Spring is almost here in Rhode Island! The weather is finally heating up and it’s time for the kids to get outside and PLAY! It’s been a long winter, so as soon as the weather perks up – with 5 kids in our family – we’re outside as quickly as can be! I’m a big believer in PLAY. The kind of play where you’re running and jumping and climbing and riding bikes and chasing and just being a KID! I’m talking the kind of play where you’re outside for hours, just getting lost in the beauty and the wonder of backyard, neighborhood fun!
My son 8 year old Henry and my 3 year old daughter Victoria love to play together. They’re 5 years apart, but there’s a special bond between these 2 kids. Victoria LOVES to try and keep up with Henry and Henry LOVES to watch Victoria try to keep up with him! It’s an adorable sight to see. It’s magical for me to sit and watch these 2 play together, they are such kindred spirits and the most simply kind of play keeps them the most occupied!
With this past week being in the mid 60’s (which is VERY unusual for Rhode Island), Victoria and Henry were able to wear some Spring Clothing from Carter’s available at Kohl’s that I’ve been so excited to dress them in. The winter was a long few months of layers, layers, layers… well, not anymore! With their Carter’s Spring Collection, they were able to go outside with shorts, tees, leggings and with no coat! It was almost a pinch me kind of moment!
What make it even more adorable for me was seeing the 2 of them run around in such bright and bold Carter’s fashions.
Kohl’s has an incredible assortment of Carter’s fashions for boys and girls – in baby, toddler and kid sizes. Carter’s is just iconic and they really have the best kinds of clothing for kids to be kids in!
They can look fashionable while they play! I had so much fun finding some fashions for them last week! I went for color! What I love is how Carter’s clothing is SO versatile, not to mention – you can easily mix and match with other Carter’s clothing.
These were PERFECT for them!! Since they never like to sit still, it was adorable watching them create FUN together!
What did they do? How did they play? How did they enjoy their 1st Spring Play of 2017?
They set-up running races on our street, but the caveat, they had to hold hands while they ran!
They collected rocks and sticks and tried to pretend it was their own personal money system.
They tried to balance themselves on an old tree stub that they’ve named Larry. We’ve been posing on this very tree stump for years! It’s “part” of our family by now!
They were finally able to take out the scooters! This was a VERY big deal for them!
They went on the playground at our house and tried to see who could swing the highest (I had to help Henry!).
Henry climbed our favorite backyard tree, pretending that it was a gigantic castle.
Victoria just loved pretending she was a Princess, too!
Springtime play, it’s everything! It’s incredible seeing them play and really coming alive through their fun imaginations! Play is a gift and I hope every child gets the chance this spring to just get outside and enjoy some fabulous PLAY!
