Freedom!!!


We finally got our fence up. It is beautiful. Thanks to Aunt Mel and Uncle Shawn for giving us the fence. We played in it for the first time today. Unfortunately, the freedom wasn't as great as I was expecting it to be. I have built this moment up in my mind for so long that it was a let down.

We went from chasing them all over the place outside, to chasing them all over the yard trying to keep dirt clods out of their mouths. We weren't very successful. The boys liked the dirt. They would have eaten handfuls if we would have let them. Syd tried it once and decided she didn't like it.

Jenna ate some grass, but never tried the dirt. I hadn't thought about the kids trying to eat everything in sight. Before we had the fence they were distracted by the new surroundings.

In the fence they can't explore like they were before so they are trying to occupy their time by eating anything they can. Peyton was so proud of himself. He loves the camera. Landon wasn't as happy with the dirt as Ethan, but that didn't keep him from trying it countless times.

How funny, I can't wait to see them try climbing over or crawling under when a toy goes sailing to the otherside. :)

Oh they are so cute! I wish we could go outside. The kids just scream when they touch the grass. We do take walks just about daily and they love that! Enjoy the fence.

I never understood why Crystal wanted to eat dirt, grass, & dog food either. They'll enjoy being outside more and more though and will eventually grow out of eating everything.
