We were lucky enough to have our 11 and 13 year old cousins come visit and even stay at our house for part of their trip.
Admittedly, I was a little nervous about keeping them entertained. Once you are older then 8 you are outside my specialty area.
Turns out they enjoy art and messiness.
Phew! That I can do!
We picked up some plastic dinosaur bone toys as prizes from our trip to Boomtown. I thought these would be perfect for the sandbox. Everyone agreed.
So out we went.
Spray bottles led to water bottles which led to huge lemonade jugs which led to our very own swamp.
Daddy did not approve of our creation.
I pointed out that I did refrain from bringing out the hose. That should count for something.
