Then we headed to the El Paso Outlet Mall for some shopping! It was a beautiful day to be outside and an even more beautiful day hitting the deals at the Gap Outlet. Jake and I bought a few things there a couple of weeks ago and I apparently signed up for their email list so I got a 20% off coupon that expired today. It was a good shopping day all around! I got 7 long sleeve shirts for the boys for the fall, 2 pairs of crop pants, 2 long sleeved t-shirts and 2 short sleeve polo shirts for $65! I don't always find that many things that I like or that fit so getting the bargains made it even more worthwhile. Bailey also managed to snag a Buzz and Woody shirt at the Disney Store.
On the way back over the mountain, they both fell asleep. In my effort to let them sleep as long as they could, I rolled the back windows down in the van and left them in the van in the garage until they woke up. Maverick woke up first and then Bailey woke up a little while later when Jake opened the garage door to pull his car in after work.
I forgot that I took these pictures of the boys playing outside one day this week. Several days of temps in the 70s have made our playing outside a necessity! The boys almost always need a bath after they come in from digging in our half gravel back yard. Maverick thinks he's big stuff now that he can play outside with his big brother. Bailey didn't want Maverick in the house with him at first, but after Maverick got out a couple of times, he kept begging him to come back inside to play. He loves his "Bro Cole!"
