Weather in Minnesota this year has been… interesting. Winter seemed to drag, and we’ve been getting so much rain. I haven’t taken any pictures of the flooding, but we’ve definitely had to take several detours so far. It’s hard to complain about having too much water when other parts of the country are going through droughts… it’s really too bad we couldn’t just share. Aside from rain, we have had some really nice days, and we’re making good use of our deck considering playing in the yard hasn’t been much of an option because of the amount of mosquitoes. I think we’re going to have to call someone and just have the yard sprayed because it’s getting kind of ridiculous.
Anyhoo, we have been able to take advantage of the deck, and are really glad we decided to get a larger table and umbrella for the space. Enzo still has plenty of room to run around, and it’s nice to have the option to eat outside. At the very least, having the umbrella means we can easily sit with Phoebe so that she can watch her brother splash around in his water table and not have to worry about putting sunscreen on her. Since she’s sitting up so well, we can probably see about just putting a blanket outside for her too. Our old deck didn’t have a lot of room, but we had a little tent that we’d put Enzo in if we were out on the grass. Granted, when we tried that with Phoebe earlier in the year, a TON of gnats got inside anyway. Definitely thinking about spraying.
