With the changing weather, comes more time outside. When I ask BJ what he wants to do he says, "Get mucky & have a picnic!" But let it be said, you can't have lunch outside if he isn't mucky yet! Nope, not going to happen apparently. He has definite ideas on how things should be done. He obviously had a great time another day playing at getting mucky & then ending with a picnic. So that is the ritual that he loves & wants to replicate each time. I guess it is things like this that he will remember for fun times at home when he is grown up! I hope so!
We spent much of the time running around the yard being fire-people. I was "fire-lady" for most of the afternoon, & having to follow behind in the firetruck. Fortunately I didn't have to climb the apple tree to help put the fires out.
DJ spent the time crawling about in his pajamas. Yes, his pajamas. I figured they were dirty anyway, it was going to be just the same to soak & wash them as a clean set of clothes! He had a great time exploring, discovering new things like snapping sticks!
The picnic consists of simple things usually like an apple in pieces with a treat to follow like BJ's favourite thing, Turkish Delight & a milkshake. He really is one for following routine as he told me he had to have apple & "those chocolate things", though for the life of me I can't remember which chocolate things he was referring too!
DJ had a great time playing in some mud & getting mucky! He was more mucky than the big boy! I think that is going to become pretty normal around here. The wee one is Trouble! Yep, big trouble. He is also going to have his haircut shortly so he won't look quite so shaggy as this next time! lol
