SUN, SAND, & FUN! { it's almost like we are at the beach }

The sun has risen, & my goodness it isn't going away! The days have literally been perfect; warm rays, a cool breeze, & laughter in the air. I couldn't be much more smitten with Spring as I am right this moment.

We've been playing hard lately, spending as much of our free time outside as we possibly can. Daycen has taken a liking to our backyard & the sandbox at my parents house. He could spend hours upon hours outside if we'd allow it. However, as the sun starts to set, the tolerance of Ripsi also begins to lower. Which, trust me, listening to her scream because she wants to go in & him scream because he doesn't want to almost cancels each other out. I'm sure our neighbors think we are the mean parents on the other side of the fence, but I'm okay with that.

I'm okay with it. Really. I am. I'm just not okay with the tremendous headache I get each day from a shrieking almost three year old everytime I want to go inside the house. Any suggestions on how to make this process easier? I'd love it.

Oh, and if anyone is curious what Ripsi does while Daycen throws sand all over. She models & enjoys every single minute of it! Well, until her tootsies get cold.

such sweet photos!
Maybe you could have a special activity planned for inside that you can tell him about 5 minutes before you go in!? or a YUMMY snack you could create together. My girls used to lOVE cinnamon graham crackers spread w/ strawberry cream cheese & strawberries sliced in the middle....
maybe you could have a rice table inside for his cars to zoom through?

Ugh, I really wish we lived near each other, I know that Dallas & Daycen would have a blast & Ripsi and Tallulah would be such cute and fashionable little bff's! ♥

The only thing that's ever worked with Dallas when it comes to having to leave the park or any kind of playing outside is having something he loves even more waiting for him inside like an ice cream or whatever it is that week that he likes. Of course even then we still get to deal with the screams once in awhile because he just does not want to be back inside :\
