New Kitchen and Yard Work

We've been looking for some bigger toys for Izabel to play with and for her to have outside. One of the things we wanted for her was a play kitchen to put in our kitchen. Yesterday we found one on the side of the road and it is practically brand new! Since we can't afford a new one right now we brought it home to give it a closer inspection and it really is nice. Noah took it all apart and cleaned it with bleach so I felt better about bringing it into the house. We put it in the kitchen and Izabel had the biggest smile on her face when she saw it. She played with it for quite a while and I am so happy we were able to get it for her. Now I just have to go to Toys R Us and get her some play food and accessories for it! Yay for our neighbors!!!

Today Noah, Theresa, Ann and Joan planned to work on our backyard. They got started fairly early and they were digging up flower beds and moving plants around. The backyard was just way to overgrown and overdone so we wanted to pull up some things have room for more grass. It's not done but they made quite a bit of progress. Izabel spent almost the whole day outside and she loved it. She loves being outside so much but right now we don't have much for her to do out there. That's why we've been looking for the big toys like a slide and picnic table or play house. Today she was a big helper and really enjoyed gardening! Maybe she'll enjoy it when she's older too!!!
