Yesterday, however, was absolutely gorgeous. Mid to upper 70's, sunny, with a nice, cool breeze. Perfect weather for some outdoor play. When I told the kids we were going to take the party outside, they were more than happy to oblige.
Okay. I DID have an ulterior motive in driving the kiddos outdoors. With so much rain recently, my family room had been taken over by toys, and there was a TON of dried-up "Play-Doh Gravel" embedded in my carpets. I needed a break from the screaming, and I needed to clean up a bit. Since I have a teenager in the house, I often have him take the littles outside so I can get some work done.
Here's what happened:
Sophie was playing with her super-cool Jurassic World Chomping Velociraptor Head hand puppet. This puppet is SO neat! It is made by the folks who create Nerf products, so it's made from that soft, durable foam we all know and love. It is designed from the specs provided from 63 million year old fossils, which adds to its authenticity. This fierce creature has very intricately detailed skin, ferocious teeth, and angry looking eyes. This dude looks hungry, in my opinion. I wouldn't want to be in his way!
Anyway, kids can really use their imaginations with this fun puppet. They can chomp dolls, die-cast cars, or even Play-Doh Minions. We encourage them not to "bite" each other with the puppet, but our efforts there have been futile. Thankfully, while the teeth look sharp, they are not. No injuries will occur from dinosaur attacks!

The Nerf Super Soaker Zombie Strike Dreadshot Blaster is one powerful water blaster! This double-barreled blaster holds a whopping 24oz. of water, and has a stealthy one-handed operation. Unsuspecting victims are blasted by a double-shot of water from up to 30 feet away! WOW! The water tank also lights up, making it ideal for even nighttime play. (With adult supervision, of course!)
And then, Xander happened. He was waiting in the wings, ready to execute a sneak-attack, Zombie Strike Dreadshot Blaster Style. I almost felt bad for her, but it was too cute not to giggle a little bit!
