Fill up tub, add 1,000 toys, add one adorable red headed toddler = instant fun.  Hallie loves taking a bath at night and sometimes asks for it before we've even finished dinner.  We fill up the tub pretty full with water and let her play for a while.  Then we brush teeth, wash hair (Hal likes to dump the water on her hair to get it wet), scrub the booty, and then Hal "swims" around while the water drains and waves "bye bye" to the water ;)  After the bath we grease her up good with coconut oil - I like this one - put on snuggly pjs, brush her hair and then it's time for sweet dreams...zzzzzz :)

One benefit of living an apartment while we finish our remodel is the fact that there is an AWESOME playground 50 yards from our front door.  Hal calls it "my slides" and she is pretty much obsessed.  Now that we are safely into spring, we spend time there almost every day (sometimes twice), which is still not enough for Hal's liking.  We have been doing this for about a month now and it is so cool to see Hal's playground abilities evolving.  She went from avoiding the rock wall to quickly climbing to the top like a pro.  And the swings...well she likes to do those all by herself now instead of sitting on Mommy or Daddy's lap.  Running to the top of the tower and flying down the slides continues to be her favorite.  I love you, my adventurous little daughter :)
