It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood...

Lately we have been blessed with some stunningly beautiful days in Okinawa.  It usually rains from about March to the start of July, and it's looking like we got a break since it rained from Feb-June this year instead.  I have been taking full advantage of these beautiful days by relaxing in the front with a glass of water soaking up some rays while Zach naps.  When Zach wakes up, we have been spending it in his baby pool and playing in the front yard.  He loves the water, but would much rather be at the beach or the pool then in this tiny little baby pool we have.  Some days though, you just want to be in the comfort of your own home instead of all over the place.  And with a dog and a toddler at home while 7 months pregnant- that's exactly what I've wanted to do.  Our friend AnnMarie was nice enough to give us a water activity center to play with too.  
Today we decided to cross something off of our Stepanoff Summer Sixty list- sidewalk chalk.  Unfortunately with the pool and activity center set up it was very short lived.  But it did happen and that's why I'm crossing it off my list now!  Though I know there will be much more chalk fun in our future!  
Zach helped me with this sign at our door!

My boy playing IN the water activity center.  He doesn't get the point of it.  You're supposed to stand next to it not get in it!  And he's only naked because all 3 of his swimsuits were in the wash- proof that we've really been getting out a lot this week!  

The 10 day forecast looks fantastic- so we have much more fun to be had in the future!  I cannot wait to start crossing more things off of our Stepanoff Summer Sixty!
