Some much needed fresh air

If you remember from this time last year I got Lou and Ben some rain boots so we could enjoy the outdoors without ruining our gym shoes. This year was Charlie's turn. Unfortunately, we couldn't find boots small enough for him, so I bought these, which are actually the same size as Benny's! I stuffed the toes to help with his balance, but I'm not sure what good it did.

What made it even funnier is that he was plodding around like a big ol' dinosaur, which is what covers his boots. He only fell a couple of times.

Ben was excited to get out his birthday present to give it a go. Poor guy, he put so much effort into the stomping and the rocket barely got off the stand. Something to work toward!

Here are the cool guys in their boots. They were very helpful! We pulled weeds and got the soil ready for planting in the weeks to come. They're so excited for us to expand our garden: spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, summer squash, jalapenos, green and red peppers, basil, rosemary, dill and cilantro will be filling those beds soon. We can't wait!
