Herbs, Toys, and Playing the Paino

The day after the Forest Park Summer fest we went to Steve's parents for dinner, so pineapple upside down cake and had a great time hanging out. My sister-in-law, Cheryl, has a great garden in the backyard from herbs, vegetables, to even a blueberry plant. Last year I had a few containers with herbs and Alexa became really good at identifying the plants. She loved looking at Cheryl's herbs and was especially excited when she was able to pick some to eat.

Another thing the kids really love is the big box of toys that usually makes its way out when we come over. It's just a bunch of small figures, little vehicles and odds and ends, but they get so excited whenever it gets taken out for them.

I was surprised Jared liked playing with these puzzles as much as he did. He hasn't been unto puzzles as much lately as he was a few months ago. He had been putting together 60 pieces puzzles within a few minutes, so I had thought these baby puzzles would bore him, but he seemed to get a kick out of them.

They love to play on the piano whenever we go somewhere where there is a piano. I really wish we could have one at home, but they are expensive, and our house is so tiny there really would be no where to put it. We really do need, however, to get the kids another keyboard (the old one died on us).
