We did finally get him to try out the steps and while they are a pretty good height up both boys were able to go up them without too much trouble. Before long they even tried to go back down the steps, too. Unfortunately that resulted in both our first and second falls off the slide - one each starting with Connor. Thank goodness though that they both pretty much just popped back up and went on with what they were doing.

The backyard will be under renovation the next few weeks. No, it's not a pool. Not yet anyways. Or not the underground kind I should say. :) One of the first new additions arrived the Friday before we left on our trip. It's a new slide! Kevin got it assembled while we were gone. Unfortunately we got home too late last night to try it out. So today as soon as we made it home we took the boys out to see it. Ryan was especially interested in it, though his first trip up, as well as several subsequent trips he went up the slide instead of going down it. We were pretty surprised when he made it, but I suspect he has had a bit of practice at school copying the big kids.
