One day while Mason was at "school" and I had some free time, I decided to take advantage of this opportunity for a sole shopping trip. I went to Marshalls and Home Goods and walked out with great finds. At Marshalls I scored a pair of Native shoes in scuba green for (even though they look more blue in the picture) for Mason and couldn't resist grabbing a pink pair for Caroline. These shoes are awesome! We have gotten so many compliments on them. I love that they are completely water proof!
At Home Goods I found the best pool ever! It's a turtle pool and water shoots out of it's mouth/head when you hook the hose to it. As soon as we got home, I blew this sucker up while Mason napped. After nap time, we spent the rest of the afternoon in the pool until Brian got home. Best part... it was only $14.99! We have already gotten our moneys worth out of this little pool. And Mason thinks is hilarious to splash me, which is a win-win for me on these hot days!
And lastly, to add to the entertainment in the backyard my parents got Mason an early birthday gift!
Brian plans to build a sandbox for him as well and he has a swing. I think between all these things, he should be set for the summer. The only thing lacking might be a water table? Thoughts?
Any ideas/suggestions on outside toys to keep an active toddler entertained?
