A good way to kill a sunny afternoon, Part 3

Blueberry picking!

And I even managed to get him to NOT eat the berries.

He was eager at first, but quickly lost interest.

I know.  Shocking.

He moved from transferring the berries from one bucket to the other to smacking the weeds with a stick.  He finally settled on watching this on my iPhone while sitting in the middle of the row.  Yes, I am THAT mom.  Sue me.  I wanted to pick blueberries. We managed to get about 5 pounds, so I definitely think it was worth it.

Swinging in the backyard!

I don’t think I mentioned it here, but we were able to get a little play area into the backyard.  Playhouse and swingset, a little park in the backyard, which has been really nice.

Sidewalk chalk.

This is an actual outline of Jaxon.  No need to worry, he does have hands and feet in real life and not just the nubs I drew here.  I tried hard not to make it look like a toddler death crime scene out in front of my house.  Making the whole thing pink did the trick, right?

Jaxon thinks it needs a little something.

As you can see, he doesn’t quite have the technique down yet…
