Nothing too exciting going on around here. We've been spending a lot of time playing outside in the new backyard. Adults and dogs are still not supposed to walk on the grass, but kids can. They've mostly been playing in the water table. Which is fun to watch because they just get soaked. I think I will start putting them in their bathing suits everytime we go outside. Otherwise they just go through 2 or 3 outfits a day.
Part of the reason we're spending a lot of time playing at home is because Ava's got a cold and we're keeping her home, hoping to avoid spreading it around. So far Drew hasn't shown any symptoms, and I am so encouraged by this! I've been trying to be careful about keeping their hands clean, not letting them share food or drinks, etc, but I think it's impossible to really keep the germs away when they are playing with the same toys and touching the same things. I'm hoping it is an indication that Drew's immune system is picking up a little bit. In any case, here is a cute video of Ava practicing good hygiene.
Since I've had trouble with YouTube here is the same video using google video. I hope at least one works.
