Backyard fun

So we finally have gotten around to working a bit in our backyard to make it a more fun, more accessible place for Rojo.  We took out our old rusty swingset and had a cedar set custom built with a playhouse ramp so Roa can enter and exit.  HE LOVES IT!  Auntie Ellen and Uncle Bill got Roa an adaptive swing last year for his birthday, so the new playset is perfect for him and Gunnar. 
Along with the set, we had a 16x16 sandbox with an entry point for the gait trainer. A TON of sand was added this weekend thanks to our neighbors Russ and Kelly, and we are in business!

We had so much fun in the yard this past weekend that we decided to take it a step further and do a campout.  We set up both our tents, made a campfire with hotdogs, smores and the works!  Both boys had fun and Roa could barely contain himself!  We  read camping stories, watched "Just Me and My Dad" with Little Critter,... camping was everywhere!  :)
Unfortunately, by 8:00... both boys were exhausted and ready for the house and bed!  No sleep out this time... maybe next time we will brave the tent and sleeping bag extravaganza!

  1. Which gait trainer is that? We are currently trialing a bunch of different ones, but I can't tell which one that is! LOVE the campout idea!
