Good Clean Fun

What to do? It's the end of a long week, the weather is hot and muggy and the munchkins were restless. Nanny is at the doctors so it was just me. In an attempt at entertaining a 5 yr old, 2 three year olds and a two year old, I filled up the empty sandbox with water, got them into play clothes and let them loose. I then found a bunch of all-plastic toys, some paint brushes and a bottle of baby wash. They spent an HOUR washing toys and each other. Now they all smell like lavender baby soap and are happy little campers. 

Afterwards I filled them full of lunch, put the littlest camper down for her nap and now the other three are playing 'restaurant' in the living room with a bunch of plastic ware and silverware. It's a good thing it's all pretend food because I have been served enough potatoes, ice cream and salad to feed an army!

Angie, he is a MOOSE. Totally un-Guatemalan build. He will soon pass up his older brother in size and weight.
