Nature

Rocks and water are so much fun!!

Before Lily was born, Will and I would joke about not buying any toys for her (because we hate most of the toys out there) and how she would just play with sticks and stones.

Well, she has turned out to be just that kid! (for now anyway)

No matter what toy we bring for her to play outside with, she much prefers to explore nature and play with rocks, sticks, grass, dirt, bugs.

She must have been listening after all…. 😉

In the meanwhile, we will continue to explore our little “backyard” (the small area surrounding the pool in our building).

Here are some wonderful little curly vines that were hidden underneath the leaves in one of the bushes around the pool.
