Outdoor Fun!

This was the first weekend in a long time that we haven't had a full schedule.... We were able to spend lots of time together as a family- and most of it outside!! The weather was absolutely gorgeous... We wanted to take advantage of it while we could... We took several trips to the park, several walks, and spent time raking leaves in the yard... Saturday night we also had a bonfire at Drew's parent's house and Evan got to try his first (of many I'm sure) peanut butter milkshake. Grandpa Brad is famous for these- and Evan loved it!! Unfortunately I didn't have my camera at their house so I didn't get any pictures of the bonfire or milkshake :( But here are the pictures we did take....
Going down the slide....
More slides...
Riding the duck- he's so proud that he can get up on him all by himself!
Family picture in the backyard :)
Evan standing by his tree.... He has officially outgrown it!
Helping rake... Evan thought he was helping, but I'm not so sure....
Jumping in the big pile!
More raking.... This guy sure made us laugh this weekend!

In other news, the "binkie fairy" also came to our house this weekend... He took all of Evan's binkies and left a new Lightning McQueen and Tow Mater pillow and a new tractor book... We were bracing ourself for the worst and hoping to get at least a little sleep... But he has done surprisingly well... It still takes him a little longer to fall asleep (he only had it during naps and nighttime), but none of us have lost too much sleep :)
