Slow Saturday

Happy Saturday! Paul went out for a walk in the woods this morning so it was just the kids and me at home.  I had a simple breakfast after the kids. Then we spent all morning playing. We used Duplos to set up a house and garage, the boxcar and waterfall from The Boxcar Children, and Rabbit’s tree from Winnie the Pooh.

We recently discovered the Playmobil figures bin at a magical little toy store nearby.  The little packages don’t say which figure is inside, so part of the fun is the mystery of what you’ll get. So far we have a mermaid, a mad scientist, a cavewoman (with a baby!), a maiden, and a farm girl.  (In the picture above, the cave woman is Violet and the baby is Benny.)
