New Toy

A few months ago I received this product from Discovery Toys with my new spring kit. It's an outdoor "Splash Rocket."

We didn't have a chance to use it when I first got it. Then Joe tilled up the whole back yard so we had nothing but dirt for weeks. Then he got around to getting the grass seed and mulch and all that stuff. Then we went on vacation. The grass was finally planted, and watered and watered and watered. It finally grew and we have a pretty decent, nice, green back yard now (great job honey!)

So over the weekend we took the new toy out to try it.



Kayla had a lot of fun with it ... of course it's a water toy!



But ummmm....who do you think had more fun with this? Daddy or Kayla?!

Now THAT looks like fun, will have to find one like it for my kiddos. :)

And as for my high heels, LOL, I had an appointment this morning and wanted to wear them, not at home LOL

But I tossed that idea out the window, not prepared to sprain another ankle so soon LOL

Hope you're having a great day :)

looks like it was a tie between daddy and Kayla as to whom was having more fun! Love, G-Aunt Debbie

I love that thing! I want to sign up to sell Discovery Toys while I'm on mat leave just so I can get the cool toys for Rylan and for my classroom!

mom/grandma said...

It's funny how toys like that can bring out the kid in us :-) Sure is a nice way to cool down on a hot day.

Well - it's a rocket isn't it? Of course Daddy had fun with it :)

Cute cute pics!!!! Your lawn looks wonderful and yeah for good weather, fun toys, and a backyard for fun!!

Sandy said...

I love seeing the different personalities of your family!

I noticed a series of pictures on your website. In the first one: Kayla is sitting on her daddy's lap, happily typing on his laptop. She's in seventh heaven. In the next shot: your hubby is holding her in one arm far away from the computer. Kayla looks teary-eyed and miserable, and he is earnestly trying to fix his computer. Aaah, life!

Do you sell the toys online as well?

abebech said...

That looks like so much fun for both!

AMH said...

Dads always want to play with their kids toys. Anytime Little Gary gets something my husband always plays with it. Sometimes I wonder who is the kid! Kayla looked like she was having so much fun! That is a nice rocket!Joe also looked like he loved the toy!

Michelle said...

Much More - You can sign up and sell while you're on mat leave ... no one says you have to keep selling after that ... or sell at all! You can just sign up to get the intro kit and buy for yourself at a discount :)

Chelle - yep I do sell online too (see "My Discovery Toys site" under my links) Unfortunately I just found out this splash rocket is discontinued! I'll send you an email just in case you don't check back in the comments section though :)

Oooh...the grass is pretty. And the toy looks super fun. I turn my sprinklers on for the kids and they just watch it but won't run in them. Gr

PEA said...

Sometimes the adults have more fun with a toy than the child does! lol I love the pictures and you can tell how much Kayla loved it:-)

Nisa said...

Kayla always looks soooo happy when she's in the water! She's gorgeous. Too bad that toy has been discontinued. Looks like something my kids would enjoy... Heck, me too!
love, Nisa

Overwhelmed! said...

I'd say Kayla's daddy is having just as much fun with this toy as she is! ;)

That's the best thing about raising a child, you have a fool proof excuse to buy all the toys that you'd love ot play with!

Kari said...

Boys and their toys hahaaaa Love the rocket we have the discovery toys skipping rope that attaches to the hose but we have no where to play with it because my pool takes up the whole yard almost LOL

Angie said...

now that looks like a lot of fun! cool toy!

Jennifer said...

That may be a toy I have to check into. The twirling whirling pooh water spout that I have just does not do the trick

Jennifer said...

That is so cool!

Christina said...

Michelle, I am pretty sure your hubby and Bookie would get along great. He is also into "enjoying" Vincent's toys :-)

And THANKS for the advice on the plugged milc duct, I will DEFINITELY use them if I need to again (keeping my fingers crossed I won't need them).

LauraJ said...

She's having soo much fun! Can I come play too??
When's her birthday?
I haven't been around for a while, but when I come back look how much she's doing! How wonderful, she's growing and learning and behaving! Woo hoo for Kayla!!
