Backyard Shenanigans!

Our backyard is my saving grace. The key to peace in our home. 
A frequent phrase of mine- "GO PLAY OUTSIDE!"
Outside is the best.

Fall in Texas is pretty much perfect. 
Luke loves to be outside. All babies do. 
I won't let him go outside by himself like I will the girls. He is constantly crying at the back door waiting for me to let him out. It's the cutest thing!
His favorite spot- the slide!

Climb up, slide down... repeat a zillion times!
I love everything about this picture! The chubs, the expression, the determined face... everything!

There's no hope for me. He hits every soft spot of mine. Wrapped around his finger.

This picture makes me realize just how blessed I am. Look at that healthy baby boy smack dab in the middle of our very own backyard. Life is good.

Okay, don't get too scared now at the following pictures.
We've actually had neighbors call us... "Just wanted to let you know that you're kid is on the roof!"...
"Yes yes, this is quite normal. Thanks for your concern."

I would say that this is all Tyler's doing, but my kids have been dare devils since the beginning. 
The bigger they get, the higher and crazier it gets. I just pray for no broken bones. 
Seriously though.

Maggie hasn't graduated to the roof yet... she sticks to the railing... haha!

This Daddy of ours... it almost gets me teary eyed thinking about it- 
Every day without fail he comes home from a long day of work and plays for hours with our children.  They play and play and play. I don't think he know's how much it means to me... not just to get dinner finished but how much he loves being a Daddy. And boy, is he an amazing one.

One of the many games they play... the kids call it "BRAINS!!!!" 
It's where Tyler and Luke are zombies and they run around screaming BRAINS eating and tackling the girls and Dixie. haha! It's Luke's favorite game! 
And if the expression doesn't give it away, Tyler gets into it too! hahaha!
