Fun with beans and daddy's little helper

As I have been a stay at home mom now for 3 months, I am constantly trying to think of fun/creative/inexpensive things to do at home with Carter. This past week, I used an idea courtesy of Meredith and Mckmama to let Carter play with beans. So after spending $2.50 on two bags of white/dark red beans, and gathering various household items, Carter set out to have literally hours of fun playing with the beans. He literally sat there on Friday for over an hour just scooping, dumping, raking, and burying his Little Einstein figures in the beans. Who would have thought this could be so fun. Thanks ladies for the idea. We are sure to use the beans more often!

Saturday we had originally planned on going to the Tyler Zoo. But Carter wasn't acting quite right so we decided not to make the trip. So my dear husband literally spent 7 hours outside doing yardwork, mowing, edging, and chopping down tree limbs. We don't need no stinkin lawn or tree service! By lunchtime, Carter was feeling like his old self and wanted to go outside with daddy. He is trying to be such a big helper these days. Then he went a couple of doors down and played with his buddy Junior. It was such a beautiful day. I'm glad we got outside yesterday because now it is pouring down rain. Our newly cut grass needs it though I'm sure!
