Fun New Toys

Peyton's 1st birthday party is in just under a month (yikes!).  We sent out a birthday list to the Grandparents with things Edwin and I Peyton may want or need, and pretty much the entire list is stuff for outdoors.  Peyton LOVES being outside, and now that the weather is warming up we spend a lot of time there.  The issue has been that she's so incredibly active, and there's just not a lot for her to do unless we go to the park.  She's not walking yet and doesn't want to be held when she's outside, so that leaves crawling all over the place...and for some reason she loves crawling on the concrete, it makes my knees hurt just thinking about it. 

Edwin and I bought Peyton a cool slide as one of her birthday gifts and decided we would just go ahead and give it to her now.  We're picking it up today and I can't wait to get it out in the yard.  She's become quite the climber lately, and I'm sure she'll be all over this thing!  Here's a pic of the one we got. 
My parents decided to get her a cool sandbox.  This is the gift I was most excited about because Peyton loves some sand.  She could spend hours just playing in the sand at the park (just another reason I can't wait for the beach this summer).  With the recent rash of beautiful weather, we just couldn't wait to give it to her!  So my parents went ahead and picked it up and let us put it in the yard this week.  They got a really awesome sandbox that has an attached table and umbrella.  We bought the sand for it last night and ended up playing in it until almost 8pm...I totally forgot about bedtime!  Here's the sandbox we got...

and here's my Princess in it.  I think she likes it!!!


  1. That sandbox is so neat! This time of year, you can't have enough outside toys :)

  2. How could you take that cute little smile inside and not stay out late? Too precious!!
