Water Park!

While at Mel's this summer - we went to a 'water park'. No slides or anything - just a park with water squirtting from the ground - I love these! Merrick had the best time.

Warning - Potty Talk

Merrick is turning in to a "big boy" and here is a little update from yesterday... We have our stuff, and the boys wanted me to open the 'outside toy' box, so I did. There are all kinds of things in there: little chairs, big chairs, baseball stuff, balls, cars, buckets, shovels, basked ball stuff, etc. The boys had been in the pool - so of course they are naked - whatever. I'm inside getting boxes unloaded, and Merrill is out with the boys getting the lawn watered. Merrill comes in with a small bucket and Merrick. "We are throwing this bucket away!" he says, as he dumps a dump in the toilet....Merrick had run and gotten the bucket to poop in! while he was outside. 15 minuets later, same thing happens - with a bigger bucket. Then Merrill has Merrick sit and finish on the toilet....which he did! I just love that he (Merrick) ran and got a bucket, and didn't go on the grass. AND the next morning, he starts talking about how he is going to poo on the carpet. I tell him, "no, we don't poo on the carpet." "I poo on the rug!?" (all happy at him self like he figured it out) "no - in the toilet!" "Not on a rug? Not on the carpet?" He is too funny. And he is doing good - its been 3 days with no diapers all DAY long.

More from the Back Yard

I felt bad there were no pictures of Merrick - but then realised that there were not many to pick from - so here are the best 2 of him, with more of Sophie.
Yes - we let our kids pee in the grass, and swim naked, and jump naked with the hose on too - its hot here, if I were little, I would do it too.
