Rainy day fun...

Rain, Rain, go away (but really stay because our grass needs you SO badly) come again another day (no, really, come back... we need rain!)
Since it was raining out... pretty much all day... Wyatt and I had our own fun adventures inside...
First, we found a lone "bug ball" (as Wyatt calls it) making it's way through our living room. At first Wyatt watched it crawl, but then I showed him that if you touch it, it turns into a ball. So, we spent a good 20-30 minutes playing with the "bug ball" until Wyatt dropped it and couldn't find it... mommy found it... but then I told him we had to throw the "bug ball" outside so he could go home. So, that was fun!

Then after lunch Wyatt was really bored... and maybe I was a little bored too... so we gathered up a bunch of blankets and tipped over the coffee table (which I am sure Wyatt will try to do all the time now) grabbed some chairs, and made our very first fort!! Wyatt was pretty much in awe of the fort... and I have to say... I was too! We did a really good job and it even stayed up when Colt (our dog) came charging through it!

Well, the rain has stopped, for a few minutes at least, Wyatt is all snugged up and asleep in his crib, the fort is still up in the living room (because I asked Wyatt if he wanted to show daddy and he said "yes") I am about to grab a cup of coffee, sit down, and enjoy the quietness and the sound of the rain!

Why doesn't it surprise me in the least that a "bug BALL" captured Wyatts attention!? Great to see that you are making the most of your rainy day, too!!! We have the tradition of making a fort/tent with blankets every news year Eve and bringing in the new year! Da BEST!
