I put together Merritt's Sand and Water table (it's farm themed and ADORABLE!) this morning and then put it, his little grill, and his tractor out on the deck! I don't have any sand yet, so I just filled the table with water for now :) He loved it and splashed and played for about 45 minutes, until he realized he was "trapped" on the deck (I used baby gates, so he couldn't get out) never underestimate the will power of a one year old....he shimmied right out through the spaces in the railing and took off!! Ughhh it's gonna be a long summer!! ;) Maybe it's time to look into a nice tall chain link fence...wonder how long it would take him to figure out how to get out of that?!?! Ha!
