Outside fun!

Peyton has had a great few weeks. His language increases daily. He is talking so much better now. Most still can not always understand him and sometimes I can not but he is doing much better. He is Mr. Chatterbox!! lol We continue to spend a lot of time outside when the weather is nice. You never know about our East Texas weather, one day it will be very nice and the next will be cold again. I am ready for it to make up its mind. Now that is it April we are getting lots of showers too. We really need it for our grass and plants but that means we can't go outside and play. I knew it was going to be raining on Easter so I took a few shots of Peyton outside before the rain came.

Taking a break and rocking on the front porch.

The Easter Bunny came to see Peyton on Easter morning. He brought lots of things to play with. He brought sand toys for his new sandbox and some new train cars for his train table. Peyton loved playing with the eggs too. We had eggs all over the house.

Once the rain finally quit and it dried up some outside we made out trip out to the back to play. Gaga and Papa were over visiting us and Peyton managed to get Papa up in the fort to play. When they were finished Peyton wanted to slide in Papa's lap and would not take no for an answer. We were all laughing so hard. I don't know who had more fun.....Papa or Peyton. They ended up sliding two times then Papa said no more for now! lol... I know what he means.....the slide was not made for adults....

We were finally able to take the new sand toys to the sand box and play. He had a blast playing in the new sandbox. He even took his shoes off and let his feet be in the sand. He played for a very long time. I am sure we will be spending lots of time out there now. That's fine with me. Being outside is better than sitting in front of the TV. Since the rain has kept us in some Peyton has fallen in love with the movies Cars and The Land Before Time. We have watched them a lot lately. They are both cute movies so I don't mind watching them.

Little Helper boy and Open house at Windridge.

Peyton has had a busy few weeks. When it is nice outside he is out enjoying the weather. He loves the outdoors and everything that goes with it.....digging in the dirt, carrying sticks around, going on walks, plus much more. It you are not careful you will be wearing some dirt, too. lol. Andy has been working on a new patio in our backyard and Peyton decided to help, of course! We are going to love it when it is finished. It just has a few finishing touches and it will be all done. Here are a few pictures of Peyton helping out with the patio......

Taking a rest after all his hard work! He was using the carpet piece that dad was using as a pillow.
This past Saturday was "Horse and Rider" at Windridge, which is their big once a year fundraiser. Peyton was one of many riders that participated. He had a great time like always. All the riders were given a metal at the end of their ride. There were lots of people there and Mrs. Kim said that lots of people took pictures of Peyton while he was riding. I know that I did! When he was finished, Andy and I were able to give him his medal. He did not want to take it off once he had it on.

Visiting with our good friend Mrs. Lana Rogers.
Once we got home from Windridge we went outside to play. Daddy had brought up some sand into the backyard and that became Peyton's mountains. Have I said how much he likes to play in the dirt? He really, really likes to play in the dirt.
