Rainy Daze

Today has been a rainy, dreary day. Actually, the most perfect of rainy days (for napping, organizing, accomplishing general things, etc.) if you DON'T have toddlers! Days like this make me a bit nervous for the upcoming winter and what we'll do to occupy ourselves!

Alas, we are trying to make the most of our rainy day. One thing's for sure, rainy days = good naps! Hallelujah! Here's what we've been up to so far:

Playing "chase," hence the blurriness :)

Accessorizing...

Pretending to "go fishin."
(Using the drawstring of Mommy's old basketball warm-ups!)

Coloring.

Displaying the crayon she just took a bite of.

Wrestling and bouncing on the punching bag.

Cameron can sure dish it...

But Elly can take it!

Don't forget a quick Swiffer [of the carpet] before naptime!
In his underwear, even!

The main thing that's getting us through this day...Uncle Jay is coming up to Minnesota for college TODAY - and he's stopping to see us on the way! It doesn't get much more exciting than that! Hope you all enjoyed your days - rain or shine :)

As creative as you are - I'm sure there's never a dull moment! One thing comes to mind for rainy days and winter...set up stations of activities for them to move to...like say coloring for 10 min; play-doh (yes) for 10 min, etc...you get the idea. You could fill a good hour doing this...and even exercise tapes are a fun way to be silly or yoga tapes...cute to see them imitate actions :)

I think I should (somewhere) compile a list of indoor activities in MN in the area. Because I need to have something planned for at least 2 days a week this winter. Otherwise we might all go crazy!
