So far this hasnt been a problem since we have tons of space to play outside. However, its starting to get colder and I know eventually we will be stuck inside. So if you know of any good inside activities for 18 month to 23 month old toddlers please leave me a comment. If you happen to live near me and know some great inside activities in the area PLEASE let me know. Just this morning Sammy has climbed onto the following several times: side tables, kitchen chairs, bookshelf, sofa, recliner, stool, and stood on his tiny piano bench. I think I need to look for a toddler gym :-P

It was pretty cold.. colder than I thought it was going to be. I had brought Sammy's costume along for some fun pictures. It turned into some extra warmth for him. Check him out he is a herding dog.. I found this costume on ebay because all the other dogs costumes I had seen did not look like our dogs. Cousin Bradly had fun bowling with the soccer balls:
The boys had fun playing in the big sandbox with all of the digging toys and trucks:
They had a huge slide that dropped 20 feet. You rode on a burlap sack and Tim said that it went very fast.
There was a hay bale maze for the toddlers to work their way through. The boys had a blast playing in the plastic tunnels:
We got to pet goats and bunnies or as Sammy called them dog dogs!
We road a carousel.. I think it was the world's longest carousel ride.
They also had these carts that were hooked up to a 4 wheeler and took you for a little ride. I had some better pictures of this.. but I had to share this one:
Do you see my sister? Can you tell that we both blog ;-) hehe!

Sammy w/ his birthday dump truck

Let me first state that I have been a Redskins fan since I was born. My sister sold girl scout cookies to some of the players that lived in our neighborhood. I was a little young to be a girl scout but I helped deliver the cookies and got to meet some of the great Skins players like Art Monk and Darrell Green. My love for the skins has not faltered in their seasons of less then optimal performance.
I was at the skins game when they played the "Cowgirls" at home and beat them with no time left on the clock. I was pregnant with Sammy at the time. So he has been a skins fan since before he was born.
He now loves to watch the game on TV and claps when Tim and I cheer. He likes to sit on the sofa and watch the game.
He has been working on his tackle ;-)Sometimes he takes a break fromt he game and plays w/ his puppies :-)So I think we have effectively made him into a skins fan!
