Play dough

This is the first time I have allowed the babies to play with play dough. Why? Because its three times the pain of cleaning it up. Because I know that they will all try to eat it. Because I know that the youngest monkey will through a fit if he can't hoard it all.
And what happened? John tried eating it the most. Matthew was interested in stacking the containers. Brooke and John liked making shapes with the cutters, kind of, and a lot of it got dropped on the floor. And look at the picture. Where is all the play dough? In front of John.
But I will do this experiment again. There wasn't so much crying during this time.

After the babies naps we went outside. They played in the sandbox, ran around the yard looking for weaknesses in the fence to escape and then when that became boring they decided to swing. We could swing all day.

I love to swing too. It was one of my favorite things to do as a child. That and play tether ball.

This is one of my favorite pictures of Jacob. He was helping dad all day take out the old landscaping. We'll (Scott and Jacob) busy planning landscaping stuff for the next couple of weeks.
