Kid stuff...

This was built in the backyard by the little ones and their neighborhood friends. They spent all afternoon setting it up, getting snacks, and giggling. (The orange shorts and shirt were purchased today off the Gap clearance rack - Tag had to have both. But the deal was he wouldn't wear them together, a little too much orange, as the girl at the Gap said "you don't want to look like a pylon". But as you can see, my deal went out the window as soon as we got home and he proceeded to shed his other clothes and put on the pylon outfit.) Yes, Tag does spend most of his days playing with girls, it's just the dynamics of the neighborhood, but he doesn't seem to mind.The building in the front yard by Cooper and his friend Daniel soon caught their attention and they left their little fort to check it out.Tag standing there with his hands on his hips like he is supervising their work kind of cracks me up.
Cooper's happy dance after the ramp is successful.This also took most of the afternoon and kept my sweet eleven-year-old off the video games. This kind of play from my kids just really makes me so happy. Just good old-fashioned fun.

I LOVE the pylon outfit!! He could fit right into a construction site without wearing the vest and you know what my favourite colour is. Love, Leni

Looks like your kids are having lots of fun with their imaginations.
