A Shout Out to the Arkansas Kin

My sister's family got Layla and Jenna some really fun outdoors toys for their birthday back in March.  Now that the weather is nice and toasty, the girls are absolutely loving them!  Last weekend, they had their first experience with the water table actually filled with water...they had been playing with it completely dry, which they thought was pretty entertaining too!

"Whoa!  This thing just got 10 times cooler!  Whoever thought of adding water is a genius!"  

Again, another conversation I would love to comprehend.  

Jenna: "Let's see if I can figure out how this thing works."

I didn't think it was possible for someone to be just as cute from the back as they are from the front, but Layla has proven me wrong!

 Jenna: "This thing is awesome!!!"

Layla sure knows how to concentrate when it comes to toys...she could play for hours!

Jenna: "Dad, this is the best day ever!"

Layla: "Aw, Daddy!  You got me!"

Jenna is so proud toting around that bottle of bubbles.

Oh no, Jenna, what's wrong???

Oh, I see.  Layla swiped your bubbles. 

Looks like you found something else to satisfy you for the moment.  

Big Brother Toby approves of his new water bowl.

After all that playing out in the sun, Layla is stressing the importance of staying hydrated (with great posture, I might add).

Of course, we can't play out back without taking a little swing.  These were also a birthday gift from my sister's family, and boy, are they a hit!

Layla: "Hey sis,  isn't this the life?"

Jenna: "Yeah, I can't complain."  
(The bubble blower Jenna is holding came in the Easter basket my sister's family sent...are you sensing a theme here?)

I mean, really, does it get any better than this???

Layla and Jenna had a great day playing outside and loved ALL their toys from their Arkansas kin.  Thank you so much to Aunt Vanna, Uncle Ushey, and cousins Alisa, Kieran, Aydin, and Asher.  Now, can you just do just one tiny thing more for us?  Can you move a little closer???
