It may look like fall inside our house, but the weather is still very much like summer.

So last Friday the girls and I headed to the backyard for some fun after lunch!


Sweet Pea has discovered the water table now that she pulls up on everything. She loves it! Look at those little tippie-toes!


Little Bug was busy putting “snow” on her legs.


She asked me if I would bring the snow outside. It took me a while to figure out what she was talking about, but I realized she was remembering “S Week” when we played with “snow” (shaving cream)!


Sweet Pea thought about joining the fun but decided watching was just fine with her.


Little Bug found a frog. She loves frogs. She got a leaf and was trying to touch it with the leaf.


She wanted to touch it with her hand so.bad. She asked me, “Do frogs bite?”. I told her that one wouldn’t bite her and to be brave and go ahead and touch it!


Next thing I knew, there was a little girl with a tiny frog in her hand standing right in front of my face.

“Look, Mommy!!!!”


She was asking me, “Do you want to hold him, Mommy?”


Little Bug and her “new best friend” (that is what she called the frog) made their way to the water table.

NewBestFriend got to go for a swim and then jumped into this part of the water table for safety.


As all good friends do, Little Bug was soon on a Rescue Mission to save NewBestFriend.


She got him and then I had to convince her that NewBestFriend would be MUCH happier taking his nap outside in our backyard instead of with her in her bed.


Oh, I can’t explain adequately how much I love moments like these with my girls. There is nothing better than spending time with my girls, watching them interact and explore the world around them.

  1. This is hysterical! Love it! I have a friend whose daughter is into bugs like this. At the pool one day, she made friends with a roach…yes…not sure where he came from, and she tried feeding him crushed up Goldfish…she and Little Bug are two peas in a pod!
