Day 8 - It’s a Barbie World

March 8, 2020

I live in Michigan where Spring might show up on a random day here or there but it doesn’t really arrive until late April. That said, it was 60 degrees today! The sun was shining, the sky was blue, and it was beautiful outside.

My girls took total advantage of this day by pulling the toys out of the basement Barbie World and relocating to the deck. They spread a blanket, carried up the treasures they needed for today’s play fest and they played outside for 4 hours.

The Barbies has wild adventures from climbing trees to hiding in bushes to dangling from branches. They watched wildlife in the yard (I can only imagine the wiener dogs must have looked like enormous dinosaurs to the Barbies!) and they drove their SUVs around the deck from vacation spot to vacation spot. It was quite the day for them.

My girls got some much needed fresh air and I got some much needed quiet time. That is what we call a win-win situation around here!


  1. Go Baribe! Nice on International Woman's Day for Barbie to get outside and do it insert (Nike Swoosh here)

  2. Love hearing that Barbies are heading outside to play-- that seems like a bit of a counter narrative, and one I like a lot! Isn't is amazing how much we appreciate 60+ days when we know they could be 10 or colder. Those days are treasures!

  3. Love this! What great imaginations they have!
