Ashton loves playing outside and often throws tantrums when we don’t let him go out. One of the reasons I didn’t let him out as much before was that our yard has a lot of rough terrain, and our little guy hates wearing shoes. But now he knows that when the shoes go on, he gets to go outside.
Daddy built him a sandbox in one corner of the bocce ball court. We’ve still got to get more sand and build a cover to keep the cats out. I bought him a little picnic table so that he can have snacks and activities outside. And we’re in the process of hunting down a landscaper who can put grass in the remaining part of the bocce ball court. We’ ve also got some stone pavers on order for laying a small patio near the garage end. Soon we will have a yard that is a little more kid friendly.
