Summer Days...

It's a gorgeous 30 degree day out there today, and just like yesterday, the boys have been outside all day long. Our front and back yards are not seperated and we have a huge high fence and since Christmas Eve a sturdy lockable from gate, so it's safe for Bryn to just be out there running amok with them. As well as this, both the front and back yards have fantastic shade trees, so it's not too hot even on a 30 degree day.



I feel like this is the first summer since we moved here that the boys can really use the yard properly, in previous years I couldn't trust the old gate not to just blow open, or come open under a little boyish pressure...



Bryn is totally adoring the big days playing with his brothers in the yard. Last night he went to bed at 7pm, woke briefly for a drink of water at 10.30pm, and then finally came into bed with us at 6.40am this morning, that's the longest he's slept in forever I think, and all of it in his own bed. LOL, so we've found out just how much energy Bryn has, rofl. He seriously needs to run around for 8 hours straight each day, roflmao!



Erik and Luey have loved having him play with them too, and they've shown an ability to watch out for him and meet his needs. Erik is kind of bossy, might go with the triple territory of being the eldest, being my son, and being Dave's son... But Luey and Bryn seem aware of just how to ignore him when they want to, rofl.



The boys have built a cubby out of a climbing frame Erik got for his second birthday, the toddler gates Kate Y sold me the year before last, their portable basket ball hoop, and various falled branches from the trees in the garden. They've riding a variety of bike, trikes, ride on, rollerblades and skateboards as well... Erik is main ring leader, and Luey and Bryn are his mostly willing minions...



It's times like this when I think another boy would be fine, LOL (totally forgetting my own need for someone a little more like me in the house, rofl)
