Dottie wanted to go outside the second we got home from school. Dottie always wants to go "outshide" which is fine by me because I have some serious love for our backyard. Oh and making Dot happy too. But really, our backyard rocks my socks. Our last house was this amazing 1917 farmhouse that we loved dearly, but it's yard was nuttin' but dirt and rock. Not great for the little. Here, we have this gorgeous, lush grass just ripe for barefootin' around in.
