*seriously, not knowing anyone here, I don't know what I would do without facebook. Sad, but true*
My sister in law's mom answered promptly with a number of very fun ides,
most of them weren't really 'new' but they were the types of things you just forget about doing,
or that normally just 'happen' without setting out to do them.

This was the part that got my attention.
We don't have a sand box, but it's a short walk to this little creek that the kids love playing at.
So we gathered up some dinosaurs, some shovels and buckets, took a little hike down
'lady slipper lane' and made....
While hauling some of the larger rocks around Coralee says
"wow, you're pretty strong for such a little mom!"
It was a great time killer!
We got all our crazies out, and by the time we were done,
it was time to get snuggled up in our pajamas.
