Dinosaurs and Teepees

I’m trying to have some real fun with Phoebe on Fridays, you know, instead of the mundane like going up the street, cleaning the house.  Soon, I will be looking after my nephew Fynn on my days off, so I want to have things set up for Phoebe and I to still have great fun together so she doesn’t feel like she is missing out on ‘Mum’ time.

This afternoon, we spent it outside.  Yes the days are getting much cooler, but when the sun is shining, like today, we try to get out.  I bought these eggs from Kmart today, which I was actually going to make myself, I have a recipe, but I couldn’t pass these up for a measley $1 each.

We started work on it together, chipping away at the clay, hoping to find our dinosaur inside.  After Phoebe knew what she was doing, I pulled washing off the line above the table she was sitting at and hung out another.  I stopped every now and again to help her out.  We made a good start, but it is hard work, so we will chip away again tomorrow.

A few weeks ago, our backyard resemebled a jungle.  It was lush and green with plants aplenty, but seriously, Phoebe and her friends were struggling to find the play gym, let along get onto it.  We hired a skip (actually three in the end) and cut back everything (and by we, I mean Hubby).  Granted, we may have gone a little overboard, but with winter coming up, I am sure they will be back to their huge sizes in no time.  But today, it meant Phoebe and I could use some of the bigger off cuts and make a tee-pee!

Hopefully the blue skies stick around for a while longer.  It was nice to get out in the fresh air, even if it just was in the backyard!

Enjoy your weekend!!  What are your plans?
