Last week, we took her to a sprayground. They have these all over Louisville for free, but there are only a couple of them here, and you have to pay to get in, but we wanted to check it out. She had a ball, of course, because she's a water bug!
We've also been to the Zoo about....four hundred times. Sylvain's been taking her at least twice a week. They go early in the morning and only stay for a couple of hours, which is so nice because she's not exhausted, they get to eat lunch and nap at home, and every time they go they get to see something "new" to her. I went along last week and we're going again tomorrow, but I have a feeling this will be a Daddy-Sylvia "get out of the house" activity all summer. They both love it!

Earlier last week, she was begging to go swimming, but it was way too cold to put on a bathing suit and I was worn out by 9 am anyway. So, I remembered this idea I found online (thanks, Pinterest!) and I made her a fancy shmancy "waterbox!" It's just a box of water. And I didn't go hunting for any special toys that would help her develop all kinds of particular skills in some area or another. I just dumped a few things from our junk drawer into the water and let her go to town! It was a hit, and once again, all I had to do was sit in the shade and watch. Best. Activity. Ever.
Sylvain has been VERY busy in the backyard, and here's one of his day projects from last week - our vegetable garden! Sylvia insisted on helping.
