman is just excited to be outside. Watching squirrels.
Leo only came in once to eat. He never left Jasons side!!
and Jason looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was dry.
Okay okay - so I'm being a little insensitive. No more jokes about Sandy...
After I plucked dry leaf #582 from Roman's death grip, I decided it was time to bring him in.
Between work, Halloween, visits to Granny & Papa's, etc., he didn't get a chance to finish the fort right away. But he worked late into the evening whenever he had a chance to get it finished!
And even though the plans called for a fort about 4 x 6, Jason doubled it! How would we going to fit all our kids up there with such little space?????
Leo even got to try out his new shoes. When his other shoes got wet. Because he never left Dad's side.
Not even when he had to pee...
Are we having fun yet?????
One of us sure is!!!
Our biggest issue is that none of the kids know how to pump the swings. Elena figured a way around it:
And the ever gallant and gentlemanly Leo did as well!
(That's Maggie Doodle)
When it comes down to the choice between catching falling leaves...
It's a no-brainer!
Now we need to figure out a better way of getting all three swings going non-stop...
