What's Hap-pinning Wednesday: Outdoor activities

It's Wednesday and I am linking up with Jessi and Jenn for a fun "What's hap-pinning Wednesday" post.

Since Spring {Summer} is officially upon us I thought I would share all of our favorite outdoor activities. My boys love to be outside. They wake up wanting to go out and beg to go out as soon as we come back in. Now that the temps are warm {HOT} there are lots of fun things that we can do besides play on our swing set or ride our ride on toys.

We have all of these toys or a variation of them and my boys absolutely love them. I can't wait to get our fun pool set up. Jack has been begging for it daily since seeing the box sitting in the garage. I usually just use it for one season and then pitch it. You can find them on sale pretty cheap at the end of the season.

Here are what my boys would say are their favorite outdoor activities!

  1. I was just saying yesterday that I really want to get some Bunch O Balloons for this summer. The amount of time it took me to fill up water balloons yesterday and then to pop them was ridiculous. Ha ha!

  2. We have a few of these items and recently bought a few more. My girls love the big chalk. I need to get the bunch o balloons. I am sure they would love that!

  3. We still have yet to try those water balloons. This, this will be the summer.

  4. We have that same water table and the boys are obsessed!

  5. That pool looks awesome!! Yes for outside time and fresh air!

  6. Our water table totally broke but it was fun while it lasted!
