With summer finally here, we are itching to get outside as much as possible. I grew up in one of those families where we stayed in the backyard all day long, only stopping to eat when my mom dragged us inside or–even better–brought lunch to the back deck. I have so many memories of my amazing childhood backyard, and now as a parent myself, I recognize how much my mom did to make that a wonderful space for us.
We just moved into a new house with a great backyard, and we are settling right in and making it our own. I’ve been trying to find fun, affordable ways to outfit our new outdoor space with things that will be fun for Cullen, as well as things that will entice his creative side and get his little brain working as hard as his little legs.
