City Kids

Sometimes I bemoan our small back yard. Other times, it's perfectly fine. We have some nice parks with in easy walking distance for when we need to get outside and the kids need to run and climb and be surrounded by trees and grass. But other times our little back yard is just fine. We have a small garden, wash lines for air drying laundry and flower pots for herbs and annuals.

So what do city kids do in a little city yard? Here's what my city kids did today:

Rock Smashing: 

Sandbox Playing 
(yes, we need new sand)

Dirt Digging

And "Rainbow Making"

And just so I can remember what our back yard looks like in its full summer glory...some pictures from 2012 and 2013 (looks like I didn't take any last year)
